Service your Heart

In this world, we possess appliances, machines, cars, buildings … These material possessions that we own, require maintenance and a service regularly to function optimally. If we do not repair those deficiencies that are found in them, they will become dilapidated and lose value.

Likewise, the spiritual hearts that we possess, require maintenance. For the efficient functioning of our spiritual heart, we are required to service and oil our hearts regularly …

How do we service this Soul of ours?

By making the Zikr of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … When we recite the Zikr of Allah, then we are not depriving our spiritual heart of its nourishment and it’s regular service … If we do not maintain this spiritual heart, we will go into a spiritual ebb (a spiritual low) … Heedlessness enters our heart and we become negligent and lazy. Not being conscious of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala eventually leads to the death of the spiritual heart … We should seclude ourselves every single day for a few minutes and make Muraqabah (meditation) and the Zikr of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala
