    The Way To Achieve Happiness

    By Abdurrahman Demashqeyyah1

    It is the nature of every person to seek happiness. Some people strive to seek material happiness in this world away from religion, thinking that this is the true happiness. But this kind of happiness will be succeeded by pain and sorrow at the Day of Judgment, and its people will know that their striving led them only to misery and not happiness.

    While others know that the true way to happiness is to obey God and follow His religion. For them the pleasures and riches of the world are of little consequence. When this happiness penetrates and fills the heart of the believer he does in fact live in this world as if he were in Paradise. Those are the people who find true happiness in this world.

    What kind of happiness could be greater than that of someone who humbles himself to God, worships Him, strives for His pleasure, and strives to enter Paradise and have salvation from Hellfire?

    The believer lives with such a sweetness in his heart that if the masters of the earth knew of it, they would fight him to death to take it from him. God has said:

    Whoever does right, whether male or female, and is a believer, We will make him live a good life, and We will award them their reward for the best of what they used to do. (Quran, 16:97)

    Happiness is in the good life mentioned in this verse, that even the rich disbelievers cannot find, despite the money they have. That is why we are not surprise when we know that many among them committed suicide.

    To reach true happiness, we need to know what is the purpose of our life, how to reach success in the hereafter, and to fulfill the requirements of reaching this success by following the commands of God and His true religion.

    We know much about Mars, Earth, moon, stars, and galaxies, thanks to the century of knowledge. But how much we know about our eternal life after death and how to reach success in the hereafter?

    People need to eat every day to supply their bodies with energy and to keep themselves healthy. If they stop eating for a period of time, diseases will sneak up upon them and overtake them, and perhaps even kill them. Similarly, people also need food of another kind, food for the spirit and heart. It is unfortunate that while people are careful never to forget to feed their bodies, they do not show the same concern for the health of their souls and hearts. The heart needs food as the body does. The diseases of the body and the debilitating effects they have are not more dangerous than the diseases of the heart and soul.

    Understanding The Nature Of The Human Being
    Dr. Yahya al-Yahya

    It is necessary to understand the fundamental nature of a human being, that he is:
    weak, hasty, ignorant and unjust.
    He is also unappreciative, anxious, obstructive, fearful, mean, stingy, and miserly.
    He loves to argue, arrogantly ignores and turns away from his Lord in wealth and health, and despairs when in poverty and sickness.
    He also rejoices and boasts when in wealth to other slaves of Allah.
    He is never fed up or bored of asking for wealth.

    These characteristics are always present in one; however, they increase or decrease, surface or fade away according to the upbringing and the amendment of the spirit.

    He is also afflicted with hardships, works industriously, and struggles diligently all his life.

    Allah the Most High says:

    "Man is ever hasty." [Israa', 11]

    "Mankind was created weak." [an-Nisaa', 28]

    "Man was created of haste (i.e., impatience)." [al-Anbiyaa', 37]

    "But man [undertook to] bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant." [al-Ahzab, 72]

    "Indeed man, to his Lord, is ungrateful." [al-'Aadiyat, 6]

    "Indeed, mankind was created anxious. When evil touches him, impatient, and when good touches him, withholding [of it]." [al-Ma`arij, 19]

    Anxiety is strength of impatience in states of affliction, and strength of attachment to this world and holding onto it in states of blessings, fearing it will diminish and slip away.

    "Say: 'If you possessed the depositories of the mercy of my Lord, then you would withhold out of fear of spending.' And ever has man been stingy." [al-Israa', 100]

    "Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful." [Ibrahim, 34]

    "But man has ever been, most of anything, [prone to] dispute." [al-Kahf, 54]

    "And when We bestow favor upon man [i.e. the disbeliever], he turns away and distances himself; and when even touches him, he is ever despairing." [al-Israa', 83]

    "No! [But] indeed, man transgresses because he sees himself sufficient." [al-Alaq, 6-7]

    "And if We give man a taste of mercy from Us and then We withdraw from Us and then We withdraw it from him, indeed, he is despairing and ungrateful." [Hud, 9-11]

    "Man is not weary of supplication for good [things], but if evil touches him, he is hopeless and despairing." [Fussilat, 49]

    That is, man does not get tired of supplicating for good, i.e. wealth and health.

    "Indeed, We created man from a sperm-drop mixture." [al-Insan, 2]

    "O mankind, indeed you are laboring toward your Lord with [great] exertion (i.e. striving throughout your life until you meet your Lord, hastening toward death)." [al-Inshiqaq, 6]

    Since these characteristics are in one's fundamental nature, then those who overcame them and progressed ought to guide the ones that are constrained and imprisoned by them, for they are in need of mercy, advice and rectification. "You will not believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself."

    "So by mercy from Allah [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah." [Aal `Imran, 159]
