An Enlightened Heart

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) asked Harith ibne Malik (radi Allahu anhu): “How are you, O Harith ibne Malik?”
Harith (radi Allahu anhu) replied: “By the grace of Allah, I am a Mu’min (in a state of Emaan).”
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) asked: “A true Mu’min?”
Harith (radi Allahu anhu) replied: “A true Mu’min.”
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “For every truth, there is a reality. So what is the reality of the truth of that (which you claim)?”
Harith (radi Allahu anhu) replied: “I have turned myself away from the world, and passed my nights awake (in worship) and passed my days in thirst (fasting). It is as if I am seeing the Arsh (Throne) of my Rubb (Sustainer) when it shall be brought, and it is as though I am seeing the people of Paradise visiting one another therein, and it is as if I am hearing the howling of the people of the Fire!”
At that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “(Harith is such) a Mu’min whose heart has been enlightened.” [Musannaf Abdur Razzaq]

This is what an enlightened person is like; someone who believes in the Hereafter as though he is seeing it with his own eyes, and acts accordingly!

If you strive to achieve this state of Eeman, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will undoubtedly bless you with it too.Aameen Ya Rabb
