A Message to my heart

Since 2012-11-22

“There is an organ in the body, if it becomes virtuous, all the body will be virtuous, and if it is defected, all the body will become defected, this Organ is the Heart.” [Agreed upon]

O heart…or should I say “O my enemy!” why do I see you deformed, losing your balance, you perceive things differently than what they really look, as if Allah had sealed you, thus not differentiating between truth or falsehood, good or evil not even guidance and stray. Everything to you is equal; Goodness and filth, pretty and ugly, white and black.

 
O heart…My life is chained to you and my deeds are according to you, if it’s good then my life is good, my deeds are better and you will be at the moment a reason for my and your salvation. On the other hand, if you became corrupt then my life will turn into hell, burning in flames until it tears you apart, until then my poor heart you will be reason for my and your destruction….no... no… no.
 
O heart…or better off, should I call you “O enemy”, I could never feel secure while being with you; you turned my life into fear, pain, agony and remorse.
 
If I can just get hold of you even once I would have ripped you from my chest tearing you into pieces…No…No…No…I won’t shred you, nor I will lose you, instead I will extract and purify you and return you to your place in a pure and fine state not knowing evil or remorse. How did you become so hard and harsh? Wronging others and the first you have wronged is yourself. You’re the first wronged and oppressor at the same time never bent or broken walking in the desert with no provision your mount is about to collapse wearing it out. You destroyed yourself, not only yourself but everything beautiful. You turned it into a picture with no feelings; its color is remorse and pain, its brush sins and wrongdoing.
 
Now the time of reckoning has come, time of punishment, time of interrogating. You labeled yourself as brave but you’re the most coward you can’t do any act of good or beneficence, instead you do harm and evil. You are labeled as the pulse and life, rather your life has come to halt with no breath in it, you stopped your worship, cutoff you relation with Allah the Creator Glorified and Exalted. You labeled yourself with beauty while you’re the ugliest with your acts and attributes, you say what you don’t do and do what is contrary to what you say, and you show qualities that are not really in you. Your appearance negates your inner self and your inner self negates you appearance. You labeled yourself with patience and you’re the most impatient; you couldn’t stand affliction, bitter towards your Creator and you disobeyed Him. Your distant from His Qur`an and the Sunnah of His Prophet - prayers and peace of Allah be upon him - where your principle in life is to be without one, walking through the pathways as if you owned it swaggering with joy and arrogance forgetting the words of Allah Glorified and Exalted be He: {And walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance. Verily, you can neither rend nor penetrate the earth, nor can you attain a stature like the mountains in height.} [Surat Al-Isrâ` 17:37]
 
{وَلا تَمْشِ فِي الأَرْضِ مَرَحًا إِنَّكَ لَنْ تَخْرِقَ الأَرْضَ وَلَنْ تَبْلُغَ الْجِبَالَ طُولا} الإسراء: 37
 
Transliteration: Wa Lā Tamshi Fī Al-’Arđi Maraĥāan ‘Innaka Lan Takhriqa Al-’Arđa Wa Lan Tablugha Al-Jibāla Ţūlāan
 
Acting in tyranny, devastating and wrecking as if Allah Had destined this life for you eternally, all your deeds are reckoned and your breathes are counted, your life has a starting point that you know, or may know and it has an end that non knows, not even you.
 
The End…yes the end, life and death, punishment and reward, pride and humiliation, paradise and hellfire.
 
Why do you choose punishment, humiliation and hellfire? Why did you forsake all your principles and virtues based on the Qur`an and Sunnah and now you are grasping onto principles and virtues from an unknown source and identity, its value is based on importing. Your clothes are imported, intellect, even your morals are imported … what are you waiting for O heart? Do you still have anything to attach to? Why did you abandon your religion, teachings, identity and principles?
 
I fear for you because you’re my heart, you’re a piece of me, that I couldn’t abandon or it could abandon me.
 
