About The Book

According to the teachings of al-Islam, the desires and appetites play a vital part in the makeup of every human being; they cannot be ignored. The children of Adam, unlike the angels, face the challenge in this life of mastering these forces within us. If we fail to do so, then we become the servants of our appetites and thus fall below the level of the animal kingdom.

The hallmarks and influences of a "civilizations" which in practical terms almost enforces the domination of human desires and lusts over the traditional belief in the need to heed one's consciences and principles and exercise restraint are to be seen all around us. So are the consequences, which are manifestly unhappy in this world, let alone the Next World.

The keys to a happy and fulfilled life are to be found in the guidance contained in the Holy Qur'an and in the Sunna of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad, whose lifestyle embodied a perfect balance between enjoyment and abstention. In this book a distinguished Egyptian writer presents an authoritative and compelling account of the wise and practical teachings of Islam on how to deal with lust and greed.

About The Author

Sheikh Abdal-Hamid Kishk (March 10, 1933 – December 6, 1996) was an Egyptian preacher, scholar of Islam, activist, and author. He was a graduate of the prestigious Al-Azhar University in Cairo and was known for his humour, popular sermons, and for his outspoken stance against music, restrictions on polygamy, and injustice and oppression in the Muslim world. (Sheikh Kishk is not to be confused with author and journalist Muhammad Jalal Al-Kishk (also Muhammad Galal Al-Kushk) who gained some notoriety for his ideas concerning the nature of erections and sex between males in heaven.)
