The spiritual heart is that which only operates if it is able to turn without absolutely anything hindering or obstructing it,  just like the physical heart. The only thing that it pivots around is the Creator. It connects the human being in the seen with the unseen, augmenting the ‘aql  , intellect. In it are the capacities to reflect with deep understanding, to retain real knowledge, and to gain far greater insight than our intellects are capable of giving us. The heart is what is nourished by the remembrance of God. Its health depends on its purity and freedom as far as attachments and worldly matters are concerned.

Suratur Ra’d 13:28  Saleem in relation to the heart is translated as Immaculate conscience, sound heart, perfect, healthy, wholesome, contented and so on describe the condition of the heart, it implies that these hearts are in dynamic motion and have the ability to reflect the truth. A large number of other ayaat describe the ‘sick’ heart or one that is ‘diseased’. The sick hearts are those that find whatever they do attractive. These hearts dislike that which turns them away from the course they are on. They are immersed in fantasy. They follow routines and old patterns, doin g ‘what their forefathers practiced’. The sick heart is also closed, proud, and lacks real understanding for it is engulfed in desire and perversity, constantly in discord and acrimony; hardened and diseased. The Qur`an goes on to describe those hearts that are deadened or sealed. The dead heart is that which is veiled from higher inspiration; wallows in its own turmoil, is cynical and trivializes everything. If such a heart is not treated it will only bury itself deeper, accumulating a rust-like seal over itself. The hearts of the munafiqun , hypocrites, are thus sealed. There is little or nothing we can do to heal such hearts, because of the nature of nifaq , hypocrisy. The word nafaq  means a hole that has several entrances and exits. That is the way of the hypocrite: he enters from one hole and escapes from another; he has many disguises to hide behind. The hypocrite says something meaning something else, causing disruption, confusion, and disunity, when life is about certainty, knowledge, and discovering tawhid  , unity.
