Curing Hardness of the Hearts – Shaykh Saaleh Fawzaan al Fawzaan
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Q: If there are people with hardness in their heart, then what is the affair which softens some of the hardness of the heart?
A: “There is nothing more excellent, neither more necessary than the Qur’an al Kareem, it is that which softens the hearts. Allah, the Majestic and Most High says:
‘Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.’ [Surat ar-Ra’d, Ayah 28]
So that which softens the heart is the Qur’an, that which, had Allah revealed it,
‘…upon a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rending asunder by the fear of Allah.’ [Surat al-Hashr, Ayah 21]
As well as the sittings with the righteous and listening to the Qur’an, and listening to preaching and reminding. This is from what softens the hearts.”
