According to the Holy Quran, human personality (self) has three possibilities:

1. Decay and disintegration: this is termed as ‘fujoor‘.

  فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا 

 Al-Quran Surah 91: Verse 8

2. Integration and preservation: this is termed as ‘taqwa‘.

3. Growth and development: this is termed as ‘tazkiya‘.

  

 قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَنْ زَكَّاهَا 

 Al-Quran Surah 91: Verse 9

The aim of life is to avoid decay and disintegration, and strive for integration, preservation, growth and development of the ‘self’.
