“Vitiation” (habt) is one of the greatest obstacles for humans to receive recompense for their acts in afterlife. The insufficiency of correct human behavior following the acquisition of so many divine teachings, makes us ask about the causes of our inability to take advantage of those teachings and improve the quality of our life and dignity. The Quranic concept emphasizing our obligation to preserve the virtues bestowed by God through our acts against the pitfalls in the course of life till the Day of Judgment, a situation that will multiply God’s bestowal of grace and recompense, is a confirmation of this.
Habt shows itself in a variety of occasions, namely actions, attributes, knowledge, faith and belief, which are all damages that make the root, cause of the ineffectiveness of our divine learning in our mental and practical life, hence the necessity of dealing more seriously with the issue. The Holy Quran, as the most comprehensive source of religion, is an appropriate base for understanding the meaning of habt in order to avoid the damages mentioned by cultivating virtues such as honesty in belief, righteousness, purity of intention, and above all staying faithful to spiritual leaders.
