Show Notes

“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” This phrase from the United States Declaration of Independence presents three examples of rights that it says have been given to all people. 

But what does “happiness” mean from a Quranic perspective? What’s the difference between how Muslims think of happiness compared to people of other faiths? What does the journey to attaining happiness look like? 

In this episode, host Mohamad Zaoud talks to Dr. Yasien Mohamed, author of the Yaqeen Institute paper “The Idea of Happiness in the Qur’an.”
