Attaining Happiness

  • Allah s.w.t. reminds us of the two factors that bring us happiness in this world. They are wealth and secondly, children.

  • It is undeniable that each and every one of us longs for happiness in their lives. However, many are inclined to believe that happiness simply lies in worldly possessions and physical achievements.

  • One should not limit happiness to material attainments. This is because material happiness such as wealth, status, and so on, are simply temporal in nature.  A believer is taught in Islam to emphasise the balance between this world and the hereafter.
