sunMawlana Rumi (Raheemahullah) gives the example of those who give their hearts to those other than Allah ta’ala in the following words.

It is the height of foolishness to use a candle or a lamp when the sun is at the height of its journey across the earth, so too is it foolish to turn one’s attention towards the glimmer of earthly beauty, in the face of Allah ta’ala’s Eternal Brilliance.
