An individual wrote, I have fallen in love with a boy. I just want to see him all the time. My condition has deteriorated to a level that can not be verbalized. Please, help me.
Shaikh Wasiullah Allahabadi (Allah have mercy on him) replied,
‘The first step to cure of this ailment is to create great physical distance from the beloved (meaning no seeing or any sort of contact with him). When you do this, inform me and I will instruct you further.’
Wasiyetul Irfan, May 1995
These days people ask for help in similar conditions but they don’t take this very first step. It must be very clear that without this essential thing nothing else will be effective. Shaikh rehmatullah would not even instruct any further without this step.
