In our life all of us yearn for happiness and tranquility in our heart. But how can we get this happiness? One scholar says that if the person wants happiness and delight in his heart, he should know six things and implement them:
- Knowing what benefits him
- Knowing the way which takes to that benefits.
- Going on this way
- Knowing what harms him
- Knowing the way which takes to that harmful thing
- Avoiding that way
Surely the best thing that benefits the person is that listening, learning and understanding the Qur’an. It gives us best answers for above things. It tells you what benefits you, which way takes you to that, how to go in the way, what is harmful, which way takes to that and how to avoid this way. Because this Qur’an is from Creator and Lord of the World. Allah (God) says:
“There has come to you from Allah a light and a clear Book. By which Allah guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darknesses into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path. ” Suuratu Al-Maa’idah 5:15-16
Special Note before reading Verses of the Qur’an:“Literally, ‘Our.’ The ‘royal We’ is barely used in English, but it is a common feature of Arabic speech, used to indicate the importance of the speaker. So when Allah uses “We” or “Our”, note that these pronouns show Greatness and Grandeur of the Lord, not plurality. When the listener or reader, hear or read, “Our” or “We”, he feels greatness of the Lord.
