In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious An the Most Merciful

Today I would like to share an article from http://ppimi.org

The 4 Poisons of the HEART:

Ibn al-Mubarak said:
“I have seen wrong actions killing hearts,And their degradation may lead to their becoming addicted to them.Turning away from wrong actions gives life to the hearts,And opposing your self is best for it”

1. Unnecessary Talking

“Do not talk excessively without remembering Allah, because such excessive talk without the mention of Allah causes the heart to harden, and the person furthest from Allah is a person with a hard heart.”
[HR At-Tirmizi]

“What mostly causes people to be sent to the Fire are the two openings: the mouth and the private parts.”
[HR At-Tirmizi]

2. Unrestrained Glances

“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that is more purifying for
them. Surely Allah is aware of what they do.” (24:30)

A righteous man once said:
“Whoever enriches his outward behaviour by following the sunnah, and makes his inward soul wealthy through contemplation, and averts his gaze away from looking at what is forbidden, and avoids anything of a doubtful nature, and feeds solely on what is halal – his inner sight will never falter.”

3. Too Much Food

“The son of Adam fills no vessel more displeasing to Allah than his stomach. A few morsels should be enough for him to preserve his strength. If he must fill it, then he should allow a third for his food, a third for his drink and leave a third empty for easy breathing.”
[HR At-Tirmizi]

Ibrahim ibn Adham said:
“Any one who controls his stomach is in control of his deen, and anyone who controls his hunger is in control of good behaviour. Disobedience towards Allah is nearest to a person who is satiated with a full stomach, and furthest away from a person who is hungry.”

4. Keeping Bad Company

‘Teman yang paling baik adalah apabila kamu melihat wajahnya, kamu teringat akan Allah, mendengar kata-katanya menambahkan ilmu agama, melihat gerak-gerinya teringat mati..’

Friends on that day will be foes, one to another,- except the Righteous.

Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish regular prayers and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship).

A righteous man once said,
“How odd, that some people mourn for the one whose body has died, but never mourn for the one whose heart has died and yet the death of the heart is far more serious!”

HEART, where everything starts..
