Lust Is Disordered Love

Lust Is Disordered Love

The Seven Deadly Sins in the Modern World

“The more one's love for Allah and His prophets increases, the more his heart is capable of love, the more needy for them he is, the more wrecked he is, the more distracted by the affair of love he is.” —Amir Sulaiman

“Jesus in the Arabic tradition said that love of this world is like drinking salt water. The more you drink, the thirstier you get until drinking it kills you.”—Hamza Yusuf

These conversations, filmed to capture their warmth and intimacy, shed light on how the sins manifest themselves within us, illustrate their devastating consequences on our culture, and elucidate their corresponding virtues for all of us who struggle with sin.
