There is only one way to free your self… Give in to God.
I was just thinking for as long as we are slaves to passions, love, desires of the worldly things or even people..we will never be free. All these things are not givers of peace. I remember a hadith in which to the nearest meaning its said… The world is accursed and everything in this world is accursed except the place where dhikrullah is made and a student of Ilm.
So like if we give our hearts to these things and these kind of people.. will we ever find peace?
However if our love for these things i.e the world and the people are motivated by love of God we will find peace and tranquility in that as we shall not become slaves to it or them but rather we will always put God before them and hence be protected,,, And Allah knows best.
