As-Salaam alaikum,
 In ayat 22 of Surat Zumar of the Holy Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala says:--

    "Is one whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, so that
    he has received enlightenment from Allah, (no better than
   one hard-hearted)?
   Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating
   the Praises of Allah!
   They are manifestly wandering (in error)!" (39:22)

 The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was asked about Sharh as-Sadr and he said, "It is a light cast into the heart by which the chest is opened and expanded."
 He was asked: "Is there a way of recognizing one who possesses that light?"
 He, alaihi salaat was-salaam, responded: "Yes, [such people can be recognized by their] indifference [to] the abode of delusions [ie, the life of this world], their constant turning towards the abode of eternity [the hereafter], and their preparation for death before it arrives."
 He was asked: "How does one prepare for death?"
 He, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "Those of you who remember it the most are the best prepared for it."
