Subject: HEART MATTERS

My Fellow Muslim,

As-Salaam Alay-Kum

I was immensely pleased to receive a note, full of warmth, from you, particularly the way I relayed my thought process on the subject of humanity.

HEART MATTERS as outlined in an article in the New Age magazine (May/June 2001), Diane Goldner states as follows:

In spiritual traditions, harmony, love and healing are the territory of the heart.
Now scientists are finding evidence of these states in our heart rhythms –
evidence that suggests this organ may have a profound impact on our health
and well-being.

We Muslims do not apply our heart as we are the least bit bothered about it. Most of us have never even heard that just like fingerprints, each person’s heartbeat is unique.

“Scientists” wrote Diane Goldner, “are just beginning to map” exuberant “heart rhythms associated with meditation and feelings of love and peace. Yet for a few doctors and medical researchers, the data already indicate one simple thing: Love heals.”

From the bottom of my heart, I do thank you for your moral support, and let us pray that the hearts of our Muslim Ummah heal so as to keep up peace with our fellow humans. Too much hate has extinguished the spark of divinity from our hearts, as we have not yet been able to fully comprehend that HEART MATTERS.

Warmest regards,

Mohammed Rafiq Lodhia

Dear Mr. Lodhia,

Wa ‘alaikum-as-Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Thank you for your prompt response to my e-mail request.

You have explained the differences and the interaction between Adamiyyat and Insaniyyat very eloquently, not philosophically, which a nonprofessional like me could easily comprehend. May God Almighty (Allah) bless you in this world, Amin, and reward you accordingly in the Hereafter, Thumma Amin.

I strongly feel that this document is worthy of being read and understood by as many Muslims as non-Muslims.

Therefore, I request you please to put it in your daily Internet messages, without naming names, so that others may also benefit from your beautiful explanation of the two misunderstood basic traits of humanity in action.

Thanking you once again, I promise to remain, always,

Sincerely,

A Fellow Muslim
