The Book of Heart Softeners

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “In the body there is a piece of flesh: if it is sound the whole body will be sound and if it is corrupt then the whole body will be corrupt”.

Al-Haafidh ibn Hajr al-Asqalaanee said, “The heart has been singled out because it is the leader of the body, and through the purification of the leader the subjects become purified, and with his corruption they become corrupted”.

This course seeks to soften the hearts through reminding its readers about the akhirah – its rewards and punishments, the merits of particular qualities of the heart, and how one should view and live life.

The course is based on the well-known collection of ahadeeth, Saheeh al-Bukhaaree, compiled by Imaam Bukhaaree (d. 256H). The book of Ar-Riqaaq deals with the hadeeth that makes the heart soft by affecting the emotions and feelings of the one who hears it.

– Why is it important to use our time well when we are free and healthy?
