Can you mention the reference for this narration?

إن للذنوب ضعفا في القوة وقسوة في القلب وإن للحسنات قوة في البدن ونورا في القلب



Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of the famous Imam and Saint, Ibrahim ibn Adham (rahimahullah).

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 6827)



Certainly sins cause weakness in a person’s strength and hardness of the heart. Good deeds create bodily strength and light in the heart.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
