The feeling of insufficiency and incapacity is the major source of discontent and unhappiness. We tend to look at people above us and desire to be like them.
Islam advises us to look at those below us and feel content at what Allah has provided us. The most effective way is to forget the people with higher standards of living. Allah says in the Quran, “Do not strain your eyes in longing for the things that we have given to some groups of them to enjoy, the splendour of the life of this world through which we test them. The provision of your Lord is better and more lasting.” (Quran 20:131)
