  • How to achieve tranquility of the heart?

    Asalaamu alaikum

    Theres 20 parts which I'll post overtime inshaAllah - but soooooooo worth the read, like it's amazing how just a few words can impact your heart so much mashaAllah tabarakAllah :inlove:


    Part 1 :love:20:46)


    As long as we begin by recognizing that Allah is with us and He is close to us, there remains a solution to our inner worries. There are things we need to know in order to develop our relationship with Allah. Then there are things we need to do in order to maintain that closeness to Allah. And finally, there are things we need to aspire for to achieve the ideal relationship with our Lord. We pray that by the end of the series, we will all have developed a stronger relationship with Allah.

            Part 3 :love:

            Tawakkul - Reliance upon Allah swt :inlove:

            73:9)

            Have you ever had that feeling of anxiety in your heart? The truth is, we have all felt this way at some point in our lives. Sometimes, the uncertainty is just too much to bear, or the hardship of a moment prevents us from seeing any light at the end of the tunnel. At times we desperately want some kind of medicine, a pill perhaps, to miraculously take these worries away.

            But we do have that. This pill is called tawakkul

            So what does it mean to rely on Allah; to have tawakkul in Him?

            It means to be firm in your heart.
            With tawakkul, our external burden or outward struggle is to plan, to use our means, and to work hard, but in our heart there is no longer the worry of this burden. If you are sick, you seek out the best option: a professional doctor. If you are applying to university, you take your time in preparing your application to meet the criteria. But also know that after you have done your daily work and faced struggles, you should feel a resounding rest in your heart. Why?

            never abandons them nor leaves them to another source. He has given Himself this Name and made it known to us, so that we know this is an essential attribute of His; thus, we will never be let down . Even if things do not go according to plan, we know

            And Allah says,

            Allah is telling us in Surat Al-Muzzammil that He is the Lord of the East and the West, so will our needs ever go outside of the East and the West? He tells us in Surat Al-Fuqan to put our complete trust in Him, Who never dies, so how can we put our trust in people who do?

            But if the condition of tawakkul is that we use our provisions and resources, what if we lack the means?

            Tawakkultawakkul, we will never seek haram means to escape our situation, because we believe it is only Allah who determines the result.

            tawakkul. Do what you can, but have trust in the guarantee that Allah will give you the result you need.
            ...And he who fears Allah - He will make for him a way out. [65:3]
            "Put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him)."

                Thinking well of Allah swt
                How many people have felt this way at some point? Sometimes, our sins weigh heavily on us. We recognize our mistakes but instead of turning back to Allah (swt), we turn away. We feel that we must be so bad that even the All-Merciful will reject us. Other times, we do not see the fruits of our perseverance and believe that we will not be given what we have worked so hard for. Perhaps we do not even begin an endeavor, thinking there is no use.
                4:27)

                Shaytan does not just want you to go to hell, but also wants to ensure you live in hell in this world. Just like he despaired, he wants you to despair. Our good opinion of Allah (swt) should never allow us to do that. Allah (swt) wants to accept your repentance, because your repenting is recognition of His Name al-Ghaffar (the One who constantly forgives).

                Just as the Prophet :saw: told us that Allah (swt) is too gracious to turn away the hand that asks Him , He is also too Merciful to disappoint you and your good opinion of Him.

                Think well of Allah when you are tested
                Tests come to us in a myriad of ways. We have already discussed why tests happen in a previous post18:30)

                    Al Jabbar - Mending the broken heart :love:
                    :inlove::inlove:




                    Ya Jaabir kul kaseerjibeerashaytan
                    The example of the Prophet :saw: is a beautiful one. Imagine being 50 years old, having just lost both your wife of twenty-five years and your uncle who took care of you as a child. Imagine walking into a town in order to ask people for their protection, and instead have them throw stones at you until your feet bleed. How would you have felt? How exhausted, both spiritually and physically, would you have been? And yet, the Prophet :saw: calls out to Allah in one of the most beautiful and heartfelt (supplication):


                    If we think about the journey, it did not accomplish a great victory nor did it help to convince the Quraysh that he was a Prophet. Rather, Allah honored him after all the hardship he had gone through. Think of the resolve the Prophet :saw: must have had in his heart and the tranquility he must have felt after such an experience.

                    Therefore, we have to always remind ourselves of this blessed name al-Jabbar; Allah will mend your broken heart. It may be through a kind word from someone that brightens your day or it may be a talk that you attend. It may even be something greater. But call on Allah like the Prophet :saw: did, recognizing this attribute, and know that He will manifest this Name in your life.
                    ...And he who fears Allah - He will make for him a way out. [65:3]
                    "Put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him)."

                      What the Prophet :saw: knew

                      The Prophet ﷺ and his companions knew something that is not often displayed today. They were able to face difficulty with a certain determination in their heart; they were grateful for even the seemingly small blessings; they took pleasure in praying at night while the people were asleep. What they knew was this: if they sought Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He) they would not be let down. This is the secret to the statement of Abu Bakr radiAllah `anhu (ra) to the Prophet ﷺ during the battle of Badr, when the Prophet ﷺ was crying out to Allah (swt) in an impassioned du`a And He did- the battle was won by the Muslims.

                      Human desires are insatiable. And for this reason, the more we chase after the dunya (physical world), the less we are satisfied. If we chase after the love of a human being, especially in ways that are not halal
                      13:28)

                      We may have heard this verse a hundred times before. However, the one thing that we must know is that if we truly want that comfort in the heart, it must be through seeking Him.

                      To be more specific, what is meant here is not that we shouldn't seek to be successful in the dunyaway in which we do it. Look at the Prophet ﷺ. He could have compromised his principles when Quraysh offered him power, wealth and women for him to tone down his message. They even tried to negotiate a power-sharing agreement whereby the other gods would be worshiped on some days and the One would be worshiped on others. Declining these offers caused the Prophet ﷺ physical hardship, but he was at rest in his heart. Why? Because he knew that ultimately to seek dunya for the sake of dunya was not the goal, no matter how tempting it might be. He knew that whatever he gave up was temporary, because the real comfort in this world is with Allah. And he was not let down.

                      and will give us something.

                      Therefore, as we near the end of this section of things to know in seeking tranquility of the heart, let us take the Prophet ﷺ as the example we should aspire to. He knew
                      ...And he who fears Allah - He will make for him a way out. [65:3]
                      "Put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him)."

                          This made me cry subhanAllah.

                          It's true. Allah swt does mend broken hearts Alhumdollilah. And makes it stronger than it was. And then causes it to break again and slowly bit by bit strips the soul from all its distractions, so the heart knows, focuses on and loves Allah swt the most.

                          But a part of this, is that the slave takes his broken heart and empties it of everything except Allah swt. Our hearts only break because we fill them with love of ephemeral things. In loving the Eternal there is no heart break, only contentment and peace

                          If Allah swt created the heart, subhanAllah it is not difficult for him to mend every scar, erase every hurt and replace every tear with waves of his mercy.

                          Alhumdollilah.
