The loneliness of isolation


“Every time you feel the loneliness of isolation, remember your companions who have preceded you and be eager to join them; and do not be concerned with others, for they will not avail you at all before Allah. And if they call out to you during your journey, do not turn to them, for whenever you respond to them, they will take you and set you in another direction.”

~Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah [Madaarij As-Saalikeen]
