The Muslim & Loneliness – 10 Verses for Reflection

994538_136449193232667_1924331789_nBismillah (In the Name of God)

When many Muslims think of Ramadan they can remember beautiful moments spent together as a family: eating suhoor1 and iftar2 , bustling into the car to make it to the masjid for taraweeh (late night congregational prayer), celebrating Eid together. Yet speaking to some reverts will reveal the deep sense of loneliness they can experience at iftar3 or on Eid day. This series had initially been intended for any revert brothers or sisters experiencing loneliness during Ramadan. However as I came to realise, this feeling of loneliness is not restricted to reverts or the month of Ramadan, so I hope it will be of benefit to whomever and whenever they feel utterly alone. Insha’Allah (God willing) this series will provide just 10 ayat (verses) to reflect upon from the Book of Allah, a Mercy, Healing, and source of Peace for the believers.

Number 1: “Whatever is in the heavens and earth exalts Allah, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” (Qur’an 57:1) Read the rest of this entry

There were many people who reported successful results while several others who documented failure. Obviously, there are several variables that could lead to the experiment not working as it should.
