If one’s feet slip, it can be extremely dangerous. One could lose one’s balance and fall. It could result in fractured bones, and perhaps even a heart attack. Undoubtedly these are serious consequences. However, these effects of the slip of the feet can never compare to the harm that can ensue from the slip of the tongue. It can result in several people suffering a heart attack. When the tongue slips, it pierces hearts, breaks marriages, splits families, estranges bosom friends and results in a host of other social evils. The soft and fleshy tongue can cause a wound far worse than the wound of the hard teeth. As a poet says: “The wound of the sword will heal – but the wound of the tongue will not.”

Once Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was asked: “What is the path of salvation (from the fitnah that is engulfing us from all directions)?” He (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied: “Guard your tongue, let your house be sufficient for you and cry over your sins.” ( Sunan Tirmizi #2406)

Who is truly rich?

The answer to this question will vary from person to person. The most common answer is bound to be: “The one who has the most amount of money.” However, let us hear the answer from the leader of all mankind, from the one who was granted the most amount of knowledge by Allah Ta‘ala, from that heart which was blessed with direct divine guidance, from none other than Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “A person’s being rich is not dependent upon him owning much worldly possessions. Rather, being truly wealthy is to be rich in one’s heart.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #6446)

If one is “rich in his heart” by being content with whatever Allah Ta‘ala has blessed him with, irrespective of the amount, he is truly rich. On the other hand, if a millionaire is hankering after the “next valley of gold,” he is indeed poverty stricken.

A Clean Heart

Imagine having a white bed sheet that is soiled with oil, blotted with ink and stained with paint... will we ever think of sleeping on such a sheet? The answer is definitely “NO!” Then, how is it ever possible to sleep with a heart smudged with hatred, burning in anger, drowning in jealousy?

Having a clean heart invites peace, happiness and contentment in our lives. It is only a clean heart that will allow the mercy, love and bond with Allah Ta‘ala to be established and strengthened.

We cannot afford to leave this world with a heart that is filled with dirt. It is as simple as forgiving, overlooking and cleaning our hearts of all evil at all times. Death may come to us at any time. Hence, we need to strive to leave this world and meet our Allah Ta‘ala with a heart that is clean and pure.

(Four Surahs’ Series – Part Four)

Surah Waaqi‘ah is the 56th surah of the Quraan Majeed and can be found in the 27th juz (para), immediately after Surah Rahmaan.

The special virtue and benefit of Surah Waaqi‘ah is that the one who recites it every night will be saved from poverty. (Shu‘abul Imaan #2267)

On the occasion when Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) lay on his deathbed and was approaching his final moments, Sayyiduna ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was the khaleefah at the time, came to visit him.

(Four Surahs’ Series – Part Three)

Surah Sajdah is the 32nd surah of the Quraan Majeed and can be found in the 21st juz (para). As with Surah Mulk (Tabaarak), it has been reported that it was the blessed practice of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to recite Surah Sajdah every night. (Sunan Tirmizi #2892)

The special virtue and benefit of reciting Surah Sajdah every night is that it will protect the one who recites it from the punishment of the grave.

Khaalid bin Ma’daan (rahimahullah), a Taabi‘ee, mentioned the following:
