Is it necessary that the heart becomes inclined or necessary that it be made to incline?
The self became inclined and the person eats food, it never became inclined (to eat) so he takes medicine. Are both beneficial or not? In the same manner, when the self is inclined (towards Ibaadat) and the person practices then it is like food for the soul. On the other hand, if a person is not inclined but still practices then it will be like the medicine, and in both cases the objective is attained.
A person will consume extremely bitter and pungent medicine for his physical health but for his spiritual health if he has to endure some difficulty temporarily (because he is forcing himself to do good actions) then he causes a scene! Do not bother about becoming inclined, just remain ready and prepared to fulfil the commands. When a person gets involved in business then he endures so many difficulties; doesn’t eat, doesn’t sleep but just focuses on the work. Here they do not consider whether the self is inclined or not.
This is the business of the hereafter and this is substantiated in Qur’aan:
O THOSE WHO BELIEVE, SHALL I TELL YOU ABOUT A TRADE THAT SAVES YOU FROM A PAINFUL PUNISHMENT?
Similarly, there is great effort in farming and cultivation. The farmer makes so much effort merely based on hopes. It is said:
اِنَّ الدُّنيا مَزْرَعَةُ الآخِرَة
The world is a place of tillage (and reaping) for the hereafter.
So why does a person become frustrated with this business and farming (spiritual) and why does he complain that the heart is not inclined? (He does not complain when it is related to worldly business and farming but complains when it comes to making effort for his spiritual development and benefit in the hereafter).
ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING ALLAH SUBHAANAHU WA'TAALA
He is the One who has made the sun a glow and the moon a light, and determined for it stages, so that you may know the number of the years, and the calculation (of time). Allah has not created all this but for something right. He thus elaborates the signs for a people who understand. [Maariful Quran 10:5]
Surely, in the alternation of night and day and in what Allah has created in the heavens and the earth, there are signs for a people who are God-fearing. [Maariful Quran 10:6]
For those who want to meet Allah, His signs are everywhere
There are signs in the coming of the night after the day and the day after the night, and in everything Allah has created in the heavens and the earth. These are open proofs (of the Oneness of Allah and the inevitability of the Hereafter) for those who fear Allah.
That they are proofs of the Oneness of Allah (Tauhid) is not difficult to see. He has the power to make things happen. He makes things as no one can. He creates everything without the help of materials, personnel and prototype, and has the mastery to operate them under a system that never breaks or must be replaced.
Proofs of the Aakhirah and Accountability
And they are proofs of the 'Akhirah (Hereafter) because Allah is a great creator. He created, in His infinite wisdom, objects of such pro-portion and efficiency for the benefit of human beings. Then, He made them follow a remarkably stable system. Now, it is not possible that He would have created human beings, who are the served ones in this universe, just for nothing, or just to eat and drink, or in some other nonchalant manner without assigning any duties to them.
In this World a criminal can be afforded more luxuries than a righteous servant
When it stands settled that some restrictions must apply to the served one of this universe, it also becomes necessary that those who observe or do not observe these restrictions should face an accounting of what they have done, sometime, somewhere. Naturally, those who do observe these shall be rewarded and those who do not shall be punished. Then, it is also obvious that things do not work like this in the present world of our experience. Here, reward and punishment do not follow that pattern. It is quite likely that a criminal here may be living better as compared to someone God-fearing, righteous and innocent. Therefore, it is necessary to have a day for the accounting of deeds, rewards and punishments. This is what Qiyamah (The Last Day) and 'Akhirah (Hereafter) are.
