Purification of the Heart & Soul, What You Need to Know Before You Begin to Reclaim Your Heart by Abdel Rahman Mussa
PURIFICATION OF THE HEART AND SOUL
Tazkiyah is purification. It is used synonymously to mean spirituality also. Tazkiyah is a truly amazing subject.
For me, it’s not just about how many times you say Subhan Allah or AlhamduLilah. Though – of course – that is important. But acting out subhanAllah, and not just saying it, is also important.

So tazkiyah is the process of becoming stronger by removing ‘impurities’ and by adding ‘sweeteners. If we look at the most beloved of creation, Mohamad, peace be upon him – what feats of strength did he show?
And he taught the companions… and he, peace be upon him, was the best of teachers… so what feats of strength and power did they show? And how do we learn from this? This book isn’t an academic study. Islam is not academic. It’s more than that, much more.
This book is written informally, with many stories. Some of the stories are obvious in their relation to the chapter and the content.
Some of them might not seem related, but they are. Stories are included because they provide the mind with anecdotes. It, the mind, can then derive principles at the unconscious level, then create new understandings and projections therefrom. The book aims to impart important concepts missing from the Muslim dialogue about tazkiyah.
Some of the concepts I’ll be discussing will fly in the face of many misconceptions currently held in this day and age… And this should be good news for you! What’s the point of reading something you already know when you can learn something new? So let’s begin