O beloved heart
 
Remember the words of the messenger of Allah prayers and peace of Allah be upon him where he said: “There is an organ in the body, if it becomes virtuous, all the body will be virtuous, and if it is defected, all the body will become defected, this Organ is the Heart.” [Agreed upon]
 
«ألا وإنَّ في الجسد مضغة: إذا صلحت صلح الجسد كلّه، وإذا فسدت فسد الجسد كلّه، ألا وهي القلب» متفقٌ عليه
 
Did you notice your value and what it implies of virtuosity and defect? With your virtuosity all the body becomes virtuous and if it it’s defected it will all be defected. You’re an important organ, an organ that all the other organs depend on, do as he tells them and refrain with his orders {Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) to be affected by Allâh’s Reminder (this Qur’ân), } [Surat Al-Hadîd 57:16]
 
{أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَنْ تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ} الحديد: 16
 
Translation: ‘Alam Ya’ni Lilladhīna ‘Āmanū ‘An Takhsha`a Qulūbuhum Lidhikri Al-Lahi
 
One of the righteous people -May Allah have mercy on him- heard this verse when he was about to commit fornication when the night covered the day. He went to her and she prepared herself for him, on his way to her, he heard someone reciting the words of Allah Almighty {Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) to be affected by Allâh’s Reminder (this Qur’ân),}, then he said “Indeed O Lord, it is time, it is time”. He took a positive step that was a reason behind the change in his life forever. He didn’t hesitate nor delay, he didn’t wait for the next day to take a decision, he took it immediately “Indeed O Lord, it is time, it is time”.
 
This is the believing heart that returns quickly to Allah even if it committed a sin, even if he robbed, even if it committed fornication, what is important is that it returns to Its Lord, return to Its Creator. The pleasure of Allah with a repentant remorse person is great, a pleasure that would exceed pleasure with life revived.
 
It was narrated in the authentic Sunnah that a man lost his camel, his means of travel, in the desert with it he lost all his provisions, what could a man like this do at this moment, he lost everything, and lost all his life, what will he expect? He can’t wait for something else except death, yes death. What is your thoughts O heart on a person waiting for death? Life turns from blessing to misery, all his days and years that he keenly looked up to, his future that he drawn his hope and wishes in, all of that will turn to minutes and seconds, even moments the person waits for the end. His death in this big desert will not be noticed by anyone except predators from wild animals keen for this fresh hunt, all of them waiting for this prey, they will tear him to pieces, no…wait, there will be no remains in the first place, after a while he will be as if he weren’t here on this earth. This dead man went on staring at death waiting for it to finish off what is left of his hopeless pulses. While taking his hard breath, less than moment’s relief in the horizon, it’s my camel! My provisions! My things! My life!....Yes, My life came back to me, I feel it, my heart beats are increasing and uneasy, “O Allah, all praise to you” because redeemed my life to me again (You are my servant and I am your lord), he uttered that mistakenly from the overwhelming cheerfulness where he wanted to say (you’re my Lord and I’m your servant).
 
Words of praise with this cheerfulness to finding his lost life again, look O heart to this overwhelming happiness that filled this man’s heart, do you not agree with me that this overwhelming happiness wouldn’t have been given to him except with the mercy of Allah upon him? So the happiness of Allah with his remorseful repentant servant exceeds the one happiness of this person who redeemed his camel.
 
O heart why do you insist on enmity and roughness? Why do you insist on cutting ties?
 
O heart let your pulses be praises to Allah and your beats greatening Allah and seeking His forgiveness, turn your destination to your Lord and Creator, avoid the path of satan, he doesn’t want for you except evil and grief, pain, sorrow, distress, depression, heartache, regret and remorse. The devil swore by Allah’s Glory to allure you: {[Iblîs (Satan)] said: “By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all,} [Surat Sâd 38:82]
 
{قَالَ فَبِعِزَّتِكَ لأُغْوِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ} ص: 82
 
Transliteration: Qāla Fabi`izzatika La’ughwiyannahum ‘Ajma`īna
 
Look at this ferocious war that your enemy blatantly declared on you, a war that doesn’t need thinking or reckoning.
 
O heart the way is still opened for you; you’re still pumping with life, and still have some sense. Seek forgiveness from your Lord for what you did in your past and be ready to do some good in your coming life, always put in your mind the mercy and forgiveness of Allah, His Kindness, grace, pardoning and generosity. Take heed with righteous deeds and don’t forget the words of our kind Messenger (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him): “Every son of Adam is a sinner, and the best of sinners are the repentant ones.” [Reported by At-Tirmidhi 2499 and declared good by Al-Albani]
 
«كل ابن آدم خطاء، وخير الخطائين التَّوابون» رواه التِّرمذي 2499 وحسَّنه الألباني
 
May Allah let you be upon the hearts that are humble and lenient when remembering Allah and return to the right path. He is the One sought for it and Capable of doing it.
