For example, when I'm job searching or working, it can be repetitive. I start to feel lost and lonely (even when people talk to me). It starts to feel pointless too...my mind goes to a dark, miserable place (but not always just from time to time).

Sorry, not sure if it's in the correct category.

I guess we could link this with the Qur'an. What would be some Quranic advice for feeling lost in life?

Its psychological feelings..

population of world is increasing resources are limited to few people at this age you can experience a lot more people who think/feel same like you..

things happened in time/space in such a way that none can control over it. soon you will discover it,
average person understand it after 50s .. but now a days people are computerised hence they are  discovering things quickly..  :laugh:

some issues/factors what make human mind feel lonely..

1 JOB/work/money
2 health/illness/disease
3 failure in relationship/family
4 getting late in achieving results/targets.


REASONS

the main reason is when we compare our time-span with another person/people time-span

POSSIBLE cures..

reduce the desire of happiness or change the perception of happiness..


BECAUSE

someone else painted/directed/created  all of it without our wish/control.. one day perhaps that  someone unlock the next level in which u start learning some of the mysteries of the information what we are experiencing..

good logic

If we search for our true conviction, by recognising that we are accountable to the CREATOR-If one believes in a Creator-, then try the following:

1- Put GOD 24/7 in our mind. This will change our attitude and priorities.
2- Being under the watchful eye of GOD ,we start to be conscious of our life , conduct and  behaviour.
3- We start by "taking our accountability seriously" , Aware to do to others no harm, to respect and value everything. Do our duty whatever it entails.
4- Fulfil our contracts. If we are paid for a job, do that job to the best of our ability or undo the contract.
5-Trust in GOD.Talk/complain, ask...GOD like you would a very best friend. We need support in this life and GOD is the best supporter.
6-Enjoy what you do or change the way you live. GOD will help eventually regardless of our fear.
No need to feel lost or feel any loss. with GOD as our best friend.
GOD bless.
Peace.

Peace,

Absolutely, but I think that comes with the territory of receiving God's grace upon the select few who have been given the truth. It is hard to find any passion or desire in life, speaking for myself, when the only thing that interest me is God's word. Everything else seems pointless. On the bright side though, I use the time I have left by exercising the best of my abilities to carry out God's commands before that Day comes. Use what you are experiencing, sadness/depression/loneliness as an opportunity to please God, by acknowledging that all this that is happening is because of God's will, and embrace it through patience, perseverance, and faith. Everything you are feeling is not in vain, it is for a specific purpose for His glory. Remember, what you are feeling is no accident :)

57:22
Not strikes any disaster in the earth and not in yourselves, but in a Register before that We bring it into existence. Indeed, that for Allah (is) easy.

57:23
So that you may not grieve over what has escaped you, and (do) not exult at what He has given you. And Allah (does) not love every self-deluded boaster

9:51
Say, "Never will befall us except what Allah has decreed for us, He (is) our Protector." And on Allah [so] let the believers put (their) trust.


Create a Godly mission for yourself to pursue everyday for His sake. Maybe create 1 year, 5 year, and 10 year goals which will help establish a blueprint to look forward to. I believe this can give any person of faith to have more purpose in life that will require you to strive in this world, not in vain, but for God's glory. Hope this helps. Peace.

Salam, search for opportunities to do charity or acts of kindness. Sometimes even talking to another person is an act of charity. My coworker was in severe depression over the end of his relationship and just talking to us every morning helped him come out of it. In everything we do is some blessings from Allah so take advantage and grab at those opportunities. If we feel like society is uncontrollably damaged (which it is) and we try to break away from it we miss those chances to make ourselves better.

The world entered a dark and challenging period. That's what I've seen for the last two years. Narcissistic energy is sweeping the world.

Embrace worship and goodness. Show full submission to Allah.

Continue reading the Qur'an by understanding and reflecting in at your own language, albeit a few pages per day.

Peace

Mohammed.

salaam Sarah,

See what the Qur’an says about people who are in a good bond with the creator.

10:62 For the allies of God, there is no fear over them nor will they grieve.
10:63 Those who have believed and are aware.
10:64 For them are glad tidings in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. There is no changing the words of God. Such is the great triumph.


Can you imagine being in such a state! How blessed are those who achieve such a level of understanding! Doesn’t matter whether we are rich/poor, employed/unemployed, married/unmarried etc. We won't feel alone/helpless, even if the whole world is against us.
It's a spirit which keeps us Conscious of our being/existence from nothingness, and it keeps us in the present -whatever/how hard the circumstance is. We realize what life actually is. We understand the simplicity/clearness of life.

