An In-Depth Commentary On Ibn Taymiyyah's Treatise 'The Diseases Of The Heart And Their Cure'
Every Muslim lives with the conviction that Allah, the Most Merciful, sent His final Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhe Wassalam) as a mercy to all the worlds. Many a times, though, we conceptually limit that Prophetic mercy to merely the kind treatment of others. In reality, though, of the greatest manifestations of this divine mercy is the flawless revelation that fine-tuned much of what we innately know, or have come to know through empericism, about ourselves as human beings and how we can function.
The mechanics of human nature was vividly gifted to us through revelation to facilitate both our physical and spiritual well-being. Certainly, being informed by Allah that flesh of swine is harmful, 1400 years before medical practitioners could explain why, is a splendid gift that saves countless lives. However, being informed about the intricacies of the heart and soul is a far greater bounty, for it deals with the unseen which tangible research can never fully grasp, and because so much more is contigent upon them being healthy than just lives. Rather, eternity is at stake, and the successful person is the one whom Allah allows to realize that this statement is not cliché, but in fact the ultimate reality.
An In-Depth Commentary On Ibn Taymiyyah's Treatise 'The Diseases Of The Heart And Their Cure' , authored by Dr. Yaser Borhamy and translated from Arabic to English by Mohammad Elshinawy, vividly carries its readers through the mechanics of the heart, its diseases and the fountains that fuel its health. Consider its content carefully, for its words were chosen carefully, and teach it to the world, for they need it more than they know. May it be a means to purifying our hearts and lives, finally escaping our vices, safely journeying towards Allah, and properly standing before Him on the Last Day.
We live in an age where the trials of doubts and desires have become rampant and filled much of our hearts with diseases. Furthermore, the advising physicians have become so few, and those who use the effective remedy have become so rare. We have become direly in need of cleansing our hearts, purifying them of these diseases, and protecting them from what surrounds them. And we cannot think of anyone like Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiya (may Allah bestow mercy upon him) to clarify for us the reality of our ailments and the proper usage of the remedy, so that we may be cured by the Book of Allah (the Glorified and Exalted).
