Love changes the landscape of the heart. It erases the “I” and leaves only the “you“! This is what love should do. It should elevate. Efface. Replace the ugliness of the self, with the beauty of the beloved!
The Arabic word for love, muhabbah, comes from the root word which means “to erase”. True love of Allah transforms the heart because it erases the “I”. It erases the “I love”,”I want” and replaces it with “He loves” and “He wants”. The result is beauty, and a heart set free!
Let the love of Allah heal you, and free you!

You alone we worship, and only Your help do we seek! (Surah Fatihah)
رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ العَلِيمُ
“Our Lord! Accept this from us, you are the hearing, the knowing!” (Surah Baqarah:127)
Rasulallah (ﷺ) said that when a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three: a continuous charity, knowledge by which people derive benefit, pious child who prays for him. [Sahih Muslim]
