You know, it really is from Allah’s mercy upon our weak selves that He hasn’t connected absolute happiness to anything other than Him.
Not to wives, husbands, jobs, children, countries, wealth, health or anything else, as these matters, if lost, can be replaced, or at least partly replaced.
But if Allah is lost in the life of a person, what can replace Him?
True misery isn’t in losing any of the above, but when the irreplaceable One is lost!
مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِنْ ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنْثَى وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً
“Whoever does good, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a happy life..”
[Al-Qur’an, Surah 16, Ayah 97]
