Causes that lead to a hardened heart #5

Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,

[Transcribed from “A commentary on Ibn Taymiyyah’s Essy on the Heart” translated by Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips]

5. Remembrance of Allah has no effect

39:22

“…Then woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah …” [39:22]

Those who, when reminded of Allah and His commands, turn away, and scoff at and scorn those who remind them, their hearts have become hardened to the remembrance of God. The various religious obligations were prescribed primarily to keep human beings conscious of Allah in order to help them make the right choices in life. Likewise, all acts of righteousness are forms of remembrance of Allah, as it is He who guided humans to them through His prophets and messengers.

      • yeah inshaAllah..they say one of the signs that you still have eemaan left in you is when you acknowledge that your not doing something right..when you acknowledge that you feel far away from Allah swt..so hopefully this is a sign that the heart is still alive n not dead!!

      • Masha’Allah true sis when you have eemaan, you will be able to differentiate between the wrong and right.. Jazakillah khayr for sharing 🙂 Anyway, miss you sis! 🙂
