Happiness And Inner Peace
REAL happiness and peace can be found in submitting to the commands of the Creator and the Sustainer of this world.
Allah has said in the Qur’an: “Truly, in remembering Allah do hearts find rest.” (Qur’an 13:28)
On the other hand, the one who turns away from the Qur ‘an will have a life of hardship in this world. Allah has said: “But whoever turns away from the Qur’an he will have a hard life, and We will raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment.” (Qur’an 20:124)
This may explain why some people commit suicide while they enjoy the material comfort money can buy.
You will also find true happiness in helping others, keeping good relationships with blood relatives, sheltering an orphan, helping someone to pay his debts, supporting the weak, feeding the needy, spending money on charity… etc.
This simply means that happiness is not found in collecting money as a lot of people think.
Real happiness is found in enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil.
You have to be always busy thinking about how to make the best use of your time in satisfying Allah and this in fact is the real pleasure of life. You have to realize that your life is short and it is a journey from birth to death during which you have to follow what your conscience tells you.
