Corruption is not just a religious problem but it is a social problem for secular societies as well. In these lectures Dr Bilal Philips has tried to communicate to both muslims and non-muslims about the true source of corruption which according him lies in heart of a man who has been lured by Satan. Therefore removal of corruption is only possible by purification of heart which can not be done without fighting Satan.
