The believer can sanctify, or purify, himself by performing actsof obedience, avoiding sins, refining his heart, and keeping away from unlawfully gained money. Allah Almighty praises such attitude saying:

{He who who purifies it has succeeded,And he who corrupts it has  failed}

[Surat ash-Shams: 9-10] 

AllahAlmighty clarified to Mūsa (Moses) (peace be upon him) the purpose behind sending him to Pharaoh, namely to purify himself by sanctifying Allah Almighty:

{Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.And say to him: “Would you purify yourself,and let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?”}

[Surat an-Nāzi‘āt: 17-19]

Hence, none can attain success without this spiritual purification.

{He who purifies it has succeeded,And mentions the name of his  Lord and prays}

[Surat al-A‘la: 14-15]

Moreover, Allah Almighty removes purity from the wrongful nations.The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said:

“Indeed, Allah does not purify a nation where the weak do not take their rights from the strong.”

[ Narrated by Al-Bayhaqi in Al-Sunan Al-Kubra;Sahīh (authentic)]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is also authentically reported to have said:“How could Allah purify a nation where the rights of the weak are not taken from the strong?!”

When Abu al-Dardā’ senta letter to Salmān al-Fārisi (may Allah be pleased with both of them) inviting him to leave Iraq for the sacred land, Salmān sent him a reply eloquently clarifying the concept of sacredness saying: “Indeed, the land does not purify anyone. Rather, it is one’s deeds that purify him.”

Glory be to the One Who ceaselessly gives sustenance and grants the wishes of His creation.

The worlds depend on Him and feel assured about His provision.

O Allah, the All-Glorious, the Most Holy, we implore You to purify us, forgive our sins, and show mercy to us, O the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!
