Purity of Heart
Updated: Sep 26, 2018
We travel over oceans and jungles to reach to the House of God and the Sacred Precinct, where the Prophets spoke, and their foot prints lie, but how are we not able to cross the oceans of our own desires and the jungles of our own inner selves to reach our hearts, those hearts that are the abode of God?
The Holy sanctuary is a place at which man glances and looks, whereas the heart is where God places His glance. So, I request you all to clean your hearts because God will only accept our prayers if our hearts and clean and pure from backbiting, jealousy, hatred and other bad qualities.
It is only due to this purity that things will leave an impression on us, otherwise the sayings of our beloved spiritual Master Muhammad (peace be upon Him) would only leave a temporary impact on our hearts and we will not be able to implement them in our practical lives. It will not reach the depths of our souls.
The beautiful messages of the noble saints will disappear somewhere in the dirt of our heart and will not positively influence us.
Continue your journey in this world, but do not drown in the World. Always forgive everyone and keep your heart clean before sleeping. Ask God for forgiveness of your sins and keep praying for purity of heart.
