Deeds of the Heart

The issue of the deeds of the hearts is an immensely important subject, and this is why many scholars have written countless books on the subject – in order to remind and encourage people to perform them. These deeds require sacrifice and exertion because one’s salvation is dependant on them; moreover, the deeds of the limbs will not be performed if these of the heart are absent. Reliance upon Allaah is something that has an immense impact on a person; it is an implication of belief and is one of the finest deeds and acts of worship by which the slave can draw close to Allaah, the All-Merciful; It is one of the highest ranks of Islaamic monotheism because nothing can occur except through one relying and depending upon Allaah for it to do so.
