Islahi Majlis  |  23-11-2015  |  A Saalik should go about Islah in a serious andorganised manner. Ilm/Knowledge is a necessary pre-requisite for the acceptance of Ibaadaah. When preparing for Ibaadah, one will have to look closely within oneself for defects (Akhlaqe Razilah-bad qualities) which prevent or dissipate good. Together with this introspection of the baatin (inside), one should take stock of the deficiencies in Zaahiri A’maal (outer deeds) – Qada Salah; & Qada Fasts etc. Many have made Taubah for this, but fail in compensating… and so, ‘the dirt’ remains. Clean up this dirt by making Fikr and Mujahadah.
