Happiness: Consequence of our choice
Cont’d from page 1
Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, But happy is he who keeps the law. — Proverbs 29:18
When pleasing God by keeping His commandments becomes the most important aspect of our life, then God will make everything good for us. This is a promise from God.
God promises those among you who believe and lead a righteous life, that He will make them sovereigns on earth, as He did for those before them, and will establish for them the religion He has chosen for them, and will substitute peace and security for them in place of fear. All this because they worship Me alone; they never set up any idols beside Me. Those who disbelieve after this are the truly wicked. — 24:55
Therefore, our happiness depends on how we set our goals in this life. Our goals should be to worship God alone, and know that our purpose in being here is to please God. We must continuously ask ourselves what’s the most important thing in our lives and we must make God our number one priority.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. — Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13
Anyone who works righteousness, male or female, while believing, we will surely grant them a happy life in this world, and we will surely pay them their full recompense (on the Day of Judgment) for their righteous works. — 16:97
Indeed happiness is a choice, and the true happiness can only be achieved by making God our only Lord and Master in life.

Prophet Muhammad was not illiterate
There is no doubt what so ever that God Almighty is the author of the Quran. It is not just a faith based statement but based on the solid mathematical proof.
According to the Quran, Muhammad was not an illiterate man; he knew how to read and write. Muhammad was dictated by the Almighty God to write down the whole Quran before he died.
God Almighty emphasizes the importance of literacy and commands both the Prophet and us to uphold the same.

[96:2] He created man from an embryo.
[96:3] Read, and your Lord, Most Exalted.

[96:5] He teaches man what he never knew.
[68:1] NuN, the pen, and what they (the people) write.
[68:2] You have attained a great blessing from your Lord; you are not crazy.
Many verses of the Quran reveal the fact that Muhammad could read and write.
[16:98] When you read the Quran, you shall seek refuge in GOD from Satan the rejected.
[17:45] When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier.
[17:106] A Quran that we have released slowly, in order for you to read it to the people over a long period, although we sent it down all at once.
[29:48] You did not read the previous scriptures, nor did you write them with
