you begin to see everything beautiful as only a reflection of God’s
beauty, you will learn to love in the right way: for His sake.
Everything and everyone you love with be for, through and because of
Him. The foundation of such love is God. So what you hold onto will no
longer be just an unstable feeling, a fleeting emotion. And what you
chase will no longer be just a temporary high. What you hold, what you
chase, what you love, will be God: the *only* thing stable and constant.
Thereafter, everything else will be through Him. Everything you give or
take or love or don’t love, will be by Him. Not by your nafs. It will
be for Him. Not for your nafs.” . . -Yasmin Mogahed
