Enter the Heart of Muhammad    
  
We often wish we could enter the hearts of our loved ones and see them from the inside, so we could truly know them. That wish hardly ever gets fulfilled and when it does, in rare moments, the glimpses are faint and fleeting. Moreover, what we see there does not always please us. But there is one exception, and in this case we are extremely fortunate. It is Muhammad (sallallhu alayhi wa sallam) who Muslims are supposed to love most of all human beings. We can enter the deepest recesses of his heart, and the view does not disappear. It stays still for us, and what we see there never fails to please us.

To enter Muhammad's (saws) heart and see what is there we have to turn to his innumerable du'as, or supplications to Allah. There was hardly a moment in his life when Muhammad (saws) was not making some du'a: standing, sitting, lying down, in private and in public, for everything he did, big or small, in every situation he faced, in joy, in sorrow, in hardship and in ease. Du'as were the very breath of his life. It is with these du'as that every element of his life was consecrated; nothing profane remained. His life became a single unbroken act of worship. Let us look at some of his du'as in their English translation:

The Believer and the Problems of Life  
  
Recently in a conversation with our good friend Abdul Hayy, we were speaking about what is most important in our spiritual work. Sometimes people seek knowledge of what they think are high spiritual states. They search the texts for new information, rare esoteric knowledge, secrets of the path, while forgetting to apply the most basic principles. "I tell people," Abdul Hayy said, "it would be good to read the Masnevi or Gulshan-I Raz and try to understand what is there and what can be applied to oneself." 

Later that day, in reflecting upon a rather difficult and complex situation, mediating between two sides, each of whom was experiencing pain, disappointment, and the inability to forgive, I had one of those insights that is so simple and ordinary and yet catches the essence of the teaching. It is about the highest attainment, the quality that captures hearts and wins trust. It's about a quality that evokes love and devotion.

And yet, it is very elusive. We can learn languages, perfect the details of rituals and ceremonies, memorize poems and verses of revelation, and still miss this quality.

Without this quality, we react to provocations, nurture jealousies, and are hurt by criticism. Without this quality, we may even do harm to others, and to ourselves; perhaps not in violent or overt ways, but perhaps in subtle, hidden ways.

 How to repent for a sin

 Ibn Umar related that a man came to the Prophet and said, "I have committed a serious sin. Is there a way for me to repent for it?" The Prophet asked him, "Is your mother alive?" He replied that she was not. Then he asked, "Do you have a maternal aunt?" And he said yes. The Prophet told him, "Then go be kind to her.".

Sayings of the Prophet collected by Al Tirmidhi

Also known Abu Isa Muhammad ibn Isa ibn Sawrah ibn Musa ibn al aak al-Sulami al-Sulami al-Tirmidhi (824-892 CE). He was born in Bagh, a suburb of Termez, Khurasan - Persia, Present day in Uzbekistan.
