On The Successful One.

The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallama, was reported to have said:--"He is successful who has accepted Islam, who has been provided with sufficient for his wants and been made contented by Allah with what He has given him". (Muslim)
These days when people say so and so is very successful, what they mean is he is making a lot of money. By this Noble Hadith, we understand who qualifies to be called successful. It is not having car x, house in y and a job z but:-- Islam, Fulfilled needs and Possession of a thankful heart. Note this well.
