A Clean Heart


Imagine having a white bed sheet that is soiled with oil, blotted with ink and stained with paint ... will we ever think of sleeping on such a sheet? The answer is a definite “NO!” Then, how is it ever possible to sleep with a heart smudged with hatred, burning in anger, drowned in jealousy? It is as simple as forgiving, overlooking and cleaning our hearts of all evil at all times. We cannot afford to leave this world with a heart that is filled with dirt. Having a clean heart invites peace, happiness and contentment in our lives. It is only a clean heart that will allow the mercy, love and bond with Allah Ta‘ala to be established and strengthened. Death may come to us at any time. Let us strive to leave this world and meet our Allah Ta‘ala with a heart that is clean and pure.
