In light of ayahs 96 and 97,what is the secret of success in life?
The key ingredients of success in life are righteousness and patience. Along with this one must be akhirah-oriented. Using the temporary benefits of the dunya to gain the permanent success of the hereafter.
One can only attain TRUE success in this life if one works on attaining succes in the next life. One can find true contentment if one is righteous and patience in this life. With this one can find contentment both in the dunya and akirah.
The secret of success in life is also using what Allah has provided us to attain His pleasure , and by constantly reminding ourselves that what is with Allah is must better and everlasting.
Then inshAllah will Allah provide us with success in this life and in the hereafter.
