Clearing Our Hearts for Allah Ta’ala

Hazratwala (db) once narrated the following incident:

Hadhrat Mufti Shafi’ ‘Uthmani Sahib (ra) says that once while he was walking with Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (ra) to his house, Hadhrat took out a pencil and paper, wrote something down, and replaced it in his pocket.

He then addressed Mufti Shafi’ Sahib,
“Mufti Sahib, what have I just done?”

Hadhrat Mufti Sahib replied,
“Hadhrat you took out a pencil and paper, jotted down something and replaced it in your pocket.”

Hadhrat Thanwi (ra) then drew Mufti Sahib’s attention to and pointed out the wisdom of his action, he said,
“Something was repeatedly coming to mind and the apprehension that I may forget it caused my heart to be totally absorbed by it.”

“Having written it down, I have removed the weight that bore so heavily on my heart, vacating my heart for Allah.”
