I loved the book so much such that when I misplaced the book and I thought I’ve lost it –it was for almost a year until I found it back– I was so distressed; especially at that time they haven’t reprint the book and everywhere is out of stock already.
Jul 11, Hafsa rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book has the potential to change your life–the way you think, the way you act, etc. I wish I had read yuwuf before or while I was in college–it would have saved me quiet a bit of grief. But better late than never.
No need to sit around the self-help section of Barnes and Nobles–this book pretty much has everything you need to improve your relationship with God and humankind.

Jul 18, Huma Rashid rated it it was amazing. A must-read for Muslims View all 3 comments. Apr 30, Imraan rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Purification of the heart is a responsibility of every Muslim. Either you are doing well and wish to safeguard your pure heart, or your heart is ill and requires purification.
If you think your heart is already purifictaion and doesn’t need purification, then your heart is most likely ill and needs the purification from the inherent arrogance. This is a wonderful book that I shall read again and again for it’s tremendous benefit!
Jun 03, Noor rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hamza Yusuf not only translates Imam Mawlud’s poem, but adds an insightful commentary that draws upon experiences with which we can all relate in this modern day and age. The chapters are bite-sized and all contain relevant references from the Qur’aan and Hadith that provide us with practical yuauf to our tribulations.
It emphasises the Islamic principle of starting with rectifying the self before wanti ‘Purification of the Heart” is easy to follow, well-structured and profound in its advice.
It emphasises the Islamic principle of starting with rectifying the self before wanting to change the condition of others around us. Although the book is easy in its format, I wouldn’t recommend that one reads it in a single sitting, as it is the kind of text that requires deep reflection.
Purification heartt a lifelong process, not a destination, so focusing on one or two chapters a day might puirfication encourage us apply the small changes to our lives. Covetousness, the desire to aggress and exploit, the longing to pilfer natural resources, the inordinate love of wealth, and other maladies are manifestations of diseases found nowhere but in the heart.
Audio Series • Hamza Yusuf – Purification Of The Heart • Muslim Central
Every criminal, miser, abuser, scoffer, embezzler, and hateful person does what he or she does because of a diseased heart. So if you want to change our world, do not begin by rectifying the outward. Instead, change the condition of the inward. It is from the unseen world that the phenomenal world emerges, and it is from the unseen realm of our hearts that all actions spring We of the modern world are reluctant to ask ourselves – when we look at the terrible things happening – “Why do they occur?
In so many ways, we have brought this upon ourselves. This is the only empowering position that we can take. It takes the reader through a well-known text from the Muslim tradition, and gives important commentary that is relevant to our day and to people of a variety of religious experiences.
After exploring religions at an early agehe converted to Islam at 18 set out a journey that would take him to places of study England, The United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Algeria and finally West Africa where he spent transformative period with Murabit al-Hajj, a master of the inner and outer sciences of Islam.
After a sojourn of ten years aboard, Hamza Yusuf returned U. Inhe co-founded the Zaytuna Institute in order to teach the traditional sciences of Islam to people in the West.
He is recognized today as one of the most influential voices for Islam in the West and has adviced several world leaders including the President of the United States and head of the Arab League.
Yusuf resides in Northern California with his wife and children. Oct 13, Aliya rated it liked it. A good book for self introspection not only for Muslims but also non Muslims. However, having said that the book has a major short coming in that it identifies spiritual diseases very well but does not always give adequate solutions for the cures.
I am not a proponent of Sufism and this book is seemingly geared for the Sufi reader, which is a flawed assumption. Spiritual ailments befall every single human alike, and it is not just the Sufi who seeks a cure from them.
As a pragmatic and non-mystic A good book for self introspection not only for Muslims but also non Muslims. As a pragmatic and non-mystical Muslim, I found that I was aware of most, if not all of the concepts presented in the book and even though it served to reaffirm many issues, I did not always see pragmatic spiritual excercises for betterment. I only came across prayers at the end of the book. The prayers mentioned are the standard prayers and I am afraid prayer alone does not do much unless one takes concrete steps to address spiritual ailments such as anger and sloth etc.
It is still a great book, especially for those who may not have studied the essence of religion otherwise. Oct 27, Sabrina Lye rated it it was amazing. Buku tazkiyatunnafs tak pernah tidak memberi kepuasan, namun buku ini ada yang berbeza. Penulis membawa sudut pandang yang berbeza dari segi olahan dan lontaran, cara kita perlu beradab dengan Tuhan.

Many are concerned with their physical looks and appearance. One knows how to consult a doctor when they are unwell.
