The Heart is the Plantation of the Hereafter


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, as recorded in Fath ar-Rabbani, “The heart is the plantation for the Hereafter.  Sow the seeds of faith in your heart.  Irrigate, fertilise, and mature it with regular good deeds.  If there is kindness, and energy, in the heart, it will be fertile, and abundant harvests will result . Should the heart be harsh, and contemptuous, the soul becomes infertile, barren, and no crop will be able to grow.  Learn this art of farming by its experts, the awliya’ullah.  Do not think your opinion to be sufficient.  Our Prophet (s.a.w.) said, ‘Seek help in every field, from an expert in that field.’”
