Darkness in Words
The mind and heart of an author is in his words. With his words he captures the minds and hearts of the innocent readers. The written words of a sinner or disbeliever are full of darkness. Each word of his book that we do read fills our heart and mind with darkness. With time we begin to think and desire just as a sinner or disbeliever would.
Hours are spent in reading novels and magazines with full passion and joy. However, a few pages of the Quraan Majeed or some zikr and du‘aa seem to be a burden on the heart. This is a very sad reflection of the condition of our hearts. At the time of death, that which is in our heart will determine how we leave this world. We need to simply fill our hearts with the light of good deeds.
