Quran and Hadith – 4 Sources of Happiness and 4 Sources of Misery

May 1, 2012

ImageSa’d Bin Abi Waqqas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said:

“There are four sources of happiness and four sources of misery. Among the
sources of happiness are:

1. A good wife who pleases you when you look at her; and when you are
away from her, you trust her in regard to herself and your property.
2. An easy ride that enables you to catch up with your companions.
3. A house that is spacious and of many facilities.
4. A good neighbor.

And among the sources of misery are:
1. An evil wife who dismays you when you look at her, who uses her
tongue against you, and who, when you are away from her, you would
not trust her in regard to herself or your property.
2. A stubborn ride that if you whip it would tire you, and if you leave it
alone you would not be able to catch up with your companions.
3. A tight house of limited facilities.
4. An evil neighbor.”

[Recorded by al-Hakim. Verified to be hasan by al-Albani (as-Sahihah no. 1047 & Sahih ul-Jami no. 3056).
