Response to a recent question: I feel so far away from Allah

“Suhaib! Man I feel so far away from Allah! I’m a sinner and I’m like trippin! I really don’t feel that I’m close to Him. Really I’m so upset about dis and my heart aches because I know that I’m far from Him. What should I do?”

The Answer:

“You might be far from Him, but, He is close to you!
Turn to Him and you will find Him.”
