Hardness of the heart

Islahi Majlis Summary 30 September 2019 Hadhrat Maulana Adam Sahib Hafizahullah ‎عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَجُلًا شَكَا إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَسْوَةَ قَلْبِهِ فَقَالَ امْسَحْ رَأْسَ الْيَتِيمِ و أَطْعِمْ الْمِسْكِينَ Abu Huraira reported: A man came to the Messenger of Allah ‎ﷺ, and he complained about the hardness of his heart. The Prophet ‎ﷺ said, “pat the head of the orphan and feed the poor” The hardness of the heart it also an illness. Sometimes we take care of other illnesses of the heart that people can see for example looking at the opposite gender, gheebah, doing buhtan etc. These are big sins too. What about our inner sins that no one knows of. Sometimes these are worse. In some ahadeeth it has been narrated that the fardh and nawafil of a person isn’t accepted until he is clear of these sins. The result of gheebah is so bad that the one whose gheebah we have done, their sins are on our head. If we feel jealously for someone then we should send them a gift and make good dua for them. Slowly slowly the jealously will go. If we do gheebah our salah and nawafil aren’t even accepted. It has been narrated about fasting that Allah ‎ﷻ doesn’t want your hunger when you are backbiting about others. When a persons mind is on the straight path, they will not do gheebah of anyone even an animal. Even pride is a such a bad illness. Hadhrat has spent a lot of time with hadhrat Yusuf Motala sahib ra, he had so many different projects around the world but was so humble. If someone would praise him he would change the subject straight away. Once Hadhrat went to a shop with Hadhrat Yusuf Motala Sahib ra. The shop keeper was from Gujrat. Hadhrat talked to the shop keeper in such a way that it wasn’t even evident who he was. Then Hadhrat ra mentioned that this is how the heart is cleansed. To remove the hardness of the heart, put your hand on the head of an orphan. Whether the orphan is muslim or not. In another hadith it has been narrated that another way to remove the hardness of the heart is to be patient. If someone does something wrong to you then think it may be your fault and never bring a thought in your mind of how to repay them. Hadhrat Thanwi ra had someone who worked for him. He would clean and wash dishes etc. Once the worker told him, “fear Allah”. If someone told us that we would become annoyed. The people told the worker to ask for forgiveness from Hadhrat Thanwi ra saying he is a great pious person. So the worker went and asked for him forgiveness. Then Hadhrat Thanwi ra said to him ‘why are you asking for forgiveness? It was probably my fault’. Hakeemul Ummah Thanwi ra had some people who were against him. Even though he was so great there were people trying to harm him. Even the prophet ‎ﷺ had people against him. So the person wrote a letter to him saying hurtful things. He also mentioned ‘you are a donkey’. This man then started losing his eyesight. The people around this man told him that it was due to his terrible letter to this great person that he had written and not received a reply. He then wrote to Hadhrat Thanwi ra saying due to the letter I sent you my eyesight is now going. Hadhrat replied saying that i don’t believe that I am not such a great person that this would happen to you due to me. The man then replied ‘please just forgive me’. Hadhrat Thanwi ra said if you want me to forgive you then I have but i don’t believe this is due to me. The hardness of the heart is something which is felt in this world and the hereafter
