In this SeekersGuidance podcast, Shaykh Abdullah Misra covers readings from Imam Tabrizi’s Mishkat al Masabih, which serve to melt the heart and encourage a state of receptiveness to Divine reality.
In the sixth episode of this series, Shaykh Abdullah Misra covers three hadiths from Kitab al-Riqaq, which convey the cure to a hard heart and provide a means to reach Allah Most High. The first hadith discusses the value of this physical world in the sight of Allah Most High and how the apportioning of wealth is at His sole discretion.
The second hadith advises on the remembrance of Allah Most High in every aspect of life, even when choosing a profession and seeking a living. The third hadith cautions against chasing after the glitter of this temporary world, allowing the love of it to overtake the heart. Indeed, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) was given the gift of true eloquence, characterized by the brevity of speech in combination with a multitude of meanings.
