Contents4 DVD's Lecture Summary :-

---23: Breaking the Two Desires (Kasr al-Shahwatayn). Humans love God by their nature, but they are also weak when confronted by two powerful passions: gluttony and sexual desire. The Imam shows how to control these, and how to deal with one's natural appetites in a wholesome and balanced way.

---24: The Vices of the Tongue (Afat al-Lisan). The tongues is small, but can lead to immense calamities. Here spiritual guidance is offered on how to confront our habits of lying, slander, self-praise, mockery, obscenity, backbiting and bearing false witness.

---25: Anger, Hatred and Envy (Dhamm al-Ghadab wa'l-Hiqd wa'l-Hasad). Discusses rightful and egotistical anger, and the forms of ugly dislike and envy of others and their good fortune, stressing the value of mildness and the forgiveness of others.

---26: On Worldliness (Dhamm al-Dunya). The world is Allah's creation, and as such is a sign of His goodness. But human beings all too easily love it for its own sake, and gorge themselves on pleasures which are of no benefit to their spiritual and moral lives. The result is a heart filled with stress and jealousy, rather than serene gratitude.
