[Monday Motivation] I'm Attached!
...Yes, I have attachment issues too.
Well, I am a human after all.
But my attachment issue is not with humans (I love my parents, siblings, family friends) or animals (and I love cats and my Mano).
My attachment is with my Allah-Ji whom I've been extremely close to since childhood. He's my bestest friend.
When I was little, lying in the garden one summer afternoon, I looked up to the sky and was making shapes with the clouds. With one of them I made a castle. I said; 'That is Allah-Ji's Castle - His Home' and I imagined I was Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk and I planted some seeds and then a massive beanstalk shot up and became a ladder and I climbed up and went into the castle. I was only about 7, 8 or 9 then.
I bug him 24/7 and tell Him everything. Actually, He already knows everything. But I still bug Him with my stories.
This attachment is so intense that I can be without humans and seclude myself to worship Him and talk to Him.
Only He understand me and my tears!
It's a childhood thing. It's from Him. And i'm eternally grateful as this has allowed me to understand His creation, the human emotion and our ultimate purpose.
By the way, just before you think it, i'm no where perfect and I don't have any intentions of trying to be perfect and I don't claim to be given a free ticket to Jannah. Non of us have been given that ticket. We have to work it. Jannah must be won!
I invite you to learn more about Allah through His names and attributes.
This well help you in your ibaadah - in your Salah and your Qur'an.
Allah (swt) says: “Take one step towards me, I will take ten steps towards you. Walk towards me, I will run towards you.” Hadith Qudsi (partial).
Attachment issues - especially those with humans - especially with a haraam relationship - are a way of saying that we have an unfulfilled need - which usually stems from childhood.
Take a serious look at your life and see where this is coming up for you.

And for the ladies reading this register for my *FREE* Diamonds Masterclass. I reveal my top 3 secret on how i said enough is enough and started living my life on purpose again.
You too can become close to Allah and attached to Him. He too can be your bestest friend - if only you allow Him to be.
Will you give Him that permission now?
He's waiting for you! :)
