Purify your heart...
It has been so long since my last entry..
I had a mother-daughter chit chat regarding lots of stuff in life this morning.. Talking to my mother is something that I treasure most.. Every single conversation would never fail to teach me how to become a better person.. This morning my mother emphasized on how important it is to have a very pure heart..
The suffering for most of the problems in the world originates in the human heart. Every act of hatred and jealousy, every callous cruelty, every crime committed, and every injustice to the self or others emanates from the hearts of the ppl..
Therefore, my mother told me, if we are to right the 'things', we must first rectify our hearts, and this is why I believed every revelation has been granted to humanity in order to make firm our hearts..
In fact, the most often-recited prayer of the blessed Prophet, peace be upon him was,
"O Revolver of the hearts, please make firm my heart upon the straight way.."
The Prophet once said to his companions, “Do you want to see a man of Paradise?” A man then passed by and the Prophet said, “That man is one of the people of Paradise.” So a companion of the Prophet decided to learn what it was about this man that earned him such a commendation from the Messenger of God. He spent time with this man and observed him closely. He noticed that he did not perform the Night Prayer vigil (Tahajjud) or anything extraordinary. He appeared to be an average man of Madinah. The companion finally told the man what the Prophet had said about him and asked if he did anything special. And the man replied, “The only thing I can think of, other than what everybody else does is that I make sure that I never sleep with any rancour in my heart towards another.” That was his secret.
The Quran states that,
"On the day of Judgement, when neither wealth nor children will avail, only one who brings forth and sound heart."
A sound Heart!
I was inspired. Inshaallah, you will be too.
Let us purify our hearts and be a better person!
