A core teaching adapted for children from Book 3 of Ghazali’s Ihya: The Mysteries of Purity.
This video helps children understand Ghazali’s teaching about the Prophet’s(S) saying- “PURITY IS HALF OF FAITH”. This speaks not only of physical cleanliness, but also, and above all, of a heart that is clean of self-centered lower qualities- such as “not sharing, bad moods and not helping Mommy”.
In this video, narrated and acted out by children- 4 and 6 years old-we learn about a castle being prepared for The King’s visit. The castle is made to shine and be beautiful on the outside. The door is polished brightly. But inside the castle is trash and rubbish! If we are like the castle, are we ready to meet “The King”? Are we as beautiful on the inside as the outside? In this core teaching, we learn how children can easily understand the importance of inner purity, good manners and a beautiful character.
