The Void, Sadness, and Emptiness of the Heart

8 April 2009 1,034 views No Comment

by Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyya


“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.”
