â€œI have been sent only for the purpose of perfecting good morals.â€
This comprehensive book gives a detailed description on what constitutes good moral character. It stresses the importance of the reform of self. If each member of this Ummah focuses on bettering him/herself, then the new age of Islam can come to life where the world will be filled with God fearing people. Islam gives its followers a clear guide for individual reform where man can, with the help of God, reach the pinnacle of humanity.
...a purified and noble self will perform the responsible task of stitching the tears in the garment of the environment and repairing it. It will try
to enhance society's greatness and decency. It will consider it its responsibility to bring in regularity in the use of
power, and to remove all kinds of defects from the government.
The achievement of Islam is this that it helps man fully, so that he may be able to make his nature strong and firm, he
may make its rays more bright and more illuminating, and in its guidance and leadership may successfully complete his
long journey of life....the reform of the self is the first foundation pillar of the supremacy of virtue in this life.
If no attention is paid to the reform of the individuals (selves), this world becomes the dominion of the dark forces,
men's present and future will be ruled by corruption. That is why Allah says:
â€œVerily, Allah will never change the condition of a people until they change it themselves. But when Allah wills a
people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, beside Him any to protect. (Ra'ad.. 11)â€
