The Blissful Home
By Dr. Abdul Hameed Zafar
Topic– The importance of purification of self and its source and its benefits
A blissful home is a great blessing from Allah سبحانه و تعالى. It is our peaceful sanctuary in which we retreat from the hardships of this life. Its fabric is the Qur’an and the Sunnah – a foundation for developing and cultivating eeman, ikhlaas and ihsan. Allah commands believing men and women to run the affairs of their homes in accordance to the rules set out by Allah and He has promised them a good worldly life and a great reward in the Hereafter in proportion to ones level of righteousness.
The Blissful Home is a series of lectures on establishing an Islamic Family Household by Dr. Abdul Hameed Zafar, which can be accomplished by following a few useful guidelines, centered around instituting that which is good and beneficial and removing that which causes evil or harm.
The objective of the program
“Tazkiyatu nafs” (purification of the soul) is a Quranic terminology. In Islamic terminology, “Tazkiyah” means to keep oneself away from those things which the Quran and the Sunnah state as forbidden, disgraceful or abhorrent.
Thus protecting oneself from the corruption of sins and blameworthy deeds, and to beautify it in the light of the Quran and Sunnah through deeds which are praiseworthy and beloved to Allah
Therefore “Tazkiyah” cannot be achieved until the heart is cleansed of all spiritual ailments, sinful desires, and vice
Points to remember:
“Tazkiyah” is one of those important matters which Allah sent his Messengers for:
- How to cleanse the soul?
- How will the soul achieve this status?
- What are the means which lead to it?
- This program has been organized for these objectives
