What is emptiness and what caused the emptiness of heart?
The heart is made from Allah and Allah made the empty place to fill with the proper things. Such as love to Allah, near to Allah, and remember Allah.
If it’s not fill with the proper things, the heart will broken and feel something missing in heart.
We cannot fulfill the heart with the money, popularity, power and the things that related with dunya.
We have to remember this life is very short and we will GO BACK HOME. Where is the home? The next life, the hereafter. So, in this life we looking for the right way to go back home. When we realize that we just a traveler in this world, we will not take them in our heart, not make them our goal.
In this life, we will face two things, the good things and the bad things. For muslims, matter of everything is good for him. Goodship or hardship we respond with the understanding to get closer to home with Sabr and Syukr.
Sabr in Al-Baqarah 153 means we prevent our body to do ma’siat, prevent our mouth not complained, speak for bad, and the most difficult is prevent the heart to not lose hope to Allah
Yafzah ila shalah.. If you are afraid of something.. Go firstly for shalah.
And Allah will give sabr in your heart. Sabr for to be patient and to be taat for do the worship. Do prayer on time, read quran, do fasting, and dzikr.
And rememeber, This world cannot break you, unless you give it permission. And it cannot own you unless you hand it the keys, unless you give it your heart. And so, if you have handed those keys to dunya for a while—take them back. This isn’t the End. You don’t have to die here. Reclaim your heart and place it with its rightful owner:
