Assalamualaikum Shaykh,

May Allah Taala bless all of the shuyukh and murids.

I’m currently living in a country where I am far away from home. I have practically no family or friends around. I sometimes feel very very lonely and my only hope is that my lord is with me.

Living in a Western country. I wonder how to live. Practically everything around in this country calls us to dunya. As much as I wish to be alone to protect myself from any badness, it’s now very heavy for me. Is it allowed for me to socialize with people around? And how can I alleviate the burden of loneliness? And the real question is how do I live? I don’t want to say that small sins are okay because my heart does not agree but how do I balance dunya and deen without doing ”sins”.


A`udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem

If you feel too disconnected, moving to a community with a greater number of Muslim population can help you. This shall be a social and religious support that you can depend on, and even contribute to.

Abdul Shakur
