One of the greatest evils that modernism has opened on human beings is to turn it into an unsatisfied identity. No doubt, such a type of person can not have a peaceful attitude to himself and his surroundings, nor can he have a strong connection with his creator. However, the quickest way for a person to reach his inner peace is to be able to be satisfied and happy in every situation he encounter. Divine religions that aim at the happiness of man's world and the hereafter have shown the ways to get rid of the vortices that may fall into him. In this context, the concept of rida, which is one of the basic moral principles of the Islamic religion and which expresses that the person is pleased with what he has in it, is important. The framework of the concept of rida is drawn out in the Qur'an and hadiths. Rida was one of the main concepts handled by the Sufis. In this study, definitions and interpretations of Sufis about rida, according to sufis rida is h?l (mystical state) or maq?m (mystical station), and the relation between the other concepts will be examined. In addition, the approaches of the Sufis will be examined to determine whether it is possible to consent to situations that do not conform to human wishes and desires. The proposals of the Sufis about how to behave in the face of the troubles and sorrows that humans fall into will be revealed. Does praying contradict rida? Does opposition to sin and evil prevent rida? Answers will be sought.
