Every person wants to attain contentment. But what does it mean if you're struggling to be content with life?

In this short snippet, Dr Omar Suleiman talks about how contentment is about perspective and balancing the desires of the dunya.

"It's all about what you're seeing," says Dr Suleiman. "The Prophet (SAW) said look at those that have less than you, not those who have more than you. Look at the blessings you have, not the ones that you don't have."

The video is from "Attaching to Allah" — a new series that will air on Islam Channel and be available on video on demand from August.
