Distress, anxiety, joys, fears, worries and happiness: different facets that make up this mesmerizing sojourn called “life”. It might fascinate you with its unknown twists and turns. There are moments where you relish the joys and happiness with every breath you take. And then, there are moments when the human soul, weak in its creation but as mighty as it thinks of itself, tries to shred realities and instead, buries itself into worldly deceptions.

With the pressures of Dunya that strangle us both physically and emotionally, our minds tend to lose focus and our hearts cringe with disappointments and pain. Beyond all of this, our souls end up forgetting their very purpose of existence: To worship our Creator.

In this article, let us undertake a journey that would help us free our hearts from worries and comfort our souls. Let us perform tiny little acts that could weigh heavy on our scale of good deeds, helping us have an Eman high, In-sha-Allah.

Cleanse Your Heart

The sins we commit, no matter how big or small they might seem, darken our hearts gradually, making it rotten on the inside. In order to place ourselves completely under Allah servitude and refresh our Eman, we need to cleanse our hearts, making it pure from the stenches of sins that have been committed. Here are small little steps, which you could implement to commence the process of cleansing, In-sha-Allah:

1. Begin with Repentance

A heartfelt, sincere repentance begging for forgiveness and mercy never goes unnoticed. Allah is the most Merciful of all, therefore, acknowledge the fact that you have committed sins and ask Him to bless you with His mercy and forgiveness. Do it now!

A heartfelt, sincere repentance begging for forgiveness and mercy never goes unnoticed.
