SWEETS WORDS 69 [ The Heart of the Matter ]
Poga Humayun Dundiwala
Hand can only hold you,
But it is my heart what keeps,
Scent for soul bud for jar.
Poga Says in The Foolington Maze
Actions are manifestation of mentality of men,
While intentions of spirituality remains hidden in his heart.
Hidden are the desire of the hunter,
Manifest are the executioner dart.
Awaluddin Marifathullah Says : Doubt is not kept in the grip of mental case.
But in the treasure box of heart,
Held by the emotional embrace.
It is the heart,
What takes first impact of the drop of wisdom.
By weighing the entire being,
Not just its particular atom.
Mind is there not to weigh,
But to count.
Every grain of sands of the mental mount.
Where heart weigh the mountain,
And finds it light not heavy.
There brain measures the value,
By counting worth of diamond with beauty of ruby.
So if doubt leads to depression,
And depression to cardiac arrest.
Therefore there don't cut off the head,
But cut open the breast.
And fill the heart with faith
And belief to find ease.
Because where doubt brings crisis,
There faith will please.
Therefore do the divine heart surgery,
To improve your faith in all.
Therefore where there is thought too difficult,
For doubting mind to control.
There think not by brain but heart,
And see how miracle is logical and simple.
If heart does not absorb the very first impact,
From those hated words so harsh.
If not then cruel curses will surly burn,
The brain to aquatic ash.
How does sperms knows location of egg.
Our headless brainless entity,
Without hands or leg.
It knows by instinct,
Like the pulse of life.
And see the heart how it pumps,
Without struggle and strife.
If it was left to brain to think before breathing.
Surely they will forget about it,
While working or sleeping.
So He hath put as a consequence hypocrisy into their hearts,
(to last) till the Day, whereon they shall meet Him: because
they broke their covenant with Allah, and because they lied
(again and again). (Surah At-Tawba, 77)
The ground (of complaint) is against such as claim exemption
The foundation of those who so build is never free from
suspicion and shakiness in their hearts, until their hearts are
cut to pieces.And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise. (Surah At-
But those in whose hearts is a disease,- it will add doubt to
their doubt, and they will die in a state of Unbelief. (Surah At-
Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0314: Anas b. Malik reported
on the authority of Malik b. Sa sa', perhaps a person of his tribe,
that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I was
near the House (i. e. Ka'bah) in a state between sleep and
wakefulness when I heard someone say: He is the third among
the two persons. Then he came to me and took me with him.
Then a golden basin containing the water of Zamzam
was brought to me and my heart was opened up to such
and such (part). Qatada said: I asked him who was with
me (i e. the narrator) and what he meant by such and
such (part). He replied: (It means that it was opened) up
to the lower part of his abdomen (Then the hadith
continues): My heart was extracted and it was washed
with the water of Zamzam and then it was restored in
its original position, after which it was filled with faith
Research over the past two decades has shown that depression
and heart disease are common companions and, what is worse,
each can lead to the other. It appears now that depression is an
important risk factor for heart disease along with high blood
cholesterol and high blood pressure. A study conducted in
Baltimore, MD found that of 1,551 people who were free of
heart disease, those who had a history of depression were 4
times more likely than those who did not to suffer a heart
attack in the next 14 years. In addition, researchers in
Montreal, Canada found that heart patients who were
depressed were 4 times as likely to die in the next 6 months as
those who were not depressed.
I doubt completely my ability to do anything well.
It seems as though my mind has slowed down and burned out
to the point of being virtually useless... . [I am] haunt[ed] ...
with the total, the desperate hopelessness of it all. Others say,
"It's only temporary, it will pass, you will get over it," but, of
course, they haven't any idea of how I feel, although they are
certain they do. If I can't feel, move, think, or care, then what
on earth is the point
Persistent self-doubt and second-guessing is a common feature
of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder and
OCD. In some cases, the doubt may revolve around a question
that's central to a person's identity, like "What if I'm gay?" or
"Do I love my husband as much as he loves me?"
In OCD, Winston says, these "doubt attacks" are especially
common when a question is unanswerable. People with OCD
"think, 'If only I would know 100% for sure whether I was gay or
straight, either one would be fine,' but they have this
intolerance for uncertainty that turns the question into an
