The Felicitous

The Felicitous- السعيد

1. The felicitous is one who considers that which is lost [to him] as insignificant.

1ـ السَعِيدُ مَنِ اسْتَهانَ بِالمَفْقُودِ.

2. Felicitous is one who fears the punishment [of Allah] so he has faith, and hopes for divine reward so he does good deeds.

2ـ اَلسَّعيدُ مَنْ خافَ العِقابَ فَامَنَ، ورَجَا الثَّوابَ فَأحْسَنَ.

3. Verily the most felicitous of people is one who has an exhorter in himself [that urges him] to obey Allah.

3ـ إنَّ أسْعَدَ النَّاسِ مَنْ كانَ لَهُ مِنْ نَفْسِهِ بِطاعَةِ اللّهِ مُتَقاض.

4. Felicitous is one who makes his obedience [and worship] sincere.

4ـ اَلسَّعيدُ مَنْ أخْلَصَ الطَّاعَةَ.

5. If you would like to be the most felicitous of people through what you have learnt, then act upon it.

5ـ إنْ أحْبَبْتَ أنْ تَكُونَ أسْعَدَ النّاسِ بِما عَلِمْتَ فَاعْمَلْ.

6. Indeed only he is felicitous who fears divine punishment so he safeguards himself, and hopes for divine reward so he does good, and longs for Paradise so he wakes up [to worship] in the night.

6ـ إنَّما السَّعيدُ مَنْ خافَ العِقابَ فَأَمِنَ، ورَجا الثَّوابَ فَاحْسَنَ،وَ اشْتاقَ إلَى الجَنَّةِ فَادَّلَجَ.
