This is just a random reflection I had regarding social networking, namely facebook (but it applies to them all). Why do people like it so much? Simply put it, they find comfort being in the company of their friends, of being around people. Being on facebook is similar to being with your friends in real life, because in essence you’re not alone. Being alone, however, is a completely different feeling. If you have trouble being alone, and you find more comfort on facebook, than in sitting alone with a Qur’an in hand, then facebook is nothing but a distraction that is keeping you from tending to your sick heart.
"And the forerunners, the forerunners -Those are the ones brought near [to Allah ] (Al Muqarraboon), In the Gardens of Pleasure, A [large] company of the former peoples, And a few of the later peoples…" Surah al Waqiah, ayaat 10-14
In the Heart There is a Void…“Truly in the heart there is a void that cannot be removed except with the company of Allah, And in it there is a sadness that cannot be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that cannot be filled except with love from 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.” by Ibn Al Qayyim rahimahullah
