HAPPILY EVER AFTER.…… thats the dream of everyone. Thats what we see in fairy tales and want our endings like them. Its the life that everyone wants.
There is a mis- concept in our society that MARRIAGE IS THE KEY TO HAPPILY EVER AFTER.. This concept is totally wrong.
Prophet Yunus (A.S) found happiness in:-
- the darkness of night,
- the darkness of Nile,
- inside the whale
The companion of Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H), Hazrat Abu Bakr(R.A) was beaten by Quraish. But he did not worry about himself. Infact, he just asked how was Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). This is happiness.
HAPPINESS is basically because of IMAAN.
Happiness is not to do with the money or wealth of this DUNYA.
There is a book one must read “HOW TO CALL UPON ALLAH” BY ‘IBN-AL QAYAM.’
“One who changes, changes because of his desires.”
Most people think that money or wealth, women, music gives pleasure.
The question to those people is:-
- If money, women or music gives pleasure then why did Elvis Presley killed himself??
= Music is a distraction. In hospitals in Australia, music is atleast played for 5 mins to relax the patients and distract them from pain. Music can distract but it can not reduce the pain or give satisfaction.
2. Why did Michael Jackson killed himself, when he had the above things (i.e. money, king of pop =music, women) ??
= Michael Jackson used to take drugs and pills to sleep. He had Lack of Inner peace although he had everything in this world including wealth, lavish home, extreme money, etc
3. Why did Marilyn Monroe who had money, who had everyone she desired, she had beauty, who was an idol for women (and women want to be like her adapting her looks etc.), killed herself??
= All the fame, beauty, money, looks can’t give satisfaction and Inner peace.
4. What was the end of Pharaoh Ramesess, Namrood, Qaroon who had Powers and thought that they were the best??
= Power, Money can’t save anyone because no one has the Authority to rule over the world except Allah (S.W.T.).
The point in all this is this world (DUNYA) is very tempting and full of pleasures but the Inner peace and satisfaction cannot be achieved in this DUNYA if u lack IMAAN.
