Reasons For A Heart To Be In Anguish

From The Most Significant Reasons For A Heart To Be In Anguish

Al-Hafidh Ibn Al-Qayyim [رحمه الله] [D. 751 A.H.] said:

«وَمِن أعْظَمِ أسْبابِ ضِيقِ الصَّدْرِ» 

❝From the most significant reasons why a heart is in anguish:

«الإعْراضُ عَنِ اللَّهِ تَعالى،»

1 – Is turning away from Allaah [تعالى].

«وتَعَلُّقُ القَلْبِ بِغَيْرِهِ،»

2 – Attaching the heart to other than Him.

«والغَفْلَةُ عَنْ ذِكْرِهِ، ومَحَبَّةُ سِواهُ،»

3 – Neglect from remembering Him and loving other than Him.

«فَإنَّ مَن أحَبَّ شَيْئًا غَيْرَ اللَّهِ عُذِّبَ بِهِ، وسُجِنَ قَلْبُهُ في مَحَبَّةِ ذَلِكَ الغَيْرِ.»

Indeed whoever loved something other than Allaah, then that person is punished by that thing, and his heart is imprisoned by loving it.❞

[Za’ad Al-Ma’ad, (2/24) | Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Miraath Al-Anbiyya]
