Your Heart On A Tray

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Indeed, there is a piece of flesh in the body of the children of Adam such that, if it is sound, then the whole body is sound and if it is corrupted then the whole body will be corrupted. Know that it is the heart.” [Saheeh Bukhaari]

The Prophets were sent to the world to purify men’s hearts. They worked hardest on cleaning the hearts of men from wrong concepts about Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) and from misplaced love, trust, hope and fear. Allah has commanded us to love Him and His Messenger, to love the righteous people, to love that which Allah loves and to hate all which Allah hates. They taught us to place our love, trust, hope and fear in Allah, and only Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

When a person’s heart becomes pure the person becomes pure, when a person’s heart changes, the person changes, his life changes, the purpose of his life changes, his perspective changes, his criteria for loving and hating change, the aims and goals of hard work and trade change, households change, society changes, times change, history changes, personalities and manners of dealing with people change, days change, nights change, the producers of satisfaction change.

The condition of the heart should be such that if you were to empty its contents onto an uncovered tray and take it around the market there should not be a single thing in it which by exposing in this way you are embarrassed, or any one can point a finger to.

When your concept of Allah changes and becomes purified of erroneous beliefs, negativity in life and about other people will also vanish. Correct your concepts about Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to clean your heart of old grudges, jealousy, envy, malice, haughtiness, arrogance, deception… They are like dead lizards and cockroaches rotting away that we store in our hearts. Make sure none of them end up on the tray.
