When Ibn `Aun was bidding farewell to another man, he said:
“Upon you is to fear Allah, for the one who has taqwaa never feels loneliness”.
Loneliness is an unpleasant feeling in which a person experiences a strong sense of emptiness and solitude resulting from inadequate levels of social relationships. However, it is a subjective experience. Loneliness has also been described as social pain - a psychological mechanism meant to alert an individual of isolation and motivate her/him to seek social connections.
