#Self control towards the desires of the heart#
The correct heart that is secured from all desires that oppose the command of Allah and his prohibitions,and it is secure from all doubts that contradict what he informs.just as it is secure from worshiping anything else besides Allah and from seeking judgement from any person other than his messenger.
The dead heart,the opposite of the correct heart containing no life,neither knowing its lord nor worshipping him.
The heart that has some life but also has a defect.so it contains love of Allah,faith in him,sincerity and trust towards him from those things that are essential to it remaining alive…d love of vain desires and preference for them,despicable morals and manners from those things that cause its death…the life of the heart and its illumination is the cause of al l good to be found in it and its death and darkness is the cause of all evil to be found in it.
ALL OF THE DISEASES OF THE HEART ARE FOUNDED UPON DESIRES AND DOUBTS.THE ABANDONMENT OF SINS GIVES LIFE TO THE HEARTS.
