Everything that we discussed in previous chapters concerning happiness can be summed up in the following:
Have faith in Allah (GOD), Lord of all that exists. All else that we mentioned hitherto is useless and is of no benefit unless you have faith in Allah (GOD). Believing in Allah as your Lord, in Muhammad as His Messenger and accepting Islam as your religion, these must be your foundations.
There are two conditions to gaining a good life: faith in Allah and performing good deeds.
The one who believes in Allah (GOD) and does good deeds derives two benefits:
1. A good and prosperous life in this world and in the Hereafter.
2. A tremendous reward from Allah, the Exalted.
