Basirah, Eye of the Heart


Asalamualaikam wb,

Where is the eye of the heart is it the same as the third eye chakra? And is there any quick way to open it and have kashf ?

Shukran Jazakallah
Sallalahu ala habeebihi Rahmatan lil alameen wa ala alihi wa ashabihi ajmaeen


wa ‘alaykum salam wa rahmatullah,

I cannot say it is the same, rather what Islam comes with is original and unique. It maybe that they are related, but I cannot say what that might be.

The way to open the eye of the heart, is to focus on the spiritual practices assigned by the Shaykh, and if you can additionally do muraqabah, that will assist. But when it opens is in their hands. We might practice and practice and nothing happens, and others, even new murids, may come and in one day their heart’s eyes and ears are opened, and all this is a grant from the Shaykh.
