“Indeed, successful is the one that purifies it. And Indeed, failed is the one that neglects it” Surah: Al Shams, Verse: 9-10

A Path of Practicality
Salamu Alaykom wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

Allah,
Subhanah wa ta’ala says:
“Indeed, successful is the one that purifies
it. And Indeed, failed is the one that neglects it”
Surah: Al Shams, Verse: 9-10

We learn a lot of things from this ayah.
But first. What is the meaning of success ?

There are 11 ayahs in which Allah uses the term
“moflihoon” –> “successful ones”

In one of these ayahs Allah says:
“And let there be from amongst you a community
of people who invite for all that is good. Enjoining
what is good and forbidding what is evil.
And they are the successful ones”
Surah: Aal-e-Imran, verse: 104

“And those that follow the messenger, the illiterate
prophet that they find written with them in the
Torah and the Bible… who… and lift from them
their burdens and the shackles that were upon
them… they are the successful ones”
Surah Al-A’raf: verse 157
(it’s a long verse, so I quoted the parts relevant
to the point I will be making)

“Whosoever’s righteous deeds are heavy in the
balance, it is they who are the successful ones”
Surah Al Mo’minoon, verse: 102

So tazkiyah causes success.

And success is for those that call to ALL of
what is good and call against ALL of what is
bad. That’s a very comprehensive religion/deen
that we have there !

And so tazkiyah is anything that you do with
the intention of making you able to do ALL of
those good things and stay away from ALL of
those bad things. All with the intention for Allah.

Anything that stops success is not tazkiyah and needs
to be purified/extracted from your self.
(read: do tazkiyah on those things getting in the
way of success)

And this is a general principle because we know
that a muslim is required to be strong and that
we are rewarded for doing anything that is not haram
so long as our intention is for Allah.

So the doors of success in dunya can align with
the doors of success in the hereafter. So long
as they are not haram.

This is tazkiyah. It is the process of streamlining
all those bits out of the way so you can get
to success easier.
