The suffering of the world is spoken in terms of wars, starvation, hatred, competition, and the struggle of the survival of the fittest. However, all of this suffering originates in the human heart. The soundest of hearts was that of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) who, through his purity and singularity of intention, transformed the world. His teachings remain, and the challenge is ours to learn them and transform our hearts, thereby transforming the very world we live in.
This CD set is based on a 12-week course taught by Hamza Yusuf at the Islamic Study School in Hayward, California in the Fall of 1998 which takes the student step by step through Imam al-Mawlud’s brillant text, Matharat al-Qulub (Purification of the Heart).
