The Pursuit of Happiness

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

In this dunya, we have amazing luxuries left, right and centre, all around us. Even if we are not considered rich by the people around us, we are still rich. This is because we have more than what many, many people have around the world.

We subsequently become consumed by these luxuries and our worldly lives, from flying in first class to working in a corporate position.

However, can we describe ourselves as “internally rich”? Meaning, do our hearts really feel happy?

Many people may say “how can your heart feel happy?” But when you find Allah SWT, you can tell. The feeling of weightlessness and ease within your body, specifically your heart, is a feeling like no other.

This is the true meaning of being “rich”.

Our status among the people comes from those things that will perish ultimately, such as our physical appearance, the wealth we have, the university that we went to, etc.

BUT our status with Allah SWT comes from our obedience to Allah SWT, the ultimate and only reason for our existence on this earth.

The video below inspired this post.

May Allah SWT help us to ponder upon life often and save us from being swept up in this mirage. Ameen.
