Heartache after a close friendship breaks

Q: I am a Muslim girl and I am really suffering from heartache. I had a female best friend. She was more than a sister to me and I love her so much. I really wanted her to be in my life forever but today she said to me that she will not contact me from now on. She really wants to end my part in her life. I am so used to her that I am feeling like I have lost everything by losing her. She just said that she will text me once in a while but will not share the bond we used to share. I am so disturb. I really want her back in my life. Please advise me.

A: Everything in the world is temporary and will end one day with either we passing away and leaving it behind or the thing leaving us in this life. Hence, the sensible thing is to attach our hearts to Allah Ta’ala, the One who is eternal and who will always be with us at all times. In these times, it is better and safer for one not to have too close ties with people as this generally leads to problems or one not fulfilling his deeni obligations in the manner they should be carried out. Hence, you should not regard this as a misfortune, but rather, it is a blessing for you.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
