Spiritual purification (tazkiyah) was a core mission of the Prophet (peace be upon him) [al-Baqarah, 133]. Through it, the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) became models of excellence (ihsan) in their relationship with Allah and His creation. This seminar focuses on developing depth in worship and excellence in character. Topics covered include tazkiyah and ihsan in the Quran and Sunnah, spiritual development (tasawwuf), curtailing base desires (nafs), and growing the soul through a routine of regular dhikr and good company.
