90% of the time I wish I had no feelings
Except only feelings of love towards Allah.
If Nas is truly the man for me, then is it right that I feel emotionally attached to him?
Is it right that my feelings are dependent on his response and actions?
Is it right that my heart feels heavy and uneasy?
Maybe this is a test? Clearly, a test from Allah.
I don’t want and need Nas. At least not for now.
There is no one who could understand your pain but Allah.
We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there.
Allah (swt) tells us that paying heed to His signs is the benefit, indeed the essence, of being a mu’min. Nothing is real outside of Him, and if we are able to fill our heart with this reality, if all circumstances and all conditions become a manifestation of His will in our eyes, than His guidance will come regardless of how heavy or complex our affairs may seem.
Allaah owns your happiness so don’t look for it far from Him.
Note: ‘Istikhārah’ in Arabic means seeking guidance to make a decision concerning something.
SubḥānAllāh, Allāh is so Merciful to us! He knew that it would be hard for us to make decisions easily, so he opened a special lines of communication for us to Him when it comes to decisions…it’s called Istikhārah prayer!

الصبر هو شفاء في كل شئ
Remember to always purify your intentions— do this before praying, stepping outside, putting on your hijab, giving naseeha, etc. You don’t know what Allah swt will hold you accountable for if you happen to act on personal desires that conflict with the ethical teachings of Islam.
Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be far sighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be shortsighted as to not able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never runs out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.
