Real_Happiness_and_Inner_Peace_001.jpgReal happiness and peace can be found in submitting to the commands of the Creator and the Sustainer of this world.  God has said in the Quran:

"Truly, in remembering God do hearts find rest." (Quran 13:28)

On the other hand, the one who turns away from the Quran will have a life of hardship in this world.  God has said:

"But whoever turns away from the Quran,[1]  he will have a hard life, and We will raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment." (Quran 20:124)

This may explain why some people commit suicide while they enjoy the material comfort money can buy.  For example, look at Cat Stevens (now Yusuf Islam), formerly a famous pop singer who used to earn sometimes more than $150,000 a night.  After he converted to Islam, he found true happiness and peace, which he had not found in material success.[2]



Footnotes:

[1]i.e. neither believes in the Quran nor acts on its orders.

[2]The present mailing address of Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam), in case you would like to ask him about his feelings after he converted to Islam, is: 2 Digswell Street, London N7 8JX, United Kingdom.
