بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Hakim Tirmizi writes
"Zikr moisten the heart and softens it. A heart that is devoid of zikr becomes dry and hard, due to the excessive heat of lust and desires. All parts of the body likewise become stiff and abstain from submission to Allah; if you try to bend them, they break like a dry piece of wood, which can be used as firewood only."
