To be close to our Creator Allah (swt) is a fundamental need of every human being. Yet the world around is very often not connected in this way — it is disconnected from the One. How do we find this essence of spiritutality of connecting with our Lord is such a chaotic, materialitistic and distractive world? How to motivate ourselves to struggle and strive to achieve healing for our chaotic inner selves?
