The 3 Signs of ‘Sharhus Sadr’ ~ Opening of the Heart, to be able to Perceive, Understand and Accept the Truth

April 17, 2013



Hazrat Ibn Mas’ood (Radiallahu Anhu) narrates
that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) recited the following Aayat :


فَمَن يُرِدِ ٱللَّهُ أَن يَهْدِيَهُۥ يَشْرَحْ صَدْرَهُۥ لِلْإِسْلَٰمِ

Those whom Allah (in His plan) willeth to guide,- He openeth their breast to Islam ~ Surah Al-‘An`am 6:125
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) then said:
“When Noor enters the breast, it (the breast) expands.” Someone asked: “O Rasulullah! Is there a sign for this?” Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Yes. He saves himself from this abode of deception (the world); he inclines towards the everlasting abode (AKHIRAH) and he makes preparations for the everlasting abode before the arrival of death. ‘ (Baihaqi)


The 3 Signs of Sharhus Sadr :

When Noor is thrust into a persons heart; his spiritual heart expands, to take in the Light of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta`ala. Three signs indicate that a person is receiving such Noor and is being guided by Allah >

1. To detach oneself and remain aloof from this deceptive world…

Do not become beguiled by the love of this world and its short-lived promises.

2. To show a longing and a yearning for the perpetual abode of Aakhirat.

3. Preparing for Maut (death) before it comes…

The person who suppresses his desires and he prepares for the hereafter is intelligent and the person who disobeys Allah and follows his desires is a fool.
