The First Heart
Is empty of Eemaan and of any kind
of good; this is a dark heart, which Satan no longer
whispers into, because he, may Allah curse him, has
already taken it as a permanent abode, and has full
control over it.
The Second Heart
Is Illuminated with the light of Eemaan
but there is still a certain level of desire within it, so Satan
can whisper into it every so often. The Eeman of this heart
fluctuates, it increases and decreases; sometimes it defeats
Satan, whilst at other times it is defeated.
The Third Heart
Is full of the light of Eeman, There is no
desire that can affect it. This type of heart is always shining
with Eeman, so Satan’s whispering cannot affect it; in fact
satan is likely be burnt as soon he comes close to it. This
heart is like the heaven, protected by the stars, so if Satan
comes close to it he is stoned and burnt at once. This type of
heart is protected by Allah because it is the focal point of Tawheed, love of Allah, knowledge and sincere Eeman.
Such a heart is therefore deserving of protection from the allurement and ruses of Satan.
