Comments to eBook Purification of the Heart: Signs, Symptoms and Cures of the Spiritual Diseases of the Heart
Vuzahn
Shaykh Hamza Yusuf has taken a piece of the classical tradition of Islam and presented it to english speakers from all backgrounds beautifully. Great for the many muslims that are not able to get in touch with a spiritual guide or a spiritual path. Perfect for non muslims that want an even more encompassing insight into Islam in general and particularly the traditional sunni spiritual paths. Furthermore, this book shows us why God really isn't dead and is perhaps a great book for someone questioning, why bother with religion at all?
Stanober
This is an absolutely wonderful book...a GEM! Besides learning the fard (required knowledge) every muslim must know, this is also essential knowledge that is especially important in our times when life in general has become about being entertained at every second instead of living our purpose which is to serve the Creator. Seeking knowledge and thus perfecting the human character is extremely important. The information contained in this book is something that is extremely important and if absorbed and implemented with sincerity can Insha'Allah lead to having a cleaner heart when we stand before Allah on the day of judgement. The author explains a book written by Shaykh Muhammad Mawlud (May Allah have Mercy on him) which describes each disease of the heart and gives their respective cures. There are also beneficial prayers and information in the appendix. I highly recommend this book. May Allah bless Hamza Yusuf for writing this book!.
Yananoc
Excellent book. No matter one's religion if one is trying to be a better person, this is good. Also is an excellent example of Islamic thought.

As a Muslim, I say this a must read for every human being. Non-Muslims will like this book as well! Maybe just some terms will be unfamiliar, and some names cited will seem foreign but the core messages apply to all of humanity.

Don't think that you won't find things of value in this book; be humble (hehe) and ready to see the numerous flaws in you heart. This book is not limited to the 'big ones' only-- it covers many of the more minor diseases of the heart.

I feel that the whole book caused me to realize that I had been guilty of almost all of the mentioned deceases. I loved the fact that Allah(SWT) made my heart humble enough to understand that. This book won't blow you mind, but it will certainly prompt some interesting inner dialog. I gave it a four because it wasn't the iman booster I thought it's be. However, I did learn a lot and find some self soothing through the journey. I'd recommend it.
Asyasya
I had been meaning to read this for ages, but it took me so long to finally pick it up - I am usually one to dive into a fiction book or news articles, but never this type of book. However, I find myself loving this. So enlightening and I can't put it down at times. I genuinely feel inspired to improve myself, more aware of my faults but in the capacity that I can change and grow. Beautiful and I think everyone should read this.
Mardin
This is an absolutely amazing book. It goes through specific diseases of the heart, like envy and greed, etc. It defines each disease of the heart and then gives recommendations on how to treat these problems. This book, though grounded in Islamic theological sources, is relevant to anyone, Muslim or non-Muslim. All of the problems of one's heart are common to any human being. And these problems cause personal grief, despair and suffering in any person effected by them. Highly, highly recommended. I honestly haven't done this wonderful, brilliant book any justice with this brief review.
This book kicked off a quest to improve my spirituality. Would highly recommend if you need a jump start to soften your heart. One caveat, the language can be really flowery and intense which causes you to double-take and ask yourself what he meant and why. That can be a turn off for many people but I understand that the language is a device to talk about matters of the heart. Also an aside: problem-prescription style of the book is very useful. You don't have to read the book in one sitting because it works as a reference manual (I'd still recommend a full read because it gives you a bigger picture).

Also, both the physical version and the Kindle version are great in their adaptations.
