We are always told that money doesn’t buy happiness right? However, money does buy happiness! How come? Money buys happiness when it is spent on others!
When I spend money on myself, it doesn’t buy happiness. The increase in well-being is when I spend on others. This is the design of Allah!
Our nature is that it makes us feel good when we spend money on others. If I keep that money, it doesn’t make me happy unlike if I spend it on others.
The Creator has made us so that it feels good to help. If someone is dealing with depression, one of the ways that helps them is when they help someone else who is struggling.
