Sajid Umar – Character vs Personality

A snippet from ‘Purification of the Soul’ lecture that was presented at Ra’s Alkhaimah 3 Day Ramadan Retreat in United Arab Emirates.

Sheikh Sajid discusses the different components that we are made of; a heart, a body, a mind, a nafs and a ruh (soul) and elaborates on the difference between the character trait and the personality trait of a person.

In Islam we are taught to look at and give precedence to the character of a person – the implicit, rather than the explicit- personality and perceptions we portray.
