Consider Ayat 69 Of Surat Ankabuti
« on: November 04, 2017, 04:43:58 PM »
  :salam:

In Ayat 69 of Surat Ankabuti of the Holy Qur'an (29:69), Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says:--

   "AS FOR THOSE WHO STRIVE IN US, WE SHALL GUIDE THEM TO OUR PATHS"

 Explaining this Ayat, Imam Ibn Qayyim, may Allah be Merciful to him, said that "the most compulsory form of Jihad is Jihad against the ego (nafs); against unbridled passions (hawa); against the Devil (shaytan); and against being worldly (dunya). Those who wage Jihad against these 4, in obedience to Allah, shall be guided by Allah to the path of His good pleasure which in turn will lead to His Paradise. Those who neglect Jihad will be veiled from guidance to the degree they forsake Jihad."

 So, let us strive to overcome temptations, casual desires and/or the devil's whisperings. May we be blessed with Taufiq to internalize Islamic Teachings through acts of worship and devotion such as Prayer/Sallat, fasting, Zikr, alms-giving etc
