"

A man said to al-Hasan al-Basri: “O Abu Sa`eed, I am complaining to you of the hardness of my heart.”

He said: “Soften it with dhikr. The more forgetful the heart is, the hard it becomes, but if a person remembers Allah, that hardness softens as copper melts in the fire.

Nothing can soften the hardness of the heart like the remembrance of Allah, may He be glorified and exalted. Dhikr is healing and medicine for the heart.

Forgetfulness is a disease, the cure for which is remembrance of Allah.”
