Every soul yearns for a sense of purpose, light, and truth. Having these illuminates the soul; bringing contentment, wakefulness, and a profound sense of wealth. It is important for each of us to have these faculties within our soul so that the spirit and the soul will remain alive and well.

There are quite a few things we can do to gain or remain spiritually connected with our Lord, our soul, and others.

*Belief in God (From Him you came, It is to Him you will return.)
*Prayer (Is your personal time with your Lord, a time of repentance and/or gratitude.)
*Reading of your Holy Qur'an (Gives guidance and instruction to the straight Path.)
*Religious Practices (Is implementation towards a straight path)
