The Person Who Is Unaware of The State of His Corrupt and Diseased Heart | Imaam Ibn ul-Qayyim (Rahimahullah)

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said:

“Glorified be Allaah! How many a heart is decayed yet its owner is unaware of it! How many a [person] is put to trial by the praises he [receives] from the people, deceived by Allaah’s concealment of his [sins, shortcomings etc] and being gradually led to destruction through the blessings Allaah bestowed upon him [i.e. he utilizes those blessings to commit sins and feels safe from punishment]! All these affairs are a punishment and humiliation, whilst the ignorant one thinks that it is nobility.”

[Al-Jawaab Al-Kaafi: page 140. Abridged]

KHUTBA: Be Like The Salaf And Take Care Of Your Heart And Religion! – Rayaan Barker

Today’s Khutbah by Ustadh Rayan Barker, was a reflection upon the Salaf- Our Pious Predecessors- from The Sahaabah (Companions of the Prophet Salllahualayhiwasallam) and those after them.

The lecture gave us an insight into how the Salaf strove towards improving themselves in the religion. The reminder gives us chance to reflect on ourselves and our actions; and how we should protect and preserve our religion and our hearts.

Five affairs are among the greatest corrupters of the heart – Ibn ul Qayyim (rahimahullaah)


Imaam Ibnul Qayyim ( rahimahullaah) said:

“Too much socialising,  wishing for things, attachment to others besides Allaah, filling one’s stomach and sleep; these five affairs are among the greatest corrupters of the heart”.
