They are not our slaves and we don’t own them.
Qalb (قلب) in al-Qur’aan used in many places does not only refer to the ‘organic heart‘, but it encompasses everything which controls our actions.
Inner unconscious, self esteem, intellect, heart and mind, this is what is meant by Qalb (قلب) in al-Quraan.
When a person commits something wrong, firstly his/her Qalb will become restless and painful, until he steps back from it.
But when a person ignores this alarm of his inner compass continuously and does what he wishes, that is the time his Qalb begins to die.
And a day will come when he will no longer feel his Qalb in the restless condition because it stopped to buzz.
One thing we must not forget that every part of our body is a Muslim (slave of Allaah).
They are ordered by Allaah to work for so and so souls, they are not our slaves and we don’t own them.
Every Qalb is in a continuous remembrance of Allaah even when you ignore it and let it die.
The best and the most easy way to verify any action and intention that can cause your Qalb to die is to see whether this action or intention will make you or take you away from the remembrance of Allaah or not, because the remembrance of Allaah is the basic food for every Qalb.
As reported by البيهقي relates from (عايئشه (رضى الله عنها that the (رسول الله (صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “There is no time in which the son of Aadam does not remember Allaah in it, except that it will be a source of regret for him on the Day of Judgement“.
