The Heart: Fu’aad, Qalb and Sadr

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

In the Qur’an, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’aala uses three words to describe our hearts:

QALB, FU’AAD and SADR. We know that every Arabic word is chosen for a reason, yet all three of these words for the most part are translated as “heart.” As usual, the intricate meanings of these words are not captured in the translation.

Being h e a r t l i n e with Allah!

The interest and involvement one finds in staying and working online cannot be found when you work offline. For when you are online, you are connected to, served by or available through a system.

Connecting with one’s heart is to be online with Allah.

Even though the terms online and hotline were not specifically used in 7th century as they are used and understood now in the computer-savvy 21st century but the fact remains that the Qur’an recognized its importance 14 centuries ago!  Continue reading
