How Do I Find Love in Loneliness? | Why Me?

Sometimes, what you see as someone else being unfairly favored might actually be qadar at work in your favor. So beware of envy and defeat overtaking you, and make an effort to recognize the wisdoms in your life. Because when it comes to Allah’s decree, it’s not the most materially blessed or loudest mouth that gets far ahead, but the most grateful and perceptive heart.

I’m so lonely… The fear of loneliness can be crippling. Worse yet is when you feel lonely in a world full of people and can’t see a way out. Could being alone be what’s decreed for you in this life? No matter the type of loneliness you are experiencing, the Most Merciful has wisdoms and greater gifts written for those who find closeness with Him.
