What is the concept of self-examination? What is the reason that the focus on this concept is mainly seen in most of ethical books such as Imam Khomeini's interpretations?

Answer : The concept of self-examination does actually connote individual's examination regarding his own deeds. There is a lot of emphasis on the mentioned issue in the Islamic ethics, which says humankind should examine his own deeds before he is examined in the present of God. He should separate his good and evil acts and do penance for each evil one. If he has the intention to continue the god deeds, he is to want it heartily from God. In ethical thinking of Imam Khomeini, the concept of self-examination is considered as one of the most important essentials of spiritual travel and self evolution of a person who has adopted the rout of prosperity.
