Happiness is one the main concerns of human being. It can be discussed from three different angles: that of semantics and examination of this concept; from ontological point of view and the study of certainty or otherwise of happiness, the realm of its realization, its being innate, volitional or free and the role of virtues in happiness and similar related issues. Still another way of dealing with happiness is that of epistemology examining the ways in which one can be aware of his or other people’s happiness. In this article an attempt was made in dealing with the problem from all three aspects according to Al- Farabi who can be called philosopher par excellence, the origin of his theory and finally a critical review on his theory.
