Have you ever felt detached from love and connection?Have you ever been told that you’re too hard to love?Have you ever worked your utmost best not to give your heart away?
‘I don’t understand what’s going on ya Allah. All I know is that I need You, ya Allah. I really need You and that I can’t go on without Your help…Oh Allah please don’t leave me to myself. Oh Allah, please don’t leave me to myself. Oh Allah, please don’t leave me to myself.’
To my sister who finds her herself in a similar space that I once held, I want you to know that when it comes to love and connection, there is no fear when we give ourself permission to love, knowing that this love is from Allāh. That it’s a gift from Him. This love and connection is a form of provision from Him, and what is there to resist or fear when we know with full conviction that even if our heart breaks, He is the Mender, who will be there to mend our hearts once again. Alhamdulillaah.
