    Rasul Allah (sal Allahu 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.” [Muslim]

    Nowadays when people say, ‘So and so is very successful’ what they mean is, ‘He/she is making a lot of money.’ In the above mentioned hadith Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) explains who qualifies to be called successful. It’s not having Car X, House in W and Job Z
    but:
    1. Islam.
    2. Needs fulfilled.
    3. Possession of a thankful heart.

    Mash'Allah, yes the Qur'an has healed me of many distresses since I began reading and reverted, now I cannot stop reading the Qur'an daily. The way of the life of the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wasallam to teach how to stay steadfast and keep faith has kept me alive and well Suban'Allah. JazakAllah Khair

    1. Successful in this world and Hereafter
    2. Successful in Hereafter
    3. Successful in This world only
