I think non-Muslims and especially MUSLIMS (the ones that are shown on TV yelling and screaming all of the time) can benefit a great deal from this book.
I should also mention that this book is the outgrowth of a 24-tape audio lecture on the same poem. The audio was also done by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf.
This book dose not have the Dos and Donts, it gives you options and its your choice to follow them or ignore them. You wount go to hell if you Ignore thim but it will affect your life.
The book deals with subjects such as hate and envy and how to will affect you socially and spiritually. When you clense your heart from such sickness your body will be free.
Anwwyas it is a really really good book to read.
For anyone that wants a non-bias view of Islam should read this book.
This is a must read for everybody seeking to better their lives.
The book begins by introducing the concept that our hearts are the light by which we can 'see' and therefore it is our hearts which we use to discern between truth from falsehood and right from wrong. It follows that the healthier or more purified our hearts become the brighter the light and the more we are able to see the reality of this life, whilst the more diseased or impure our hearts become the more indiscernible truth and falsehood become until we are completely are blind and have no senses towards good and evil. We are taught that the purification of the heart is achieved by trust in God, and doing good deeds for His Pleasure, whilst the heart becomes more diseased as we disbelieve and/or disobey God (i.e. sin). Some noteworthy Ayahs of the Quran are:
As a day [i.e. Day of Judgment] in which neither wealth nor children shall be of any benefit [to anyone], except one who comes to God with a sound [or pure] heart. (Surah 26 Ayat 88-89)
Have they not travelled in the land, and have they hearts with which to feel and ears with which to hear? for indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind.
(Surah 22 Ayat 46)
That He (God) may make that which the Devil promises a temptation for those in those whose hearts is a disease, and those whose hearts are hardened - LO! the evildoers are in open shism. (Surah 22 Ayat 53).
Following the Introduction the book proceeds to the main text which details the spiritual diseases of the heart that humans can suffer from and how to treat and cure them.Read more ›
