What does it mean by “living a happy life?” It depends on the definition of it that varies according to different factors like different age levels, needs, culture, region, mindsets, status and many other factors that vary from individual to individual. Even a single person has different meanings of happy, successful life at different stages of his life. But ultimately it means satisfaction that results in happiness, which things makes us feel satisfied varies a lot!

Research has shown that there are some basic things that affect happiness in life like better living standards, fulfillment of needs of money, shelter, food, home. After these all then comes other things that can affect or give you a structure of happily living. Like in , , and in many other countries surveys, similar results have been found.

It is great if we are enjoying happiness and peace in life but what to do if it is not there? Is there any way to be happy all the life and maintain this thing? Or if yes then how to achieve and make this possible? The answer to all is yes!

* Be thankful for the things you have and not to think about the things that you don’t have, be optimistic

* Never compare yourself with others especially to ones who are higher in rank than you in any aspect of life as in this way you will move towards thankless attitude and will get depression.

When you are hopeless you become easy target of depression, anxiety and many such things but when you turn towards your Creator you find hope everywhere. Allah says in QURAN:

Allah even in difficult times gives us hope of that time when there will be easiness in life. He says in QURAN:

What Allah says about thankful attitude showing people:

And thus there are a lot of verses that tell us to keep hope, how to live a happy life even when we have become alone. But here I have written few verses considering length of topic.


I would like to say at the end about its conclusion, “Happiness is not a goal but it is a by-product of a life well lived. Never cry by thinking that it is over as it is never so, just smile as happiness depends on us.”
