ALL praise is due to Allah, and may He render our
Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) safe from every derogatory thing, and
exalt his mention, and the mention of his household and Companions.
Whosoever desires to purify his heart will give preference to Allah over his
base desires because the heart that clings to its base desires is veiled
The hearts are the vessels of Allah upon His earth, therefore the most
beloved of them to Him are those hearts that are most tender, pure and
steadfast against deviation.
This is in reference to the hadeeth, “Truly, Allaah has vessels from amongst
the people of the earth, and the vessels of your Lord are the hearts of his
righteous slaves, and the most beloved of them to Him are the softest and
most tender ones” [hasan. Refer to as-Saheehah (no. 1691)]
When the heart is fed with dhikr and its thirst quenched with reflection and
purified from corruption, it shall see remarkable and wondrous matters and
be inspired with wisdom.
Those who passed the limits beyond the bounds in their hearts and strayed
chased after the temporary pleasures of this world. If they had preoccupied
their hearts with Allah and seeking the Hereafter, reflecting upon the
meaning of His Words and His Signs that are witnessed in creation, they
would have returned to Allah.
May Allah help us in purifying our hearts for His sake and His sake alone.
