The Journey to Allah and the Home of the Hereafter . Of all the faculties man has been endowed with, none excels the heart in importance and nobility. For the heart is both the seat of intelligence and understanding, and the locus of faith and spirituality; it is the quintessential faculty by which man may come to know his creator, and seek nearness and intimacy with Him. The heart’s spiritual sustenance lie sin its being receptive to the effusions of divine grace and guidance, without which the veils that cover it will continue to corrupt its primordial purity, gradually rendering it dysfunctional! Each veil- a metaphor for heedlessness, sins and distraction- that is melted away by the rays of faith and spiritual endeavour, allows vital qualities such as love of Allah, as well as hope, fear, remembrance, and reliance upon Him, are referred to in the religious vocabulary as spiritual stations; only when the heart embraces these stations is it said to be truly sound. The Majestic Qur’an informs:

‘The day when wealth and sons avail not, save him who brings to Allah a heart that is sound.’

This book explains the main spiritual stations that the heart is required to embrace as part of its worship of Allah and its journeying to Him. The book is based on a poem written by the author and his explanation of it.

It is better for all of us to ponder deeply about out future and about our eternal life which is everlasting. We are expected to devote some time in this to ponder what will occur in the life to come.

The Day of Judgment is the day on which all creation will meet, fully and fairly, the reward for how they conducted themselves in this life. It is a day which is different from all other days. It will come, sooner or later. But some questions must be raised: Are we fully prepared and aware of this day? What are its signs and horrors? When will it come? What will it look like?

Sheikh Muhammad bin ‘Uthaymeen, may Allah have mercy on him, gave a sermon describing the signs and horrors of such a day.

Allah (SWT) has placed in every human being the natural desire and inclination for gold, silver, money, transportation (cars), land, and other items of this world. The test for a person is how he responds to his desire for these items. If he uses these items to prepare for the hereafter, he will be successful. On the other hand, if he devotes himself to fulfilling his desire for these items and forgets about his purpose in this world, he will be amongst the losers in the hereafter.
