Tazkiyah or the purification of the heart and soul is a significant part of Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ teachings and plays an essential role in all people’s lives. This Islamic fundamental cultivates people’s consciousness, character, spirituality, and morality. The traits of compassion, mercy, generosity, piousness, trustworthiness and more are consequential of tazkiyah and purified hearts.
Remembering Allah and contemplating His creation are gates to grow closer to God and upright. The heart—the place of the conscious—is the place to earnestly grow in the love of Allah, His prophets, and moralities. Dhikru-Allah, the recollection of Allah, learning and observing His attributes, and contemplating the universe are elements in the development and cultivation of tazkiyah–the society’s ship to advance and prosperity.
