The Fundamentals of Happiness

The Fundamentals of Happiness

 

  1. Know that if you do not live within the scope of today, your thoughts will be scattered, your affairs will become confused, and your worrying will increase- theses realities explain the hadith:

“When you are in the morning, do not except to see the evening, and when you are in the evening, do not except to see the morning.”

  1. Forget the past and all that it contained. Being absorbed in things that are one is sheer lunacy.
  2. Do not be preoccupied with the future. Because the future is in the world of the unseen, do not let it bother you until it comes.
  3. Do not be shaken by criticism; instead, be firm. And know that, in proportion to your worth, the level of people’s criticism rises.
  4. Faith in Allah and good deeds: these are ingredients that make up a good and happy life.
