What Type of Heart Do You Have?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَقُولُ آمَنَّا بِاللّهِ وَبِالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ وَمَا هُم بِمُؤْمِنِينَ – 2:8

يُخَادِعُونَ اللّهَ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَمَا يَخْدَعُونَ إِلاَّ أَنفُسَهُم وَمَا يَشْعُرُونَ – 2:9

فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ فَزَادَهُمُ اللّهُ مَرَضاً وَلَهُم عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْذِبُونَ – 2:10

“And of the people are some who say, “We believe in Allah and the Last Day,” but they are not believers.
They [think to deceive] Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not.
In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.”
[Al-Qur’an – Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – 2:8-10]

Solution for the Diseased Heart:

الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللّهِ أَلاَ بِذِكْرِ اللّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ – 13:28

“Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah . Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.”
[Al-Qur’an – Surat Ar-Ra`d (The Thunder) –  13:28]

Dua for Removing Hypocrisy

Allahumma tahhir qalbi min an-nifaq, wa ‘amali min ar-riya’, wa lisani min al-kadhib, wa ‘ayni min al-khiyana. Fa innaka ta‘lamu khainata’l a‘yun, wa ma tukhfis-sudur

(O Allah! Purify my heart of hypocrisy, and my deeds from showing off, and my tongue from lying, and my eyes from betraying trust (looking at the forbidden). For indeed, You know what the eyes betray, and what is hidden deep in the breasts) -Baihiqi
