On The Three Kinds of Heart(s).

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum, 

The 'Ulama tell us that there are 3 types/kinds of heart, namely :

(1) The purified inward-- qalb-e-saleem. 

(2) The inward returned to Allah - - qalb-e-muneeb and

(3) The inward engrossed in observation of Allah - - qalb-e-shaheed. 

The purified inward has nothing but Allah. The inward returned to Allah is attentive only towards Allah, turning away from everyone. The inward engrossed in observation of Allah witnesses only Allah and His nature in everything. 

Allah Ta'ala says:

"And (also) do not follow him whose inward We have made neglectful of Our invocation and who follows but the urge of his (inner self) and his case has exceeded all bounds" (18:28) 

The man of inward never looks towards anything but Allah.
