Finding Comfort in Being Alone with Allāh

Imām Ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

When you see yourself running away from finding comfort in Him to finding comfort in creation and from being alone with Allāh to being alone with others, know that you’re definitely not good [enough] for Him.
