Happiness lies in knowing Allāh was created by Umm Yousuf
Shaykh ul-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullāh) said:

"Know that the poverty of the slave in front of Allāh is that he should worship Him and not associate anything with Him and He does not have a partner who can be compared to Him. A similitude of this (dependence) in someway is like the body's dependence upon food and drink, even though the difference between the two similitudes is great. For verily, the reality of the slave is his heart and soul and there is no rectification for them except through their Lord Allāh, the One besides whom there is no one worthy of worship; and there is no tranquility in this world except by way of His Remembrance. So if the slave achieves delight and happiness without Allāh, then it would not last. Rather it would move from one type to another and one person to another. As for the happiness from his Lord, then he would achieve that in all times and wherever he is, his Lord would be with him." [Majmū' al-Fatāwa Vol.1 pg 24]
