At a Texas retreat with the theme of striving towards excellence, Imam Siraj Wahhaj teaches the high school and college students in attendance that they must be well-rounded individuals with a foundation rooted firmly in the spiritual aspect of themselves. And the key to this is focusing on one's heart... what exactly is the heart? what is the nature of the heart? and how does one protect the heart? In exploring these areas and discussing the significant role the heart plays in the life of the believer, the imam touches upon the issue of music, lowering the gaze, the sin of fornication and adultery, and women reciting the Qur'an in the presence of men.
