Spiritual Advices | Tazkiyah | Purification of the Soul |Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah is a Polish for the Heart

How does one obtain a pure heart?

To obtain a pure heart, adhere to the following advise of Hadhrat Umar Radhiallaahu Anhu : Abstain from speaking about people (backbiting, slandering, etc.) because it is a sickness … and engage in the remembrance of Allah Ta’ala because it is a cure.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar Radhiallaahu Anhum reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said: Indeed the hearts rust just as iron does.

The Sahabah Radiyallahu’anhum asked: “What is its polish?”

Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam replied: “Frequent recitation of the Qur’aan and Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah”

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 1859 and Musnad Shihab, Hadith: 1179)
