Properties of a sick heart

Properties of a sick heart

a) A heart that is neglectful of God and is not worthy of guidance. “And let not your eyes pass beyond them, desiring adornments of the worldly life, and do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance and who follows his desire and whose affair is ever [in] neglect.” (Surah Kahf: 28)

b) A heart that looks for doubtful excuses and sedition. “As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them].” (Surah Aal e Imran: 7)

c) A heart that has been hardened. “So for their breaking of the covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard.” (Surah Ma’ida: 13)

d) A heart that has gathered rust. “No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning.” (Surah Mutafifin: 14)

e) A heart that has been sealed. “Rather, Allah has sealed them because of their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.” (Surah Nisa: 155)
