Purification of hearts

*****************************

Purification is not purifying organs by water but it is total purification of the heart from all diseases, God blames such ill people and says about them in Qur’an:

2-10: “In their hearts is a disease; and Allah has increased their disease,”

There is purification for prayers and there is purification for connection to God. The purification of connection to God is the purification of the heart from everything but Him. A believer should purify the heart from all kinds of rancor, envy, spite, hatred, egoism, selfishness and all different types of sins and bad descriptions.

There are different types of sins, there are Satanic sins, there are animal sins, there are omnipotent sins and there are predatory sins.

Animal sins: They are those in which man looks like animals, like adultery, sodomy and similar sins.

Satanic sins: Like lies, tricks, temptation, backbiting, calumny and similar sins.

Predatory sins: Like arrogance by force, boasting by family, assaulting people either by words or by hand or by wealth.

The worst amongst them are Omnipotent sins: They are those in which man participates God in His special names like being haughty and arrogant with people and never be humble with the poor and the needy amongst people.

God says in His sacred Hadith:

“Arrogance and Glory are My clothing, whoever contends Me one of them, I will through him in Hellfire.”[1]

Imam Abul-Aza’em said:

“Whoever has an atom of arrogance and rancor in his heart, he will never taste (nearness to God).”

Man need to purify himself from all these descriptions and deeds. He should purify the heart then purify the secret from all other things so that there is only God The Almighty and The Forgiver. He should also purify the spirit even from counting on God’s grants or endowments.

I.e. if God grants him and he relied on these grants, then he is lost, because he will see that he deserves these grants, he wants people to praise him and follow him due to these grants, he forgets that these grants are from God Al-Fattah. God can keep His grants; He can increase them and adorns him if He wills.

Then, purification here is not only the purification of apparent body, but it is purification of apparent and hidden facts, this is what God wants, so He said about those people who purify themselves as God wants:

9-108: “In it (mosque) there are men who love to be purified; and God loves those who make themselves pure.”

We beg God to help us follow and fulfill what we heard, make us among those who listen to words and follow the best of what they listen to, grant us His satisfaction, remove all desires He doesn’t like from us, make all our movements, stillness, thoughts and our intentions match the book of God (Qur’an) and make us seek God’s satisfaction by them. We also supplicate Him to make us always remembering and seeking Him in this life and in the hereafter, and make us follow His beloved and chosen prophet (Mohammed).
