Allah says, “Just as We have sent among you a messenger from yourselves reciting to you Our verses and purifying you and teaching you the Book and wisdom and teaching you that which you did not know.”
Shiekh Abdur Rahman as-Sa’di commented, “
“Purifying you” means: purify your morals and souls through nurturing them upon upright traits and cleansing them from wicked ones. For instance, purifying your heart from Shirk (worshiping others besides Allah) by means of implanting the seeds of Tawheed, purifying the hearts from showing off by means of instilling humility and humbleness, and from immorality to uprightness.
