Being fond of a non-Muslim girl

Q: I have a problem with depression. This is related to a girl I like and I feel that she is a test from Allah. But the issue is I cannot get her off my mind. I am a religious person but still with the recitation of Qur’an this ill feeling is still sticking and it’s very hard to focus on anything else. She is not a Muslim which is the other issue. Please brother tell me what I can do about this situation? She is working with me which compounds the issue.


A: Don’t worry about the feeling. Think about death.

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