The Medicine of the Heart


The master, the honourable one, the possessor of miracles, gnosis, gifts and subtleties – Ibrahim al-Khawwas – may Allah be pleased with him, said, “The medicine of the heart is five things: recitation of the Qur’ān with contemplation, emptying the stomach, standing (in prayer) at night, begging and supplication in the early part of the morning, and the gatherings of the pious.”

(al-Adhkar by Imam al-Nawawi)
