Everybody wants to be happy, and the roads people take to fulfil this desire are many. People resort to drugs, alcohol, fame, unlawful relationships, wealth and many other paths seeking this ultimate goal: happiness.
The reality is that all of these paths lead to sadness and destruction except for one: صراط المستقيم- It is the “Straight Path”. It is the path of Allaah. The Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:
“Whoever this dunya is his great concern; Allaah will scatter his affairs, and will put his poverty right between his eyes. And nothing from the dunya, i.e rizq will come to him except what has been decreed for him. And whoever his great concern is the hereafter, Allaah will organise his affairs, and He will put richness inside his heart, and the dunya will come to him, willingly or unwillingly.” [Narrated by Ibn Majah, authenticated by Sheikh al Albani]
