The Bacteria of Sin

Listen Here: “The Bacteria of Sin” by Shaykh Khalid Abdul Sattar

There are two types of impurities: Najaasa Haqiqi which is the physical impurity (like playing football in the rain) and Najaasa Huqmi which is the invisible impurity that exists in the soul.

If you compare water and milk, you’ll see that water can be left out for days and nothing happens to it but if milk is left out even for a few hours it can go bad. Water has no bacteria versus milk that has bacteria that can multiply and take over. This is the same with our hearts, Allah سبحانه و تعالى‎ gave us our pure hearts and all we have to do is keep it. Minor sins just wash away with “Astaghfirullah” but consistent small sins begin to grow, they’re like injected bacteria, and soon just like you cannot call bad milk, milk anymore, similarly you cannot call the heart, heart, anymore.

Allah سبحانه و تعالى‎ gave 12-13 years for us to learn how to be human without incurring any sin. He is ever merciful and simply forgives our sins by our asking. He gave us our pure hearts and told us how to take care of it and protect it, through the shariah and sunnah. But we consistently neglect our hearts, and they start going bad from the inside and don’t realize it because we can’t physically see it (Just like how an apple goes bad, from the inside).

We have to constantly seek Allah’s forgiveness. Sending the salawat on the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم also adds a layer of protection from sin. Anyone who makes a firm intention to turn towards Allah سبحانه و تعالى‎, then all the doors will be open to him and Allah سبحانه و تعالى‎ will protect him from falling into sin. Subhan’Allah!
