A young girl asked a consultant,
“I am engaged now to someone. Can I forget my love to my first fiancé?"
He said, "Yes, you can. Just ask Allah to help you."
His response confused me.
Did he really understand what means to love someone?
Did he really understand the rules of hearts?
Did he think that our hearts are objects in our hands that we direct them to whatever direction we want?
I have unshakable faith in the ability, power, and mercy of Allah. However, I also recognize how He has created us. He has created us with certain inclinations, desires, and feelings. Our ability to control, guide them varies depending on many factors, but our hearts are not in our hands.
