The major impediments and dangers to one’s spiritual purification must be recognized by the Muslim. He must be aware of them so that he may protect himself from them.
When we wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, we see ourselves. Little wonder, then, that we spend much money on cleaning our bodies and homes, but we often take little care of our souls.
In Islam, knowledge of one’s soul is the point of departure for its purification given that an authentic life of piety emanates from a sanctified soul absorbed in the remembrance of God. Muslim theologians held the soul to be a secret of the Divine.
