Man’s Heart is the Best Guide

And by Nafs (Adam or a person or a soul, etc.), and Him Who perfected him in proportion; Then He showed him what is wrong for him and what is right for him; (Ash-Shams 91:7-8)

Excerpt from Riyad As-Saliheen, v.1

591. Wabisah bin Ma’bad, radia’allahu anhu, reported:

I went to the Messenger of Allah, sallahu alaihi wa salaam, and he asked me,

“Have you come to inquire about piety?”

I replied in the affirmative. Then he said,

Ask your heart regarding it. Piety is that which contents the soul and comforts the heart, and sin is that which causes doubt and perturbs the heart, even if people pronounce it lawful and give you verdicts on such matters again and again.” [Ahmad and Ad-Darmi]

 

Man’s ♥ is the biggest guide to him and he, therefore, should keep his heart illuminated with the light of Faith so as to continue receiving guidance from it.
