‘Purification of the Soul’ by Jamaal al-Din Zarabozo [e-book]

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.

  1. Salam.I hope I find you in good health inshaAllah.I am looking for the e-book
    ‘Purification of the Soul” by Zaraboozo.May you kindly help me. I have checked on Islam House but the available copy starts from chapter 4.

    • Walaykumusalam warahmatullah,
      Pray the same for all Muslims.
      That’s right. It’s the same on Kalamullah. Perhaps that was done for copyright reasons as you can see here in contents that the chapters missing are important. Allah swt knows best. I am sorry but I don’t know of any online copy that has those chapters.
      -UmmS.
