The Impact of Certainty
The Impact of Certainty
1- Certainty Solidify the Heart
Through counsel and precept you can give life to your heart and likewise through advice and admonition; just as you can strengthen the heart through the means of perfect faith and certainty and to stand firm against problems and hindrances.
In as much as you have obtained powerful certainty there will be no room for temptation and indecisiveness and likewise it will uproot weakness and infirmness in you.
The commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) in this respect said:
Give life to your heart with admonition and strengthening it with certainty.
If your decision is like iron in the path of reality
You will know that the path of certainty is also certainty.
In a situation whereby certainty has taken over ones heart, the heart shall be strengthened and firm until it become powerful and there shall be no means for penetration of Satan’s temptation. In this respect, stress and worry shall not exist in you as there will be iron blockade against any worries which will also be shaking any inadequate notions.
The commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) said:
Whoever strengthens his certainty shall never find doubtfulness.
If you have even reach possessive stage or the softness of the beautiful lady (houri);
So far you did not attain spiritual rank; your heart is far from others.
Constantly doubt and indecisiveness whether in ideological issues or in other issues is found in an individual that doesn’t enjoyed strong certainty. Those who’s their certainty has not reached the stage of perfection are affected with satanic storming and likewise it insert temptations in such people, but as for those whose heart has been taken by certainty there will be standby iron blockade against the Satan’s attack.
In this respect Imam Baqir (peace be upon him) said:
… At the time whereby certainty passes by the heart, it will become like a piece strong of iron.
By strengthening the heart not only doubt and indecisiveness in ones ideology shall seize to exist in it, or certainty will serve as firm stronghold that will protect him rather it will enable him to increase other peoples’ faith and certainty.
