My heart My Preacher
There is an organ constantly beats inside you. Yes, your heart. It’s very important not only for your body but as well as your soul to be lived. You must have felt that sometimes you are happy with commuting a sin, but your heart interrupts you again and again. No, It’s not illusion, it( heart) really does it. heart is not just a beating organ but much more than that.
Prophet Muhammad clearly signifies the importance of heart in this Hadith….
Indeed, there is a piece of flesh in your body; If it is good, the whole body will be good and if it is corrupted, the whole body becomes corrupted- and that is the heart.
Bukhari and Muslim
Quran also menifests the importance of heart in different places and in different styles. The most striking thing that it is the heart of Prophet Muhammad saw where Quran revealed-
وَإِنَّهُ لَتَنْزِيلُ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds:
نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوحُ الْأَمِينُ
Which the trustworthy Spirit has carried down.
عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ لِتَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُنْذِرِينَ
To your heart that you might become one of those who warn.
Ash- Shuara- 92-94
💝And be aware, it is your sound heart( Qalb e Saleem) that will save you on the day of Judgement which is clearly mentioned in Quran in Chapter 26 verse 88-89.
يَوْمَ لَا يَنْفَعُ مَالٌ وَلَا بَنُو
The day on which neither property nor son will be benefitted.
إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ
“Except him, who comes to Allah with a sound heart.
These are the authentic evidences that your heart in not just a beating entity but it plays an important role in your beliefs and practices for here and hereafter. That’s why Allah gives it power of preaching. When you do something good, it gives you content. But if you are commuting a sin it resists you from doing so because when Allah intends good with someone, he turns his heart in a Preacher. Surely, Allah is the Turner of hearts. May Allah bestows us with a sound heart.
