The Book of Heart-Melting Traditions (Kitab al-Riqaq) is a chapter included in many primary hadith collections. It compiles the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) that serve to melt the heart or encourage a state of receptiveness to truth and the divine reality. This podcast includes readings from Imam Tabrizi’s Mishkat al Masabih, presented by Shaykh Abdullah Misra.



The heart, a magnificent organ, is immersed in the material world as well as the spiritual unseen world. As a result of continually interacting with creations, the heart becomes hardened. A hard heart shows a lack of attunement, an attachment to worldly things, and a lack of preparation in meeting with the Creator.



Remembrance and revelations melt the hard heart so it can be awakened and opened.



These short podcast episodes cover several hadiths with explanation and can be listened to anytime, anywhere.
