For the third installment in a series dedicated to introducing the science of “purifying the self”, Imam Mokhtar covers one of the most fundamental aspects of this subject and that is the ability of Shaitan to corrupt our hearts and the need for us to be on constant guard against this. Ironically, the way we allow him to corrupt our hearts is through the very character attributes that WE choose to have and especially how we utilize our seven bodily senses (the eyes, ears, tongue, hands, legs, stomach, and sexual organs). This thought-provoking lecture should inspire one to re-examine his or her own daily conduct and to question and investigate his or her own inner state that results from this use (or misuse). This lecture is necessary for all Muslims because it is essential for the ‘nafs’ (the core of the human being) to attain a purified balance so that one can have a sound state of the mind which leads to sincere and wholesome conduct.
