One day, one friend asked another,

“How is it that you are always so happy?

You have so much energy,

and you never seem to get down.”

With her eyes smiling, she said,

“I know the Secret!”

“What secret is that?”

To which she replied,

“I’ll tell you all about it,

but you have to promise to

share the Secret with others.”
“The Secret is this:

I have learned there is little I can do

in my life that will make me truly happy.

I must depend on Allah to make

me happy and to meet my needs.

When a need arises in my life,

I have to trust Almighty Allah to supply

according to HIS riches.

I have learned most of the time

I don’t need half of what I think I do.

He has never let me down.

Since I learned that ‘Secret’, I am happy.”

The questioner’s first thought was,

“That’s too simple!”

But upon reflecting over her own life

she recalled how she thought a bigger house

would make her happy, but it didn’t!

She thought a better paying job

would make her happy, but it hadn’t.

When did she realize her greatest happiness?

Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren,

playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,

a simple gift from Allah Almighty.

Now you know it too!

We can’t depend on people to make us happy.

Only Allah in His infinite wisdom can do that.

Trust HIM!

And now I pass the Secret on to you!

So once you get it, what will you do?

YOU have to tell someone the Secret, too!

That Allah in His wisdom will take care of YOU!

But it’s not really a secret…

We just have to believe it and do it…

Really trust Him!

In everything you do, put Allah first, and he will direct you and crown your effort with success.
