:: Repentance (al-Tawba) What is wrong action? How can we understand our damaged inner state, and repair it? The Imam explains that repentance consists of knowledge of the act, an emotion of sorrow, and a decisive inner and outward action that will erase the wrong action and help the spiritual wayfarer never to return to it.

:: Patience & Gratitude (al-Sabr wa’l-Shukr) We are made human by our ability to restrain our egos and cravings. We also experience states of overwhelming gratitude to our Creator.

:: Poverty & Abstinence (al-Faqr wa’l-Zuhd) Here the Imam celebrates the poverty of the Holy Prophet, and shows how a detached attitude to the things of this world is a precondition for inner calm and a stress-free life.
