    dead hearts - alive hearts

    dead heart - no thirst for knowlegde of Allah ta'ala

    alive heart - yearning for a taste of the love of Allah ta'ala

    Ishq of Habeeb salAllaho 'alayhi wa alihi wa salam is immense, imagine the One Who Created Habeeb salAllaho 'alayhi wa alihi wa salam

    He feeds everyone, keeps them alive every second

    One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
    He said: 'My son, the battle is between 'two wolves' inside us all.
    One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,superiority, and ego.
    The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.'
    The grandson thought about it for a minute, and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'
    The old Cherokee simply replied: 'The one you feed.'
