The Impact of Sin on Your Heart

The sin will blacken your heart until all black, and not recognizing what is good or rejecting what is abominable.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

تُعْرَضُ الْفِتَنُ عَلَى الْقُلُوبِ كَالْحَصِيرِ عُودًا عُودًا فَأَىُّ قَلْبٍ أُشْرِبَهَا نُكِتَ فِيهِ نُكْتَةٌ سَوْدَاءُ وَأَىُّ قَلْبٍ أَنْكَرَهَا نُكِتَ فِيهِ نُكْتَةٌ بَيْضَاءُ حَتَّى تَصِيرَ عَلَى قَلْبَيْنِ عَلَى أَبْيَضَ مِثْلِ الصَّفَا فَلاَ تَضُرُّهُ فِتْنَةٌ مَا دَامَتِ السَّمَوَاتُ وَالأَرْضُ وَالآخَرُ أَسْوَدُ مُرْبَادًّا كَالْكُوزِ مُجَخِّيًا لاَ يَعْرِفُ مَعْرُوفًا وَلاَ يُنْكِرُ مُنْكَرًا إِلاَّ مَا أُشْرِبَ مِنْ هَوَاهُ

❝Temptations will exist in men’s hearts as reed mat is woven stick by stick. And any heart which accepts them, will have a black mark put into it. But any heart which rejects them, will have a white mark put in it. The result is that there will become two types of hearts: one white like a white stone which will not be harmed by any turmoil or temptation. So long as the heavens and the earth endure; and the other black and dust-coloured like a vessel which is upset. Not recognizing what is good or rejecting what is abominable, but drown with his passion❞ [Sahih Muslim].
