From the Islamic perspective, happiness isn’t something that may be decreased to a fleeting assertion of joy. Rather, it’s a long-jogging state of everlasting tranquility and peace of mind.
The contentment one feels in this world at the same time as looking ahead to the eternal bliss of the Hereafter is known as actual happiness in Islam.
Keeping this in mind, let’s talk about the seven key behavior of our Muslim brothers and sisters who stay a gratified and satisfying life:
Say ‘no’ to jealousy
Jealousy is the foundation of all evil. Not simplest does it damage your man or woman for the day of Resurrection however additionally your everlasting nation of happiness in life.
Our Prophet Muhammad said, “If everybody of you checked out someone who become made advanced to him in assets and (in worldly rank and in good) appearance, then he ought to additionally have to observe the only who’s not as good as him, and to whom he has been made advanced.”
Trusting in Allah
Indeed, having complete belief in Allah and staying away from the disbelievers is an excellent manner to maintain yourself from giving in to evil temptations that ultimately cause guilt and discomfort.
وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ تُعْجِبُكَ أَجْسَامُهُمْ ۖ وَإِن يَقُولُوا۟ تَسْمَعْ لِقَوْلِهِمْ ۖ كَأَنَّهُمْ خُشُبٌ مُّسَنَّدَةٌ ۖ يَحْسَبُونَ كُلَّ صَيْحَةٍ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ هُمُ ٱلْعَدُوُّ فَٱحْذَرْهُمْ ۚ قَـٰتَلَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ ۖ أَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ
Meaning: And while you see them (the disbelievers), their form please you, and in the event that they speak, you concentrate on their speech. [They are] as though they have been portions of wood propped up - they suppose that each shout is towards them. They are rivals, so be careful about them. May Allah abolishes them; how are they deluded? Al Munafiqun: 4
Make time for exercise
Making time for your exercise schedule is just as important as taking care of your mental health.
For example, our prophet Muhammad once said: A strong believer (One who takes care of his physical and mental health) is better and more loved in the eyes of Allah than a believer weak idea, [however] there is good in [both types]. Ibn Majah: 79
Pay less attention to materialistic things
It is true that happiness comes from inner peace, not from materialistic possessions and goods. This is why Islam forbids luxury and the pursuit of materialistic obsessions.
Our Prophet Muhammad said: “Wealth is not having many possessions, but rather (actually) wealth is a feeling of abundance in the soul.” Sahih al-Bukhari 6446
Remembering Allah in good and bad times
Indeed, as you try to get closer to Allah, He draws closer to you, showering you with His love and blessings.
ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ ٱللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ ٱللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ ٱلْقُلُوبُ
Meaning: Those who believed and their hearts were reassured by the remembrance of Allah. Without a doubt, by the remembrance of Allah, the heart is assured.
Always be grateful for everything
Being grateful to Allah for what you have helps you to see your problems in a completely different light. It allows you to focus on the positives of a situation so that you can function at your best in any situation.
وَإِذْ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمْ لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ ۖ وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِى لَشَدِيدٌ
Meaning: And [remember] when your Lord declared, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [support]; but if you refuse, indeed my punishment is very heavy.’
In the end, Allah not only loves that you turn to Him with humility, but it is also clear in the Quran:
قَدْ أَفْلَحَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ
ٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ فِى صَلَاتِهِمْ خَـٰشِعُونَ
Meaning: Those believers who are humble in their prayers are truly successful. Surah Al-Mu’minun: 1-2
Life. May Allah give us the satisfaction of living a happy and fulfilled life while following His principles and receiving His blessings.
