This gem was sent to a student of Shaykha Shahbano’s in November 2018 – the audio is available at the bottom of this post.
You’ll find, often, that situations and people transform when your intent transforms – without you having to say or even do anything. They just seem to intuit it.
Allah knows your heart and Allah turns the other heart as well; He knows the other heart as well.
That’s why intent is so powerful, because once you make that inner shift, He is your witness and then He changes things on the outside.
This also goes back to that ayah in the Quran – that Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. That’s the starting point and sometimes that’s all that is required – is to just shift your intent inwardly and the outside just changes you don’t even really have to even do much. Alhamdulillah.
Of course because He knows all the hearts and He turns all the hearts.
