at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

Distance from the Nafs

Maulana Gangohi (Rahmatullah Alayh) tells,

“Once my teacher Maulana Shah Abdul Ghani Sahab (Rahmatullah Alayh) said, exactly as distant one gets from the Nafs one gained nearness to Haq Ta’ala.”

[“Hikayaat-e-Auliya” by Hakeemul Ummat Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahimullah)]

    Dear jafar, i think that you can control your nafs by keeping prayers, think of Allah often, remember Him, and evaluate whether what you intend to do is what the Prophet (pbuh) has taught.

    In your struggle against your nafs, it is only you who can fight it and no one else. Go to Allah for help, for He is the only one who can help You. The best i can say is, in remembering Allah and doing what He commands will be how you can control your Nafs.

    i hope you find this beneficial.

    May the Light of Allah be with you.
