Alhamdulillah for people like Hamza Yusuf
The book is an eye-opening to the way Islam addresses a beautiful character, heart. It is eloquently written and a book that must be read several times.
Purification of the heart
This book written by shaykh Hamza Yusuf as a translation and analysis of the poem from the author is a very essential guideline and healing to hearts especially Muslims especially in this day in age of spiritual deficiency. It is challenging nevertheless very prudent just to be aware and cognizant of the diseases and cures of the heart. I have learnt a great deal from it ever since I took the class with shaykh Hamza in Hayward CA back in 1998 before the book was written and am still trying to make it a part of my life, pray that Allah makes it possible one day. I pray that Allah rewards both imams i.e. The author Of the poem and shaykh Hamza.
