Muhasaba

Muhasaba by Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad

Muhasaba is a term in the Sunna: ‘Call yourselves to account before you yourselves are called to account.’ And the ulema say that the first step in tawba is muhasaba. We need, as individuals and as societies, to stop gobbling for a moment, and to think about how we have recently spent our time. At the end of each day, to take a minute looking back, to see what we would rather forget. And when we see those things, the desire for tawba begins.
