Spiritual Training [Tarbiya] is used in the sense of teaching [ta‹līm] that nurtures the mind as well as in the sense of purification [tazkiya] that nourishes the heart and the soul. About the Mission of our beloved Prophet (God bless him and give him peace), God (Exalted and Almighty is He) said in the Holy Qur’ān: “He it is who has sent unto the unlettered people a messenger from among themselves to recite to them His verses, to purify them, and to teach them the divine book and wisdom—whereas before that they were indeed, most obviously, lost in error.” (62: 2)
