The heart is known to be the king of the whole body, and the centre of emotions, faculties, as well as deeds, good or bad. No wonder, the spiritual health of the heart is essential for the health of the body. In Sufi literature, abundant materials are devoted to the heart treatment, its purification, along with spiritual enhancement. Ibn ‘Atā’ Allah al-Sakandari, one of outstanding Sufis, gave important ideas of how to remove diseases of the heart in order to restore its natural purity. Therefore, this article explores al-Sakandari’s treatment of the heart via his famous work, Al-Hikam al-‘Ata’iyyah (Aphorisms).
