Happiness In The Hereafter

the Qur'an uses the word 'ata' to describe happiness felt in the hereafter means giving and refers to God's uninterrupted giving to those in paradise

what is happiness? if there's one thing we all want in life...it's to be happy. Happiness looks different for all of us...we all have different versions of what happiness means to us and what it looks like but happiness isn't related to what we have and it's not a result of where we are in life but rather your "soul" has more to do with your happiness than anything else and that your "circumstances" and your "character" contribute to your happiness.

Marcus Aurelius

“Everything of the body is a river.

Everything of the soul is dream and vapour.

Life is war and the abode of a stranger.

The only fame after death is oblivion.”

Hope in the midst of trouble

The phrase 'þetta reddast' seems to make more sense when you realise that the first Icelanders mainly were Norwegian farmers and peasants fleeing slavery and death. They risked a 1,500km journey across the rough North Atlantic seas in small open-hulled boats.

They needed a level of conviction and optimism that things will work out, even if life seems hard at present. Of course, it doesn't mean everything will always work out, but they didn't let that stop them from trying.
