What is happiness? What is not happiness? How can one lead a truly happy life? What are the differences between happiness, joy, gladness, contentment and pleasure?
In this concise and easy-to-read book, noted philosopher and Islamic scholar, Prince Ghazi of Jordan, reviews the classical philosophical and religious answers to these questions and then shows Islam’s perspective on the issue based on the Qur’an and saying of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace). The answer is a surprising yet easy one to which everyone can relate. If you want to understand happiness and want it for yourself and your family, then this is the book you have been looking for.
This little work admirably argues that people need to have apportunities to be productive and to give, in order to be themselves truly happy. [Zaid Ra'ad al-Hussein]
