So if you - O servant of Allaah - wish to cure your heart
Ibn Hajr Al-Asqalaanee rahimahullah said: The heart has been singled out because it is the leader of the body and through the purification of the leader, the subjects become purified, and with his corruption they become corrupted.
So if you - O servant of Allaah - wish to cure your heart then it is upon you to be truthful with regards to seeking refuge with Allaah and putting trust in Him, to pray a great deal of supererogatory prayers, to perform the actions of obedience to Allaah frequently, to pray the night prayer while the people are sleeping, and to treat your heart by making it continuously stick to the remembrances and by befriending only the righteous and to frequently recite the Qurâan. And Allaah will indeed allow all of this to be preserved by Him.
