Elevating the deen of Islam over personal desire is something that most every sincere and conscious Muslim strives to do. A type of self-purification which requires struggle and commitment, very few possess the knowledge or willingness to begin the journey down such a path. In this session Imam Suhaib Webb lays out the starting point for such a journey, which is the fitrah itself. He suggests that you should first have a clear sense of who you are and what your purpose in life is. Once this takes place your desires should naturally align themselves or even become subservient to the desires of the Lord of the worlds, and your material concerns should be replaced with spiritual concerns. And to this end the imam suggests some of the primary concerns we should have as Muslims such as teaching our kids the sunnah about love and sex, sending our kids to Islamic schools, memorizing some Qur’an and ahadith, associating with dynamic Muslim communities, and mastering a secular subject.
