In the heart there is a void

Truly in the heart there is a void that can not be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that can not be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that can not be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness."

-Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya

    salaam sister,

    Thanks for this enlightened quote from Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyah.

    It's certainly very true.

    May Allah fill the void in us with his solution.
