Islamic Reflections

I cried because I have no shoes until I saw a man with no feet. Life is full of Blessings. Alhamdulillah.

Happiness is an inner feeling; it is the contentment and satisfaction of your soul. You are the only one responsible for your own happiness. I know many people who keep saying, “If I were richer, I would be happier,” or “If I pass this exam, I will be happier.” There is always an ‘if’ involved. Their happiness is dependent on some worldly objective in their lives, but let me assure you that even “if” this objective is reached, there will always be another one waiting, further postponing their happiness. Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Seek the help of Allah, and do not be frustrated. If something befalls you, do not say: If I had done this, such and such would have happened. Say: Allah decreed, and what Allah wills, He does. Indeed, the word ‘if’ opens the door for evil.” (Sahih Muslim)