As for those who do not believe in meeting Us and are happy with the life of this world and are quite satisfied with it, and those who are heedless to Our signs, they are the ones whose abode is the Fire because of what they used to earn for themselves. [Maariful Quran 10:7-8]
Worse and more corrupt than the Imaamat doctrine of the Shia’s, are the beliefs which they have regarding the Holy Qur’aan which are hereby recorded with the references from their authentic literature:
There are seventeen thousand Ayah in real Qur’aan. (Al Shafi, Vol. No. 2, Page No. 616)
The comparison between the Holy Qur’aan and Shia's Qur’aan which was compiled by Hazrat Ali Radiallhu anhu and which will be brought by the Imam-e-Ghaib near Qayamat. (Asool Kaafi, Vol. No. 2, Page No. 123)
No one possesses complete knowledge of Holy Qur’aan except the Imams. (Asool Kaafi, Vol. No. 1, Page No. 228)
The Qur’aan was revealed in four parts whereas the present Qur’aan consists of three parts. (Shia Aur Tehreef-e-Qur’aan, page No. 62)
The Qur’aan is altered corrupted and in an inverted form. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, Page No.129)
The present Qur’aan is abridged where as the Original Qur’aan is kept by Imam Mehdi. (Hazaar Tumhari Das Hamari, Page No. 553)
Qur’aan was eaten by God. (Min Kitab-ul- Burhan Fee Tafseer-ul-Qur’aan, Page No. 38)
Renegades changed the Original Holy Qur’aan. (Qur’aan Majeed by Hakeem Syed Maqbool, Page No. 1011)
The main compilers of the Qur’aan interpreted, changed, corrupted and perverted the Holy Qur’aan. (Al-Ehtijaj, Page No. 257)
According to the Shia’s, the entire Ummah has been in the dark concerning the authentic Qur’aan. The authentic Qur’aan, according to the Shias, will be disclosed by the final Imaam unto mankind. Until then, everyone, including all the Shias, are following an incomplete Qur’aan.
How can “Unity in the Ummah” be possible with people who hold such corrupt and trash beliefs?
Hadhrat Junaid Baghdaadi (Rahmatullah alayh) said that Hahrat Ahmad Hawaari (Rahmatullah alayh) “is the Flower of the Land of Shaam.”
Once his Shaikh, Hadhrat Sulaimaan Daaraai (Rahmatullah alayh) was in a state of ecstasy. He ordered Hadhrat Ahmad Hawaari to sit inside the blazing furnace. In obedience, he went inside the furnace and sat down. After a long while when he emerged from his ecstasy, he wondered where Hadhrat Ahmad Hawaari was. He instructed his mureeds to search for him. Finally it occurred to him that he had said to Hadhrat Ahmad to sit inside the furnace. When he and the mureeds looked into the furnace, they saw Hadhrat Ahmad Hawaari (Rahmatullah alayh) seated comfortably. Not a hair on his body had burnt.
Once in a dream he saw a beautiful damsel from Jannat. Her face was exceptionally radiant. Hadhrat Ahmad said to her: “O Damsel! Your face is wonderfully radiant.” She said: “O Ahmad! The glitter (Noor) on my face is the effect of the tears you had shed on a certain night. I rubbed those tears on my face, hence this radiance.”
“A person is not a sincere repenter as long as there is no remorse in his heart, no Istighfaar on his tongue, and as long as he does not abandon sins, and as long as he does not strive in ibaadat. Only then will he be a sincere repenter.”
“One who has greater intelligence, becomes a greater Aarif. He reaches his destination swiftly.”
“Raja’ (hope in Allah) is the strength of those who have fear for Allah Ta’ala.”
“The greatest regret is the regret for the loss of such moments which were destroyed in sin and futility.”
“The noor of Faqr and Zuhd is eliminated from the heart of one who gazes at the world with the intention of befriending it.”
“He who has not recognized his nafs, undoubtedly he is trapped in pride and arrogance.”
“Nothing is worse than involvement in hard heartedness and obliviousness (ghaflat).”

وعن حكيم بن حزام رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: "اليد العليا خير من اليد السفلى، وابدأ بمن تعول، وخير الصدقة عن ظهر غنى ومن يستعفف يعفه الله، ومن يستغن يغنه الله” (متفق عليه)
Hakim bin Hizam (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, "The upper hand is better than the lower one; and begin (charity) with those who are under your care; and the best charity is (the one which is given) out of surplus; and he who wishes to abstain from begging will be protected by Allah; and he who seeks self- sufficiency will be made self-sufficient by Allah."
