His heart is empty of the love of Allaah

Reference: al-Jawaab al-Kaafee – p236

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

So if you see a man whose taste and desire is for listening to verses [of poetry] rather than verses [of the Qur.aan], and for listening to music rather than the Qur.aan – then this is the strongest of evidences that his heart is empty of the love of Allaah and His Speech.
