A Brief Guide to Tazkiyah

by Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh

The condition of the heart is in reality the factor which controls a person's conduct. A person who has reformed his heart will never act contrary to the Commands of Allāh ta'ālā at any given moment. In every breath of his life he will be mindful of Allāh's Pleasure.

In contrast, a person who has not purified his heart from evil traits will find himself slipping at every step on the path reaching the Pleasure of Allāh ta'ālā.

It is an act extremely liked by Allāh ta‘ālā as it represents the height of humbleness and submission to the Creator. It is for this reason it has been termed the “essence of ‘ibādah” and even simply “ ‘ibādah”. Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam states:
