Being of service to others leads to happiness.

Verily, God will say to His servant as He is taking account of him on the Day of Judgment,

God: ‘O’ son of Adam, I was hungry and you did not feed me.’

Son of Adam: How can I feed you and you are the Lord of the worlds!

God: Did you not know that my servant so and so who is the son of so and so felt hunger, and you did not feed him. Alas! Had you fed him you would have found that (i.e. reward) with Me.

O’ son of Adam, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink.

Son of Adam: He will say, ‘How can I give you drink, and you are the Lord of the worlds

God: Did you not know that my servant so and so, the son of so and so felt thirsty and you did not give him drink. Alas! If you had given him, you would have found that (i.e. reward) with Me.

O’ son of Adam, I became sick and you did not visit Me.

Son of Adam: How can I visit you and you are the Lord of the worlds!

God: Did you not know that my servant so and so, the son of so and so became sick and you did not visit him. Alas! Had you visited him, you would have found me with him.’
