Allah Resides in Broken Hearts.


Divina narrative: (hadith)

I am with those whose hearts are broken for my sake. (At haf 6/290).

The heart of a man receives shocks in many ways, eg anxieties, troubles, accidents, casualties thus the heart is broken, but why? Just to make it a target for Allahs mercy andbounty.

Dr Iqbal Poem:

The heart is like a mirror. Do not prevent it from being broken. It’s  breakage is more dearer in the sight of its maker (i.e Allah), than its safety. Almighty Allah being indeed the maker.

Dr Abdul Hayi Sahab used to say when Allah breaks the heart of any of His servants He desires to lift them to greater heights. These shocks, anxieties and sorrows which come to men are forced exertions in deen (faith) by which the servants progress in leaps and bounds to higher degrees and this is not possibele in normal circumstances. He used to recite a couplet:

“The potter threw down the pot to break it saying that afer breaking it he would reshape it (in a better form).

“The moon like beloved ones take up their residencein deserted houses, They reside in the hearts of those who they ruin.”

The devine light penetrates into the broken hearts, so do not be afraid of occasions of sorrow andshocks. If you truly and firmly believe in Allah hen this broken heart, these rising sighs and these tears will take you to greater heights of spiritual achievement.

“the Vally e of love is too far off, but some time a hundred years long journey is covered with one sigh, in the twinkling of an eye. Man should not therefore, get dejected and disappointed with these shocks and anxieties.”

Spiritual discourse By Mufti Taqi Uthmani

  6. Assalaamu ‘alaikum dear brother,

    May Allah Subhanahu wa ta’aala reward you greatly for your efforts.

    If its possible, can you kindly provide me with the original text (in the original language) of the stanza of Dr. Iqbal’s poem that you quoted?

    “The heart is like a mirror.
    Do not prevent it from being broken.
    It’s breakage is more dearer in the sight of its maker (i.e Allah),
    than its safety.
    Almighty Allah being indeed the maker.”

    JazakAllahu Khyrul jazaa
