When the heart dies

When the heart dies

Umar Ibn Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) once said to Al Ahnaf bin Qais (May Allah be pleased with him)

“Oh Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he possess. Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly. Whoever does something frequently will be known by that thing. Whoever speaks often, errs often. The more often one errs, the less modesty he will possess. Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety, and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.”

[Sifatus-Safwah]
