Rectifying the heart with the Qur’ān | Shaykh Muhammad bin Hādī Al-Madkhalī

[1] The means that were mentioned by the Shaykh are the following:

Firstly: reciting the Qur’ān.

Secondly: reading the Sunnah of the Prophet – sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – and his Seerah.

Thirdly: reading the reports of the Companions and the righteous people, and their biographies.

Fourthly: reading the books of admonitions which remind the person. For verily, they are like the lashes which wake up the person, they hit a person in the heart so that he wakes up and becomes alert.

Fifthly: accompanying the righteous people.

Sixthly: staying away from accompanying the evil people from the people of desires, innovations, sins and wickedness.

Seventhly: it is upon him to always perform du’ā.
