Somebody who doesn't want to be happy? Can you make the person happy? Let me ask you another question. Does happiness in life? Let's generalize now? Does it depend on the person you marry?

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

Do we inherit happiness? from our parents?

00:02:04--> 00:02:09

If we do, what are your own children? Good, Harry from you?

00:02:11--> 00:02:18

Is it possible for us to actually cut off or stop certain things from happening?

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

So that our happiness can continue? Is it possible?

What are the what are the things you can do to cultivate the habit of happiness in yourself? Because no matter what happiness is better than sadness?

00:02:45--> 00:02:51

Now let me ask you another question. Does happiness depend on intelligence?

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

Does it depend on how much school you have gone through?

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

Does happiness depend on education?

00:03:00--> 00:03:01

Does it depend on ignorance?

00:03:03--> 00:03:04

you've answered my question.

00:03:08--> 00:03:12

Let me ask you again. Does happiness depend on intelligence?

00:03:14--> 00:03:18

Are the happiest people the most intelligent people?

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

Does it depend on education?

00:03:22--> 00:03:30

The access to food those with PhDs? But does it depend on ignorance? Are the happiest people the most ignorant people?

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

Are they the most stupid people? Bududa many smart people are sad.

00:03:38--> 00:03:45

Sometimes it is a sad smartness that the cause of our sadness. Some of us are too intelligent to be happy.

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

And some of us are too neat to be happy. Some of us are too wise to be happy.

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

Some of us are two disciplines to be happy.

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

Some of us we are too perfect to be happy.

00:04:01--> 00:04:10

And so we want everything to be perfect before we can be happy. And we cannot even enjoy simple things because we are too smart.

00:04:12--> 00:04:16

Things don't know logon because laugh because we are too wise.

00:04:18--> 00:04:23

We no longer sit down and enjoy company of people because we are better than them intellectually.

00:04:25--> 00:04:31

If your intelligence doesn't make you happy, you are not better than a foolish person.

00:04:32--> 00:04:44

If you cannot convert your education, to what can make you happy, you are not better than someone who has never been cheated in anything. I want to ask you now, should we pray for happiness?

00:04:47--> 00:04:49

Is it worth praying for

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

you to ask for happiness seriously is a serious matter.

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

If you don't

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

who else will give you happiness?

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

Think about it. Who else is in or somebody who has seats that can give it? Someone who has more happiness? How can you expect that person to be done to make you happy, and some of us, we placed the all of our hope 150% on human beings to make us happy, yet when they disappoint us, we start feeling bad, it's your fault.

00:05:26--> 00:05:35

So we all agree, happiness is worth praying for. Pray for it. Oh Allah, I want to ask you to make me be happy.

00:05:36--> 00:06:02

Make everything around me to be sources of my happiness make everybody around me to be sources of joy to me, make me be a source of joy to other people.
