i think that the pleasure we take at the glimmer in our friends’ eyes as they smile at us is really pleasure at being brought closer to Allah. i think the reason we are happy at any given time is not at any worldly thing, in fact, but at being brought closer to Allah. literally, the only reason any of us are ever happy is because we feel a little bit of the divine. it may be masked by other things, like “that song is so beautiful” or  “i love my little sister.” but all we’re ever really experiencing is the sheer exuberance of being pulled a little closer to the Source of Peace Himself. 🙂
