The Path to Self-Fulfilment seeks to uplift your inner soul and give you the necessary means to live a fulfilling life based upon both the love of Allah and the love and acceptance of the self.
Happiness is crucial to being able to love Allah. How could we really display and realise our love of Allah if we spent our lives in a depressed state? This book presents essential facets of self-fulfilment and happiness: self-acceptance, self-confidence, determination, self-observation, self-improvement, and stress relief. In addition, it addresses issues that are fundamental to healthy relationships, such as effective communication and forgiveness. As the end result of implementing this knowledge, the concept of happiness is examined, with detailed suggestions for learning to trust Allah, accepting Allah’s will in our lives, and sharing our blessings.
I was in need of some reflections for self-love. I think this book did a great job! I also love the language used in the book- it’s beautiful, although can be a bit higher level for some people. It ends with a very practical self-exercise to help us actually take action rather than just reading a book.
