1.0 out of 5 stars A big let down, 6 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Reclaim Your Heart (Paperback)
A friend recommended this book and spoke highly of it and trusting the reviews on here I ordered it. unfortunately it was a real disappointment. I read portions of it and realised that although she raises good points she does not explain the issues very well. She starts on one subject and goes off on a tangent and then associates this to something else and eventually backs it up by using quotes and references from the Quran. I felt she was miss quoting a lot of the verses for example she talks about obsessional love which is fine but then links it to lust and going astray!! finally misquotes a verse from the Quran and links this to this behaviour. Wouldn't it be better to explain that a person has an actual problem rather than to make them feel guilty. Another frequent mishap is that she keeps assuming that certain behaviours are associating partners with God (clearly not)and keeps reiterating to put God in your heart. Surely God is already there and her message should be to establish that connection. Its a shame that this book has been a total let down and a waste of money.

An emotionally abused person often loses perspective. If one is being controlled by the other as in the case of obsessional love and struggling to please others, continues to allow himself to be in this weakened state, knowing full well that attachment to this relationship is damaging & is deteriorating one's faith then it may become shirk, an association of partnership to God. If one is listening to others besides Him while in need of love, turning to & attaching to abusive relationships to please others besides God then this is like the one who worships others, his lusts, his desires & needs. One turns away from the Almighty if one does not detach from but keeps returning to the abuser to fulfill his needs or desires. The author is saying to let go of the abuser(s), detach & honor ourselves, by remembering our true purpose & the Source of all Peace who fulfills all our needs & desires. The source of Love is God. Instead of turning to those who abuse us, we must turn to Him, struggling against injustice & oppression or zulm (Quran 4:97), even if it is against our families & our own selves (Quran 4:135 & 2:217). It is pointless to continue suffering and forgetting the purpose for which we were created for which is to worship the One who is Beneficient, Merciful, Source of all Peace... Let go of the abusers, be patient & persevering, returning with a heart longing for Him, the source of all Joy & Serenity, without any remorse or guilt. All pain & suffering will end when you turn to Him and allow Him to set you free.
