Youthful Reflections on Faith

The Heart

The Heart (Photo credit: petalouda62)

”The hearts of those who believe find rest in the remembrance of Allah,

Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest”. (Q13:28)

It seeks

And soaks in

It craves

And evokes

It retains

But reflects

Sometimes pure

And very healthy

It loves

And begrudges

It reassures

Then disappoints

Its tender

Yet muscular

Carrying secrets

Close to bursting

It plots

And forgives

It fuels

And also calms

It guides

And misguides

Other times corrupt

And not so healthy

Warm feelings emerge

Dark thoughts dwell

A package of flesh

Vessel of fluids

Pumping in rhythm

With a perfect pattern

A whirlwind

Of emotions

Alive with desires

Full of inclinations

Fostering trust

And faithful submission

Fashioned intricately

By the Best of Fashioner,

The Bestower of Forms (Al-Musawwir)

Indeed there is a piece of flesh in the body which if it is good, then the whole body is good, but if it is corrupt then the whole body is corrupt. Indeed it is the heart. (Bukhari)
