The True Meaning of Peace of Mind
Complete peace of mind or even a taste of it cannot be achieved without the knowledge of the route and true meaning of the word peace. Bliss, contentment, euphoria, happiness,and tranquility all define the term peace. Many cannot fathom the achievement of such a pleasure on Earth and our ignorance of the true definition of peace has led people to the verge of chaos and turmoil. Peace comes from “salam” and “salam” comes from Islam, submitting oneself to the one and only true god Allah Subhannah wa ta3alah. True peace is IMPOSSIBLE to achieve without completely submitting our hearts to our creator, because he knows us better than anyone in the universe, even ourselves. It's incredible to see people living their lives in complete and utter despair not realizing that the key to genuine happiness is through Allah. Without Allah we would not exist and all praise is due to him, therefore to believe that we are completely content without remembering Allah and submitting to him is nothing less than absolute insanity and disbelief (kufr). The Remembrance of Allah is the straight path towards righteousness and ultimately peace of mind. Simply remembering Allah and saying Bismillah, Alhamdulilah, or Subhanallah, will keep away the shaitan and any bad thoughts that interrupt the contentment and joy we all seek.
