Description :

'A Thinking Person's Guide to the Truly Happy Life' -  What is happiness? What is not happiness? How can one lead a truly happy life? What are the differences between happiness, joy, gladness, contentment and pleasure?

In this concise and easy-to-read book, noted philosopher and Islamic scholar, Prince Ghazi of Jordan, reviews the classical philosophical and religious answers to these questions and then shows Islam's perspective on the issue based on the Qur'an and Saying of the Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ. The answer is a surprising one to which everyone can relate.

This little work admirably argues that people need to have opportunities to be productive and to give, in order to be themselves truly happy.
