The name of this book is taken from a verse of the
Qur’an, the full text of which is:
Be they men or women those, who believe
and do what is right We shall surely endow
with a good life: We shall reward them
according to their noblest actions (16:97).
The meaning of the “good life” mentioned in this
verse is clear from the phrase “according to their
noblest actions”. A good life is a life of good actions.
The commentator of the Qur’an, ad-Dahhak, has
defined it as “being content with an honest living
and serving God in one’s life.” This is the meaning
that the Companions of the Prophet and their
followers generally inferred from the phrase.
