The body and heart are pure and blameless in themselves.However, when our heart becomes embodied with worldly temptations, we tend to forget the nature of our hearts. Thus, we become attached to this world and develop spiritual diseases such as greed, lust and pride.These spiritual diseases show us the ugly attributes of the heart like thorns growing in a field.In order to beautify yourselves, avoid these attributes and implement finer qualities which will bring you closer to Allah Ta’ala such as kind heartedness, humbleness and gratitide.Every person yearns for a meaning to life and for that which will make his heart sound.The only way to do this is to purify one’s self.
[Taken from: Tasawwuf in Brief, Shaykh Muhammad Imran]
