As Allah Says: ‘and Recite Qur’an with Tarteel’.
Allah revealed The Holy Qur’an to be our friend every day, it is an interesting book because it is full of many stories, useful so have much advice and many laws restrictions in it. Qur’an tells us how to do everything and how to deal with everything, so this is the meaning of the holy Qur’an generally.
So we need to understand everything related to this Holy Qur’an, let’s talk about the 4 p’s happiness in the Holy Quran to understand more and more.
The 4 p’s of happiness are Purpose, Positivity, Patience, and Personal Responsibility.
The Guidance: The Quran serves as a guide to belief in the Oneness of God, and leads to explain life as Submission or Surrender to the Will of God (Islam). This complete way of life offers guidance through both personal and communal laws.
The Criterion: The Quran distinguishes between moral and immoral, ethical and unethical, good and evil. The book helps us to understand what is right and what is wrong.
The Reminder: The Quran confirms and reminds the world of the teachings of our past Prophets and messengers.
1. The Quran teaches us how to be thankful and teaches us when we are thankful, Allah gives us more and more:
“…Whoever gives thanks benefits his own soul…” ( 31:12)
2. The Quran encourages us to focus on the good:
When the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) faced the tragic death of his child, Allah (SWT) revealed to him a verse to console him with positivity:
“Indeed, We have granted you (O Muhammad), Al-Kawthar (a grand river in Paradise).” (108:1)
The Prophet (PBUH) was encouraged to focus on the positive during his loss.
3. The Quran teaches us that problems are good chances to learn:
“It is He Who created you from dust, then from a drop of fluid, then from a tiny clinging form, then He brought you forth as infants, then He allowed you to reach maturity…so that you may reflect.” (40:67)
Say “O My servants who believe! Be mindful of your Lord. Those who do good in this world will have a good reward. And Allah’s earth is spacious. Only those who endure patiently will be given their reward without limit.”
(Surah Az-Zumar, 39:10)
Allah mentions the word ‘Sabr’ in its different forms in the Quran. Apart from patience, it can also be defined as endurance, fortitude, steadfastness, restraint, and perseverance.
4- Personal responsibility:
The individual is a part of society and an essential aspect of the Islamic way of life. And the man himself is responsible for his actions and deeds.
Allah says: “You began to say: Whence is this? Say: It is from yourselves.” [ Âl `Imrân: 165] Allah also tells us: “Truly, Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves.” [ al-Anfâl: 53] So, the whole idea of the resurrection and the judgment in the Hereafter is founded on the concept of individual responsibility. The same can be said for our creation.
Allah says: “Leave me to deal with the one whom I created in a lonely state.” [al-Mudaththir: 11] A person will be all alone on Judgement Day, along with his wealth, his children, or his particular group. However, the truth is that even his nearest and dearest will forsake him on that day.
Allah says: “On the day when a man will flee from his brother, from his mother and his father, from his spouse and his children. Every person on that day will have concern enough to make him heedless (of others).” [`Abasa: 34-36]
