@oliviahmagazine On purifying the heart:
Medical studies have proved that your feelings are what generate your thoughts, and in turn your thoughts determine your behaviour and perception. The condition of your heart determines the status of your feelings, it truly is the source of all reason: “So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts.“Quran | 22:46

“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.”

Surah Al-Baqarah [2:216] Al-Qur'an al-Kareem

O God,

You are my only trust
in every calamity,

You are my only hope 
in every hardship.

You are the only promise 
in anxiety and distress; 

in which the hearts become weak
and human actions become feeble,

in which one is deserted
and forsaken
by his friends.

يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ أَنْ يُخَفِّفَ عَنْكُمْ ۚ وَخُلِقَ الْإِنْسَانُ ضَعِيفًا

And Allah wants to lighten for you [your difficulties]; and mankind was created weak

Surah 4. An-Nisaa, Ayah 28

How beautiful is Allah's mercy.

When the slave disobeys, he is given many chances to repent.

And when the slave obeys, he is rewarded.

Truly it is a win-win, only for those who have faith in the mercy of Allah (glorified be His name)