We are born and grew up/ we are living in a system which is nearly filled with deception i.e. we're living in a highly materialistic society. What we see/ what we hear etc. in our day to day life influence us and we imitate it knowingly or unknowingly, depending upon our understanding of life.

We are equipped/blessed with incredible power, but the majority is unaware of that, the way they lived/they are living their life made them weak in understanding. They are far away from the reality. They are contented with what is physical and superficial; leaving/forgetting what is unseen. People live in such a way that they created Life even though they do not agree it as a fact.

The Qur'an is a mercy which teaches us to utilize the power within us to explore and enjoy this wonderful world which is designed/engineered for us, and guiding us to open worlds of happiness.
-my current understanding. Verify for yourself -17:36.
O you who believe! Enter perfectly in islam/ Surrender yourselves wholly unto God [2:208], [3:19-20,85 2:132]

This is because we are made for higher level understanding. Learn about yoga and be free. Research psychedelics. This is how you get out of that boring zone. Real life is not boring. The life that shaytan wants you to live is boring. The life with Allah is Supreme Majesty. Do as much charity as you can ideally a minimum of 20% of your wealth to real causes, something right in front of your face not a distant donation. Distant donations make you feel like charity is seemingly worthless while making something real happen in front of your eyes makes life feel supremely beautiful.

Strange, really strange! - that's quite exactly the time span I am wondering now what is going on in society now. Simple things like greeting for example. People now often don't greet at all or do it in a manner as if they had to pay money every time. Never ever saw this before in my life to this extent. Very un-quranic:

4:86 And if you were greeted with a greeting, so greet with better from (than) it, or return it, that God was/is on every thing counting/calculating.

I notice communication is collapsing. Both willingness and ability to communicate. Not something about difficult matters, just normal abilities to make conversation. They often can't stay more than one sentence with the same topic. Elder women who want to look at all costs like twens. Young women looking mostly not nice and pretty any more, like it used to be. But at the same time very obsessed with their body... and more ...

Yes, narcissistic, very dark and dense energy.

Feeling lost amongst God's enemies is a good sign to be probably on the right side, I would say. It's a difficult testing period now. But:

2:187 They (your wives) are your garment and you are a garment for them.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. (Matthew 23:15)

You've made some interesting points. But on the other hand, hasn't society always been a bit narcissistic? I mean if you read the Qur'an, the enemies wanted to stone certain prophets just for expressing their new religious views. Doesn't that show a great lack of empathy even thousands/ millions of years ago? Its something that's always been around.

I appreciate your answer but when you quoted that 2nd verse I  :'( *cries* lol I've never had a husband or partner before, it's so hard to even find one who follows the Qur'an alone because it means I'd have to gather the courage to seek someone online which isn't easy haha

Even though I'd love to have a partner, I think a partner is only one factor to feeling less lost. Sometimes the ones we love can also make us feel alienated if they for example behave in a certain way we may not like.

Surely, people were never better. At least in known history. For example after Jesus departet, his disciples thought they are now in the end times and Jesus will shortly return. They surely had also some good reasons/perceptions of the world around them, to believe that. But there are some things which have never occured before. One thing, which is not so small as it sounds, is the immense amount of pictures, we are flooded nowadays in every day life. It has a big emotional impact on our subconscious. I think narcissism has to do something with it.

Seeking on the internet for a partner is something I personally would only do as a last resort, if there somehow would be no other chance. For friendship it's ok, for example if I know nobody who is interested in a particular hobby of mine. I have never understood how people can search for a partner with a check list in mind. Also I don't understand why some Quran alone believers want to marry only a Quranite. The intention to meet a believer in the quranic sense, so a Muslim - can also be a traditional muslim - is enough. Everything else is not within our control. I wish you all the best to find a good partner!

But narcissism is more than just about loving one's own reflection. I mean the selfishness, the huge ego, indifference for the fellow man. But it's true that the media affects our subconscious.

I ideally would like to marry someone who follows the Qur'an alone because I guess it's an ideal. But a very unrealistic ideal. What are the chances of trusting someone online, let alone being attracted to them when there's hardly any of us...the thing is, so many sites say that traditional Muslims idolise Muhammed therefore are not true believers. I don't know, it gets confusing. Sometimes I tell myself that as long as he'd believe in God and is a good person then maybe that's enough. But then a while after, I become filled with guilt because I don't know whether or not this person would be classed as a 'believer'.

But where is the logic, when even christians (explicitly allowed at least the christian women) can be married (5:5). Then traditional muslims should not be allowed? What one favours is of course another thing.
