We hear the term, he’s got brainwashed, or he has no brain, because he’s stupid.
But is it really the brain who’s responsible for our behaviour?
When Allah swt talks about the hypocrites, the He says:
|“Verily, those who disbelieve, it is the same to them whether you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) warn them or do not warn them, they will not believe.|
|Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, (i.e. they are closed from accepting Allah’s Guidance), and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be a great torment.|
|And of mankind, there are some (hypocrites) who say: “We believe in Allah and the Last Day” while in fact they believe not.|
|They (think to) deceive Allah and those who believe, while they only deceive themselves, and perceive (it) not!|
|In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allah has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies”. Surah 2 verse 6-10|
The Messenger of Allah saws said: “Oh turner of the hearts (Allah, the Most High), keep our hearts firm on your religion“.
In a other hadith it’s said: “All the hearts of the offspring of Aadam are between two fingers of Ar-Rehman’s Fingers, as one heart. He turns it (in any direction) as He wills. Then Allaah’s Messenger said, “O Allaah! The Turner of the hearts, turn our heart towards Your obedience.”
And there is more, what we’ll not take here. Out of all this, we can understand that it’s the heart who’s the commander over our actions.
“There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart.”
