Curing the Heart

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Whenever a believer feels some pains
He rushes to a doctor for quick relief
The trials of Dunya is bound to end
Even if it lasts from birth to death

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The sickness of the body is of great concern
Despite the fact that man will meet his death
And that his body will rot away
With all its ailments becoming a dream

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The sickness of the body are treated at once
And with a desperation rare in life
How many patients are there on the air
Flying to doctors in some countries far

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The health of the body is precious indeed
It is the key to the fortunes of life
But it counts for nothing compared to the heart’s
For man’s eternity depends on his heart

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The health of the body is bound to end
Like some water running for a time
The health of the heart is unlike this
Its bliss is eternal just like its pains

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Now my brothers let us reflect
On the Book of Allah Qur’an al Majid
Focusing on the verses that pointedly say
Jannat is impossible unless we’re pure

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The purity of the heart is the only pass
Leading to Jannat and all its bliss
Paradise is impossible says the Qur’an
For all devoid of living hearts

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Make haste my brothers to cure your hearts
Act fast my sisters to remove your filths
Curing the heart should be the goal
If in the Akhirah you’ll in Jannat stay

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah
Whatever the Sharia says ‘Do not’
Is a poison for the heart and a darkness grim
Whenever a believer follows his whims
He makes a sajda to the accursed shaytan

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Music is darkness so filthy a sin
Spend your moments guiding your tongue
Mix with people in line with the Deen
Whenever a believer casts a lustful gaze
At any woman na-mahram to him
He loses his Nur all at once

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Fear your creator avoiding the Donts
Whether in the menial or very important deeds
A believer is pure from head to toe
Iman only on the tongue will bring regret

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Keep yourself attached to the Holy Qur’an
Both in the day and at nightly times
And try to live by the message of Qur’an
So that Qur’an be a witness for you

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Read about the pious of the ages past
And sit at the feet of those alive
Piety is impossible if all your life
You mix with sinners following your nafs

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Eat with caution for a healthy heart
Your food must be halal and very pure
When a believer eats his fill
He becomes a toy in the hands of Shaytan

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Constant repentance at every turn
Is a condition for purity do not forget
A true believer is ever in tears
Seeing his life soaked in sins

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Sleep with moderation to please your Lord
And give up some sleep to win His grace
The moment at fajr is full of Nur
Which for hearts are cure for sure

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Be it Rumi or Shamsh of Tabriz
Be it Razi or Hujjatul Islam
None is raised to Allah’s esteem
Unless at fajr he was soaked in tears
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Be constant in saying the Kalimah of Tawhid
This is a security for Kufr and niqaq
The best of Zikr for curing the heart
Is to acknowledge the onenes of Allah

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Salawat for the Prophet is also a cure
This is a light given on the Miraj
Salawat is light on your worldly path
Light at death and in the grave
Light for you on the Day of Hisab
Light for you on the path of sirat
And light for you in Jannat Firdaws

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah
Both in the menial and the best of deeds
The Sunnah is a cure perfect and pure
Without the Sunnah the heart is ruined

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The rights of believer is sacred please
Act with caution fulfilling their needs
The worst of sins apart from shirk
To the men of Ihsan is to hurt the heart
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Concerns for the Ummah of Rasulullah
Is a key to purity valued by few
Preserve its heritage sacrificing your time
Promote his legacy using your wealth

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

Make haste right now to cure your heart
Your action and reaction determine your end
Listen to the silent foot of time
As it tricks man to his sudden end

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah

The people of Dunya are desperate for wealth
And for the health of the body they labor for years
But men of wisdom cure the hearts
Following the Sunnah of Mustafa
Khatam-I ambiyai Rosulullah
So that in the Akhirah they will not regret

La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ilallah
La ilaha ila Allahu
Muhammadur Rasulullah
