View Full Version : Do Not Make Your Heart Like A Sponge

A good reminder...

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Shaykh al-Islam (may Allaah be pleased with him) said to me – when I started to ask him one question after another –

“Do not make your heart like a sponge soaking up any idea and specious arguments that come to mind, rather make it like a glass through whose surface the specious arguments pass but do not settle there, otherwise if all those doubts and specious arguments settle in your heart, it will be overwhelmed by them.”

Advice which was given by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah to his student Ibn al-Qayyim, as it says in Miftaah Daar al-Sa’aadah, 1/140.
