This is a bestselling book.

"If we examine the trials and tribulations all over earth, we'll find they are rooted in the human hearts. 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...

So, if you want to change our world, do not begin by rectifying the outward. Instead, change the condition of the inward.." - Excerpt by Hamza Yusuf, from the introduction to this book.

Purification of the heart is based on the poem known as “Matharat al-Qulub,” which offers a means by which spiritual purification can be achieved. 

The spiritual diseases of the heart addressed include: miserliness, love of the world, fear of poverty, anger, hatred, iniquity, envy, arrogance, fraud and more. The author firstly starts with a short poem on each spiritual disease; he then discusses their causes and offers cures. His teachings imply that purification is a life-long process, not something that is applied once and then forgotten.

This book offers an insightful introduction to the spiritual purification of the heart. Purity of heart never survives a passive relationship. Rather, it requires constant consideration. This book hopes to introduce to readers how that is done.
