Loneliness in 2024.

Do you suffer from it?

It is one of the biggest hidden epidemics taking place in the modern world right now. With over 25% of the world's population described as suffering from loneliness, social isolation and anxiety.

It’s a dangerous slope for mankind to crawl down...

How do we solve this?

Let's dig in to learn more..

Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al Hujurat  (49:10)

 

إِنَّمَا ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا۟ بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُون

The believers are but brothers (to one another in Islām), so make reconciliation between your brothers (individuals or parties) (if they differ or fight). And fear Allāh (in all of your affairs by not opposing His command and not disobeying Him) that you may receive mercy.  

1 Hadith

Abu Musa reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the believers are like bricks of a building, each part strengthening the other,” and the Prophet clasped his fingers together.

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 481, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2585

عَنْ أَبِي مُوسَى عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ كَالْبُنْيَانِ يَشُدُّ بَعْضُهُ بَعْضًا وَشَبَّكَ أَصَابِعَهُ 

481 صحيح البخاري كتاب الصلاة أبواب استقبال القبلة باب تشبيك الأصابع في المسجد وغيره

 

Reflection Point

As time progresses…

People's lives become busier, they have more commitments and less time for others.

Whether a person is older or younger in age. The life that we live has become a lot more demanding upon us than before.

Cost of living rising, commitments of work or society and the tightness of time are just a few to mention.

This can sometimes mean leaving little time for others.

A study carried out by Statista, a reputable research body found that between June 2022 to February 2023, globally 25 percent of respondents between 15 and 18 years old felt "very lonely" or "fairly lonely." 

This is even higher among those aged 19 to 29, with 27 percent of participants experiencing significant levels of loneliness. Respondents aged over 65 showed a lower rate of loneliness, with only 17 percent reporting significant levels of isolation.

So we must ask the question.

What is the solution to this?

It’s actually a lot more straightforward than we may think.

Possible steps to take are:

  1. Make time for others in your families and communities.

  2. Reach out to those who you see that are in need.

  3. Strengthen the ties between your Muslim brothers and sisters.

The religion of Islam, is a global brotherhood and sisterhood of 1.8 Billion people.

More than 25% of the world's population.

As the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “the believers are like bricks of a building, each part strengthening the other”.

So what about our building of 1.8 Billion bricks!

Are there not bricks that are in need of repair?

Should we not seek to repair them?

Reflect!

This week, we have designed a really strong infographic, showing the important role bricks play in making a house complete. It shows how vital one brick (The Muslim) is to the building (The Ummah) and how we strengthen each other upon righteousness and piety and not upon sin and transgression.

It’s precisely the reason why we do what we do here at Sunnah Infographics.

Encouraging our online community upon goodness, while offering simple, flexible productive learning all on the go via email.

 

Remember...

"Whoever guides someone to goodness will have a reward like one who did it."
