Let Your Heart Live

Standard

By Umm Luqman {a deensister}

Bismillahir-Rahmaanir-Raheem
“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered”(Anfaal:24).

This ayah, I love. ”..when he calls you to that which gives you life’…is a survival tip we all need. I mean, we all know death..but what if we are dying without even knowing? Dying from the inside, slowly, steadily…sadly.
So, the tip is response, ‘we hear and we obey’. We respond by doing as we are told. So let Him intervene between you and your heart which is unavoidably inclined to evil (as stated in the Qur’aan;12:53), and that which kills it. Let the only One who knows what is best for it take care of it. Be flexible, open-minded, a free-spirit, let your heart LIVE.
