Preface: The first part of this book was printed and published inbut in such a limited number that it could not meet the demands of eager readers. Later on events took such a turn that a second edition could not be published as desired and the remaining two parts I had promised my readers could not be completed for want of time.

And now that the second part had been complete I entrusted. Spirituality and piety are not ends in themselves. In fact they are worthless unless they are means to a higher goal. The goal must go beyond spirituality to righteousness.

Spiritual disciplines are vitally necessary to achieve righteousness. Bible study, prayer, church attendance, evangelism, are necessary for Christian growth, but they cannot. It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, and each and every act of obedience to Allah, etc.) that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west (in prayers); but Al-Birr is (the quality of) the one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the.

And the [best] outcome is for the righteous.” [Quran 83]. Clinging to righteousness and avoiding sin is not just about worshipping One God without partner through conventional rituals.

It goes far beyond that to one’s moral and mannerly behavior, taking heed of one’s conscience, and seeking with one’s heart. Part 1: Righteousness defined by revelation and reason. This website is for people of various faiths who seek to understand Islam and Muslims.

“It is not righteousness that you turn your faces toward the east or the West [in prayers], but righteousness is he who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the Angles, the Book, and the Prophets, and he who gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to kinfolk, to orphans, to the needy, to the wayfarer, to those who ask, and he who sets slaves.

Righteousness When Only God Sees. Several observations concerningthe thesis statement for this section, are appropriate before we approach the following paragraphs of the passage in more detail.

Jesus reminds us that true piety means impressing God alone-living our lives in the recognition that God knows every thought and deed, and it. Clinging to righteousness and avoiding sin is not just about worshipping One God without partner through conventional rituals.

It goes far beyond that to one’s moral and mannerly behavior, taking heed of one’s conscience, and seeking with one’s heart. Part 2: Sin is what bothers the conscience and is shameful to the righteous heart., Clinging to righteousness and avoiding sin is not just.

“Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who.

Righteousness is the quality or state of being morally correct and justifiable. It can be considered synonymous with "rightness" or being "upright".

It can be found in Indian religions and Abrahamic traditions as a theological example, from various perspectives in Hinduism, Christianity, and Judaism it is considered an attribute that implies that a person's actions are justified.

True piety (or righteousness) does not consist in turning your faces towards the cast or west but truly pious is he who believes in God and the last day and the angels and revelation, and the prophets; and spends his substance upon his near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer, and the beggar, and for the freeing of human.
