True understanding begins with the heart for the heart sees what the eyes cannot, but a blackened heart is one that has been blinded.
"Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh, which, if it be whole, all the body is whole, and which, if it is diseased, all of [the body] is diseased. Truly, it is the heart."
[Sahih Al Bukhari, Book 2, Hadith 45]
فَواللهِ لَمْ يُصَبِ المُسْلِمونَ بِمِثْلِك أبَداً
كُنْتَ لِلمُؤمِنِينَ كَهْفاً وَحِصْناً وَقُنَّةً رَاسِياً
وَعَلى الكَافِرينَ غِلْظَةً وَغَيْظاً
By Allah, the calamity of losing you is the most catastrophic for the Muslims.
You were a haven, a shelter, and a unshakable fortress for the believers.
And for the disbelievers were firm and furious.
Allah knows when you do something for someone and they don’t thank you.
He knows when you get up to pray in the early hours of the morning while the rest of the world is asleep.
He knows when you hold your tongue instead of being rude or disrespectful.
He knows when you don’t argue with your parents even though you know you’re right.
He knows when you do the right thing when no-one is watching.
He knows when you make duaa for your enemies instead of hurting them with bad words.
He knows when you do the smallest of good deeds, so small even you forget about it…
Imam Amir ul Mu’mineen Ali [a] told Imam Hassan [a]: “Shall I teach you four traits by which you will be in no need of any medical treatment?”
"Yes," Imam Hassan [a] answered. Then, Imam Ali [a] said:
1. Do not eat unless you are hungry;
2. Stop eating before you are full;
3. Chew your food well;
4. And before you want to go to bed, go to the restroom to ease nature.
If you take these in action, you will be in no need of any medical treatment.”❞
