Allah ﷻ says:
*اَلَمْ نَجْعَلْ لَّهُ عَينَين*
How we not given him two eyes?
*وَ لِسَانًا وَّ شَفَتَينٍ*
A tongue and two lips?
Contemplate over this great blessing from Allah ﷻ, of the eyes, the lips and the tongue!
Can you imagine what a struggle it would be, to go to just the masjid, a task we often take for granted evidently by our lack of attendance.
Then Imagine if we were distressed but we had no tongue to speak with, to call for assistance with!
As Allah ﷻ says
*قُتِلَ الْاِنْسَانُ مَا اَكْفَرَه*
Surely man is ungrateful!
We forget the N’ima of Allah ﷻ can be taken from us!
Imam Ibn Al Qayyim رحمه الله said “How Ungrateful is man that when he sins, he must use the blessings that Allah has given him”
Moisten your eyes and restrict them to looking at that which builds Iman and Taqwa such as the kalaam of Allah, Ahadith, Kutub Al ‘Ilm, rather than looking at and speaking of that which destroys it.
We must thank Allah through direct Shukr and worship and obedience to Allah ﷻ, while staying away from what displeases Him ﷻ.
One needs to contemplate over the heart.
Just like without oxygen the physical heart is dead, without Islam and remembrance of Allah, the spiritual heart is dead too!
Imagine, the Ni’ma of your oxygen supply cut off while you sinned in private and you died!
How disgraced would you be, that Allah ﷻ himself exposed you to everyone!
And as Allah ﷻ says regarding the spiritual heart
*يَوْمَ لاَ يَنفَعُ مَالٌ وَلاَ بَنُونَ*
The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail.
Meaning, a man’s wealth will not protect him from the punishment of Allah, even if he were to pay a ransom equivalent to an earthful of gold.
*إِلاَّ مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ*
Except Him who brings to Allah a sound heart.
Sa`id bin Al-Musayyib said, “The clean heart is the sound heart.”
This is the heart of the believer, for the heart of the disbeliever and the hypocrite is sick
Ibn Abi Mulaykah said that he met 30 Sahaba, and every one feared Nifaaq (Hypocrisy) for himself!
Even Umar RA enquired regarding it
Let’s thank Allah ﷻ for all His blessing.
