Inner peace

Real happiness and inner peace can be found in submitting to the commands of the Creator and the Sustainer of this world. Allah has said in the Quran:

[Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest] 13:28

On the other hand, the one who turns away from the Quran will have a life of hardship in this world. Allah has said:

[But whosoever turns away from My Message, verily for him is a life narrowed down, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment] 20:124

Attaining paradise

Hatim al Asamm said,

"The one who delays four things until four others will find Paradise- sleep until the grave, pride until after the accounting of good and bad deeds, repose until after crossing the sirat bridge on the day of judgement and desires until entering paradise"
