Loneliness is a gift...


Because being lonely is one of life's greatest pleasures. I love being alone. I miss being alone, just me and my thoughts. I love being alone somewhere near nowhere so that I may contemplate. I haven't found time to do so much. I've been to tied up with hectic routines.. A deep feeling in me... of wanting to be alone searching for solace creeps in. Yes tahajjud in the middle of the night is a great way of being alone with your Lord. All the others sleep and snore but having that strength to wake up and sujud in the wee hours of the morning is a gift. Not everyone God allows to wake up and prostrate to Him. Only the chosen ones... I keep asking when I'm slacking in my Tahajjud...Why? What and where did I  go wrong untill I am denied from the gift of prostrating and can find NO stregth to open my eyes, take my Wudhu' to pray. I believe the fault lies in me. I must have done, said, did something wrong.

Remember how the Prophet pbuh during his late years before entering Prophethood? He contemplated all the time on top of Mount Hira'. He found peace in being alone. I do too really. And being alone close to nature.. THAT is profound.

"People think being alone makes u lonely. I don’t think that's true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world" - Shiekh Waleed B

Imagine the peace of being alone, with your thoughts close to God. Bliss.
