*Some guidelines to guard onesself spiritually against the many evils and vices around*

- Mufti Ebrahim Desai

a.) Be punctual in performing the five daily Salaat. A male must ensure he performs Salaat with Jamaat in the Musjid.

b.) Recite some portion of the Quraan daily. It is also important to read the translation and commentary of the Quraan daily. We recommend the following English translations: Muhammad Pickthall (Translation); Muhsin Khan (Translation); Tafseer-e-Usmani (with commentary); Daryabadi (with commentary); Maariful Quran (with commentary). NB. Any translation of the Noble Qurãn must be accompanied with the Arabic text next to the translation.

c.) Recite the following three Tasbeeh at any time in the morning or evening: 100 times Istighfaar, 100 times third Kalimah, 100 times Durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam). The above three Tasbeehaat should be read in isolation and with concentration.

d.) Always display good character even in front of ones enemies.

e.) Avoid intermingling with the opposite gender and lower ones gaze. Do not let the mind and heart be polluted with the form and shape of the opposite gender. That is death to spirituality.

f.) Stay in the company of the pious. Bad company is detrimental to ones Imaan and character.

g.) Be conscious of life after death and accountability in the court of Allah Ta'ala.

h.) Keep in touch with reliable Ulema. Make their Ikraam and seek their guidance.

We hope if one follows the above points, he/she will be protected from the tricks of Shaytaan
*إِنْ شــآءَﷲ*
