Author: Ibn al-Jawzi

Every soul has the capacity for good and evil. To discipline the soul is to train your most basic human instincts, desires and needs to serve your only true purpose of worshipping Allah in all aspects of your life.

Ibn al-Jawzi offers a practical guide on self-discipline for the Muslim navigating everyday life.

"Know that all the facets of mankind's disposition are for their benefit - either directly such as the desire for food, or indirectly by preventing harm, such as the capacity for anger. However, when these natural impulses are not moderated it culminates in harm. If the desire for food is excessive it leads to gluttony. Similarly when anger is uncontrolled it leads to transgression. The aim should be to achieve equilibrium of the soul, to allow the faithful to approach God without distraction."
