The Pursuit of Happiness: Deen or Dunya?

 

‘Beautified is the life of this world for those who disbelieve; they  make a jest of the believers, but those who fear God will be above them on the Day of Resurrection. God gives without limits to whom he wills’ – Quran 2:212

‘He who sells his next life for his present one, loses both of them’ – Hadith

‘Truly in remembering God do hearts find rest’ – Quran 13:28

‘While we’re constantly sitting here paying for the disease; the cure is free’ – Amir Junaid Muhadith (previously known as Loon)

‘The things which ye are given are but the conveniences of this life and the glitter thereof; but that which is with God is better and more enduring. Will ye then not be wise?’ – Quran 28:60

‘Whoever Allah destines for endless bliss and endless happiness, he teaches two things: 1. Happiness that lasts forever is more important and more significant than happiness that passes away, 2. You will never be happy, as long as you condition your happiness with something that is bound to perish’ – Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller

‘In the body there is an organ which if it is sound, the entire body will be sound, and it if is corrupt, the entire body will be corrupt. That organ is the heart’ – Sahih Bukhari

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: ‘If Allah loves a person, he calls Gabriel saying ‘Allah loves this person O Gabriel! Love him’. Gabriel would love him and make an announcement amongst the inhabitants of Heaven. ‘Allah loves this person and so therefore you should love him also’ and so all the inhabitants of Heaven would love him, and then he is granted the pleasure of the people on Earth. – Sahih Bukhari
