comment Why did God create us in such a way that we enjoy things most if we work hard to attain them?
Rabbi Becher simpletoremember.com/authors/a/rabbi-mordechai-becher in his shiurim speaks of a deeper meaning of nehema dekisufa - that one learns to be similar to God by being a giver. only then can he appreciate the reward of Olam Haba which is essentially clinging to God

comment Existence of Heaven and Hell
i think the rambam means that they will cease to exist in the olam haba but will be punished in the after life before olam haba. he even lists in hilchos teshuva the groups of people who have eternal gehinom, i.e. a very long stay there.

comment Existence of Heaven and Hell
that's a big statement to say gehinom is not a place of punishment. most sources seem to say it is.

comment Do we have any proof (Biblical or other Judaic) that current-day Arabs have lineage from Yishma'el?
the torah predicts his descendants will be pereh adam. Rav Hirsh notes it doesn't say adam pereh, i.e. the main thing is pereh which looks like adam, not the other way around
