In this video, Sheikh Hussein Kourani discusses the verse [45:23] - {Have you seen him who takes his own vain desires as his god?} in light of the individual recognition of Islamic jurisprudence and morality - a truly important message for all of us as the media, modern way of life commercialized for primarily by the Western media and secondarily by the enslaved media around the world teach the average individual of the concept of 'survival of the fittest' without providing a moral code.

This is an origin of the Islamic argument that empiricism alone is not enough. Furthermore, the human being must humble himself and raise himself to not always follow his/her comfort zone and search for the comfort zone(s) of others in order to help those around him/her feel appreciated and recognized. Such a way of dealing with others is valued greatly in the religion of #Islam as the Prophet (pbuh) emerged to spread and affirm the morals of mankind.

The door to this morality is knowledge in Islamic jurisprudence. Knowing the rulings of Islam is the only way to reach your sublime. Allah (swt) sent Islamic jurisprudence in order to function as a methodology to reach His goal - which is in return your goal as a human being - [من عرف نفسه فقد عرف ربه].

We can see this emphasize in many traditions and hadiths.

Knowing our selves and our souls is the key to go further. As long as a person is not aware of his abilities and the capacity of his spirit he is not able to use them in the way of salvation.

This is a hadith from Imam Ali (as) : The most useful knowledge is knowing your self.
