Sickness of the Heart

Heart the most functional part of the human body. Whether its a body part, but its ever declared as responsible for our good or evil deeds. The sickness of the Heart is our misdeeds. Whenever we do some sin or transgression, spirit comes from our inside, and we feel uncomfortable. To satisfy our Heart, we need to purify the Heart from all evil deeds. So we need a Change of Heart. If we sin against people, then restitution is required. It happens that when we indulge in the world, we make many mistakes and misdeeds over and over. Our Heart becomes polluted, and life becomes miserable.

We must detect that what’s going wrong in our lives, and we need correction. It’s okay if we feel fearful, guilty, or anxious or confess our sin, but it’s not enough. If we sin, it is a direct matter between a person and his Creator, and no intermission involves. So we have to change our-self and learn to seek repentance of our sin from Almighty Allah. Indeed He is most Magnificent most Merciful.

Sickness of the Heart and Treatments:

1. We Accept Allah but why not fulfill his command

We accept Allah and his command, and we believe in his existence that he creates everything in-universe. But due to weakness of faith, we don,t fulfil his command. We don,t obey his order completely. We are living with our likes and dislikes, which goes against his rule. Until a person is not fulfilling the command of Allah, he will not be forgiven. So we need here some treatment to change our priorities so that our complete life become faithful.

Command of Allah: Sickness of the Heart

Indeed, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds.


2. We claim that we love Prophets Muhammad PBUH but don,t follow his Sunnah

Being Ummati, we claim to love with our benefactor Prophet Muhammad SAW, but we don,t follow his life. We never do such acts that he does in his life. His sunnah just remains in books, only not in our lives. So for the betterment of this world and day of judgment, we need to study his sunnah and practice in our daily life.

love prophet and obey sunnah :Sickness of the Heart

Say, “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”


3. Read the Quran only but don’t Understand to act

A significant mistake is that we read the Quran only and don’t read Quran with translation and Tafseer to practice. The Quran is the book of Allah and is guidance for humanity. It’s a Complete Book from where everyone can get a lesson. It covers every aspect of life. Muslims around the world badly needed to understand the holy book and practice the saying in their live. So this is the only way to succeed.

Read Quran and understand :Sickness of the Heart

And this is a Book [Quran] We have revealed [which is] blessed, so follow it and fear Allah that you may receive mercy.


4. Allah Grant Us Everything but we do not Grateful to Him

Almighty Allah, he created everything in the universe as he created humans most perfectly and beautifully. Magnificent Lord grants us uncountable bounties and gifts. So Allah Almighty is most deserving of thanks and praise. Allah has ordered us to be grateful to Him for those favors, and not to deny them. But we don’t obey him and only enjoy his blessings. We need to overcome this sickness of our hearts and praise him as he ordered.

Give thanks to Allah : Sickness of the Heart

And [remember] when your Lord declared, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you refuse, indeed, My punishment is severe.’


5. We Know Shaytan is our Enemy but we Follow him

This point is a very worst flaw of our hearts that we pleased Shaytan by doing evil deeds. He wants us to throw in hellfire, but we keep following him. Shaytan is an enemy of humanity and keeps struggling to raise evil. Many misdeeds we do without thinking that it tricks of Shaytan to distract us from the right path. So A battle against Shaytan is required to save our faith.

Shaytan is our enemy : Sickness of the Heart

Surely, Shaytan is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be amongst the companions of the Blaze.


6.We all Want Paradise but do Evil

The most common sickness of the heart is our evil deeds. We are willing to get high rank in Jannah buts doing evil days and nights. Paradise/Heaven is a place in the hereafter which is decorated with numerous blessings and which believers will live eternally/ever after. Allah promise heaven for his pious people only. But if we are involved in sins and not obeying Allah almighty, then how we can deserve Paradise. We need to change our-self to get success on the day of judgment. Otherwise, unfortunately, we have to face the worst fire. In Quran Allah narrates supplication of Hazrat Asia(RA), ow beautifully She asks Allah for Jannah:

Paradise/Heaven is a place in the hereafter : Sickness of the Heart

And Allah presents an example of those who believed: the spouse of Pharaoh, when she said, “My Lord, build for me near You home in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his actions and save me from the wrongdoing people.


7.We Want Rescue from Hell Fire but donot Try

Hellfire/Dozakh is a place of torment, pain, and suffering where non-believers will stay ever. Where sinful believers will be given punishment and will stay temporarily as per their sins, it is the worst life after death. No doubt hellfire is very horrible, and no one wants to go in it. We ever seek protection from hell as we afraid too much. Hellfire or Jahanum is meant for disbelievers and evildoers. We have to lefts all sins and obey Allah and Prophet PBUH to get protection from hellfire.

Protect from hellfire : Sickness of the Heart

O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your own families from a Fire whose fuel is humankind and stones, over which are harsh, strict Angels, who do not disobey Allah in whatever He commands them and who perform whatever they are directed to.


8.We believe that every living-thing will Die but we donot prepare for it

Due to the severe sickness of the heart, we forget death. Every living thing in this world has to die one day. Being Muslim, we believe in the termination of life. After this world, there will be another permanent life. Death is although a bitter truth, but no one can deny it. Allah almighty promises that the end has to come in time anywhere in any condition. No one can be safe from it. Unfortunately, we forget it by indulging in these mortal luxuries of the world. We need to do proper preparation for death so that we succeed in the afterworld.

Every soul will taste death.


9.We Criticize other flaws always without self analysis

Nowadays, people always keep their eyes on the weakness of others. We keep leg-pulling, backbiting, and criticizing others. We spent our specious time doing such sins. This sickness of the heart directs us to failure in this world as well as ruining our next world. Criticizing is an ill manner, and it leads to failure. We need to change this bad habit. So we should do self-analysis and correct our misdeeds. One can never get success until his intentions are not right. So we must take care of other feelings and comforts. May Allah make us well-wisher of others.

O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [other] people; perhaps they may be better than them, nor let women ridicule [another] women; probably they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after faith. And whoever does not regret – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.


10. People are dying daily but we don’t take lesson from it

We see people die and disappear from our site every day, but we don’t think about what’s happening. Many of our relatives and friends left this world in a couple of years. People come here to die. One day we have to go as well. We see this. We hear this, some time also feels separation, and often become sorrowful also. But after all these victims, we forget death. Start doing the same evils and stop scaring death. Carelessness is too bad and not in our favour. We need to learn from day to day life and accept the bitter truth of death. So we should change our hearts and turn towards Allah.

dying of people is lesson

Wherever you may be, death will reach you, even if you should be inside towers of lofty construction.


In the end, we pray to Allah most merciful most magnificent that he turns our heart so that we become pious Muslims. We are careless and doing lots of misdeeds. Oh, Allah helps us and guides us on the right path of your beloved Prophets Muhammad SAW. Ameen
