The Garments of the Heart

Akhlaq & Spirituality, Striding in Allah’s Shade - Enriching Lives / Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Tell the truth, if there are any stains on our clothes then do we set out for a fine meeting or gathering. Nobody does! We do not even like going there. Today too the garments of our hearts are full of stains. Ever wondered: we are in front of Allah, we need to cleanse and purify them? In reality, the apprehension that these too are being observed by someone is nullified. Each and all the blemishes of our body appear eerie to us for people can see them. We go to doctors; take medicines don’t know what else. And the blemishes of the heart, which are being seen by Allah… who cares! This attitude needs change.

The women of the house beautify their houses, making them sparklingly spotless and striking, for guests would be coming over. Infact, that whole day is spent in cleaning only so the visitor can assert that the lady of the house is very refined and cultured. And the same house is also an incarnation of hatred, spite, malice; it never came to mind that Allah too should say something about our hearts being clean and pure.
