A new excellent upload by Kalamullah, jazakummAllahu khayran to the brothers there.
May Allah SWT preserve them, protect them from Shayateen and grant them and their families a glorious Akhira.Ameen.
Had been looking forward to read this since ages.
Alhamdolilah, very excited about finding it online.
I started reading it a few minutes ago and I just couldn’t stop. It seems to quote a few times from the beautiful notes compiled by a student of Ustadh Khurram Murad’s, In the Early Hours, but I prefer this book more because it’s more academic.
It’s not heavy, very easy reading and is informative at the same time with brief proofs, mashaa’Allah. Very clear, engaging and logical. I personally think that now is a very appropriate time for everyone to read this book. And Allah SWT knows best.
Quoted from the book, pp.122 & 124:
As Islahi noted:
[Tazkiyah] does not rest contented with somehow bringing the soul to the right path, but over and above that , it strives to take it to ever-increasing heights of superiority. Tazkiyah does not stop at the stage where we learn a little about God and the Shariah conferred upon him by Him on man, but it is its endeavour that we may attain a true and firm knowledge of God and His Attributes. Tazkiyah does not keep before it as its goal that our habits be reformed to a certain degree but strives after the goal of making ourselves the embodiment of all beautiful traits of man’s character…Tazkiyah does not only demand that our soul may somehow be subordinated to the Commandments of the Shariah , but its real demand lies in breaking thus steed of our soul in such a way that it carries out the orders of God and His Apostle in the best possible manner…
Tazkiyah deals with all the hidden and apparent aspects of ourselves…Our thoughts, our apprehensions, our inclinations, our movements, our eating and our drinking, our engagements, hobbies, and interests, the daily routines in our lives , in short, no department and nothing that touches our lives is outside the pale of tazkiyah.
