Goodness of character was the attribute of the Master of the Messengers, and was ever the most righteous action of the Truthful Saints [ siddiqun ]; in truth, it constitutes half the Faith, and is the fruit of the austerities of the pious and the self-discipline of the people of constant worship. Bad character is a mortal poison and a sure path to perdition and humiliating disgrace, open vices and foul practices which set a distance between man and the proximity of the Lord of the World, and induce him to follow the path of Satan the accursed, which matters are the gates opening into God's stoked-up fire, which rises over men's hearts , just as fait characteristics form gates opening from the heart into the delights of Heaven's gardens, and the presence of the Most Compassionate.

Foul characteristics are the very sickness of hearts and the diseases of souls, constituting an illness which deprives man of everlasting life, which thing stands no comparison with an illness which causes the loss of the corporeal life alone. For however carefully the physicians may establish the canons by which the body is cured, the ailments with which they deal lead only to the loss of this transient life: it is therefore a matter of greater priority to lay down the canons by which the illness of hearts are treated, such as conduce to the loss of the life eternal.

To learn this form of medicine is incumbent upon all men of sense, since there is not a single heart is free of diseases which, were they to be neglected, would redouble in strength, leading to disorders still more frequent and powerful. A bondsman thus needs to meditate in such a way as to learn the origins and causes of these sicknesses, and then to roll up his sleeves to treat them and set them aright. It is this treatment which God Exalted is He! In this Book we shall indicate a number of sicknesses of the heart, and provide a general discourse on how these are to be treated, without giving details of cures for specific ailments, since these will be set forth in the remaining Books of this Quarter.

Our present purpose is to review in an overall fashion how the traits of characteer may be refined, and to provide a preparatory method for this. In the course of this discussion we shall make use of the symbol of the treatment of the body, in order to render the matter more easily understood.
