In a society where submission to the lower desires of the self is encouraged and a social norm, it is very easy for the believer to forget the ultimate purpose of existence, lose focus and go astray. No one is immune to this condition because anyone at anytime can have their heart corrupted. This Friday khutbah is a reminder about the importance of guarding the essence of our spiritual being, the heart. Imam Mokhtar Maghraoui uses this forum to introduce a five part weekend seminar in Orlando, Florida dedicated to the topic “In Pursuit of Peace and Happiness”. In this first session, he discusses three characteristics or ailments, which if present within our hearts, will lead us on the path to self-destruction and failure. He also touches upon the difference between secular psychology of the self and the Islamic psychology of the self.
