Are You That Successful?

As-Salaam alaikum,
The Noble Prophet of Islam, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

"He is successful who has accepted Islam, who has been provided with
sufficient for his wants and been made contented by Allah with what He
has given him."
(Sahih Muslim).

These days when people say 'so and so is very successful, what they mean is he/she is making a lot of money'. By the above hadith, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, explained who qualifies to be called successful. It is not having car x, house in w or a job z but:--

(a) Holding firmly unto the religion of Islam.
(b) Fulfilled needs/wants.
(c) Possession of a thankful heart.
Note this well...
