In this talk Shaykh Abdur-Rahman begins by mentioning the importance of balance in every aspect of a person’s life. Quoting, Hujjat al-Islam Imam Ghazali on one having the “prophetic equilibrium”, considering our Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon Him) was the most balanced in everything. Shaykh goes on to differentiate between the illnesses of the body and the heart and its cures. Just as the one who has a physical illness seeks out a cure for his condition, the one who has an ill heart must also seek out an ailment for his condition. However, the Shaykh mentions that the latter person is in deception. As his nafs is engrossed in the worldly pleasures he cannot diagnose his illness, therefore, there will be no change in his condition. The Shaykh goes on to mention how one can awaken this dead heart and build to strengthen it by mentioning the importance and effects of muraqaba.
