What Are the Signs of a Responsive Heart and Unresponsive Heart? Shaykh Uthaymīn

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Uthaymīn was asked:

What are the signs of a responsive heart? And the signs of an unresponsive heart?

Shaykh Uthaymīn:
A sign of a responsive heart, is that it humbles itself to the remembrance of Allāh.

And the sign of an unresponsive heart is that it is not affected by what it hears, from the verses of Allah.

Seek Protection from Diseases of the Body and Heart – Shaykh al-Uthaymīn

Seek Protection from Diseases of the Body and Heart – Shaykh al-Uthaymīn

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Sālih al-Uthaymīn (رحمه الله) in explanation of the Dua of Qunūt, mentions a tremendous benefit relating to diseases.

He said, that when supplicating for health and wellbeing the Muslim should bring to mind the diseases of the body and diseases of the heart (those which affect your religion). This is because diseases of the heart are more severe and harmful than the diseases of the body.

He (رحمه الله) continues to say:

The diseases of the body (and their harms) are well known, however the diseases of the heart (are often overlooked and they) are of two types:

The first disease is the Shahawāt and its origins are whims and lusts. (Meaning) a person knows the truth, however he doesn’t want to follow it due to his desires and whims being in opposition to that which the Prophet (عليه السلام) came with.

The second disease is the disease of shubuhāt (i.e. beliefs, ideas, thoughts that are made to resemble the truth but are falsehood in reality), and its origin is ignorance, because the ignoramus acts upon falsehood whilst thinking thaf it is the truth. And this is an extremely dangerous sickness.

The Shaykh continues to advise that we should supplicate to Allāh and ask that he gives us health, wellbeing and protection from (both) diseases of the body and diseases of the heart; which are the (aforementioned) doubts and desires.

Signs of a Sound Heart and a Sick Heart – Shaykh Rabī

 

‎إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ
Except him who brings to Allāh a clean heart [clean from Shirk (polytheism) and Nifāq (hypocrisy)]. Ash-Shu’ara:89

Shaykh Rabī ibn Hādi Al-Madkhalī (hafidahullāh):

Ponder, is your heart sound?

What is the sound heart?

The sound heart is that which fights Shirk and rejects falsehood, it accepts the truth and refutes falsehood with all its might, this is the sound heart. So, if you notice that you accept the truth from whoever brings it to you (you accept the truth; the truth guides you and your goal is the truth) then by Allāh your heart and intellect is sound.

What is the sick heart?

And, if you realise that you reject the truth when it comes to you from a certain direction, and you accept falsehood when it comes from another direction and you behave as if it is the truth; then know that your heart is sick.

[9/9] Remedying the heavy and tight chest – Ibn Al-Qayyim

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ibn Al-Qayyim – rahimahu Allah – said:

Likewise, from among them [i.e. the causes that alleviate the chest] is leaving off excessive looking, speech, listening, eating and sleep. For indeed too much of these turns into pain, sadness and grief within the heart. They confine it, constrain it and cause it to become tightened. It [i.e. the heart] agonizes because of them, in fact the vast majority of agonies in this world and the next are due to them.

So la ilaa-ha illa Allah! How constrained is the chest of he who took an active part in every affliction from these affliction! How bitter is his life! How bad is his condition! How severe is the heaviness of his heart.

Likewise, laa ilaa-ha illa Allah! How blissful is the life of he who took an active part in [attaining] every characteristic from those praiseworthy characteristics. His efforts would revolve around them, being committed to them.

Therefore, this person will have an abundant portion of what is mentioned in the statement of Allah – The Most High:

﴿إنَّ الأَبْرَارَ لَفِى نَعِيم﴾ [الانفطار: 13]

Indeed the righteous shall surely be in bliss [Al-Infitaar: 13]

Whereas the former person [i.e. the wretched one] will have an abundant portion of what is mentioned in the statement of Allah – The Most High:

﴿وإنَّ الفُجَّارَ لَفِى جَحِيمٍ﴾ [الانفطار: 14]

And indeed the sinners shall surely be in the Hellfire [Al-Infitaar: 14]

The point of all this is that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ was the most perfect of creation in respect to every characteristic by which relaxation of the chest, lightheartedness, delight of the eye and life of the soul can be attained.

Therefore, he is the most perfect of creation in relation to this relaxation, life and delight of the eye alongside what he has been specified with of perceivable relaxation.

He is the most perfect of creation in respect to being followed. The most perfect in relaxation, joy and delight of the eye, and in accordance to the degree that he [i.e. The Messenger] is followed, does the slave attain whatever he actually ends up attaining of relaxation of the heart, delight of the eye and joy of the soul.

Therefore he ﷺ is at the peak of perfection in relation to relaxation of the chest, elevation of rank and pardoning of sin. And his followers have such a portion of that that is proportionate to the degree that they follow him. And Allah is the one from whom aid is sought.

Similarly, his followers have such a portion of protection from Allah for them, safeguarding them, defending them, strengthening them and aiding them that is proportionate to the degree of their following [The Messenger]. [So among them is] the one who gives it little care, and [among them] is he who gives it a great deal of importance.

Therefore, whosoever ends up finding goodness let him praise Allah. And whosoever ends up finding other than that, then he can blame none but himself.

[8/9] Remedying the heavy and tight chest – Ibn Al-Qayyim

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ibn Al-Qayyim – rahimahu Allah – said:

Likewise, from among them [i.e. the causes that alleviate the chest], indeed from the greatest of them is removing contaminations of the heart; the blameworthy characteristics that bring about it’s [i.e. the chest’s] tightness and agony, hindering it from recuperating.

For indeed if a person adopts the avenues that [are intended to] alleviate his chest without actually removing those blameworthy characteristics from his heart, then his attempt at alleviating his chest will be useless.

The end result of the person, is that he has two opposing elements that are repeatedly affecting his heart, he belonging to the predominant element of the two.
