Ship of the Heart Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Posted by Administrator 2 in #ABS.

“Shaykh S‘adi rahmatullahi alayh explains the relationship of man to material wealth by using the example of a ship and the ocean. A ship cannot function and reach its destination without water; however, the water of the ocean must not enter the ship, otherwise the ship will ultimately sink and be destroyed.

Similarly, man’s heart is also a ship and its ocean is material wealth, without which it is difficult to survive. As long as he keeps the water (the love of material wealth) outside the ship of his heart, he will be able to safeguard himself from sinking. On the contrary, if his heart’s ship begins to let in the water from the ocean he will sink and perish.

We need to understand that this world has been designed for us to use as per need, only enough to reach our destination.”
