  • Curing the hardness of the heart

    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته


    A man said to al-Hasan al-Basri:

    “O Abu Sa’eed, I am complaining to you of the hardness of my heart."

    He said: “Soften it with dhikr. The more forgetful the heart is, the harder it becomes, but if a person remembers Allah , the hardness softens as copper melts in the fire. Nothing can soften the hardness of the heart like the remembrance of Allah , may He be glorified and exalted. Dhikr is healing and medicine for the heart. Forgetfulness is a disease, the cure for which is remembrance of Allah ."

    [Al-Wabil as-Sayyib, Ibn al-Jawzi, 142]
    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: ‘Read, and ascend, and recite as you used to recite in the [previous] world, for your status will be according to the last verse that you recite.’” [At-Tirmidhi (2914) and Abu Dawood (1464)]

      Assalamu alaykum sister,

      Do you think Quran recitation counts as dhikr....or like is it just another form of ibadah seperate from dhikr?
      Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

        "Let the days do as they please
        And be optimistic when destiny decrees
        Do not despair due to the events of the past
        For the events of this world were not meant to last"

        - Imam Shafi'i
