"One fact we learn over and over again, from our own personal experiences, and from others, is that no amount of worldly pleasure, fame, and fortune, brings internal happiness without a higher purpose in one’s life. And that higher purpose can only be the worship of Allah.
Robin Williams had it all: an amazing acting career, awards, world fame, wealth, and everything one could want of this life. He made all of us laugh in public, even as he himself in private was internally sad and depressed. We will never fully understand what was going on inside of him and what internal demons he was battling, but it is a lesson for all of us: life without purpose is not a fulfilling life. This world and all that it possesses will only bring temporary satisfaction - it is only Islam that makes one feel fulfilled and productive.
Allah says, “Whoever does good deeds, male or female, while having faith - that is the one We shall bless with a sweet life (hayat tayyiba).”
Alhamdulillah for the blessing of Islam! And May Allah grant us all sweet and fulfilling lives!"
