Who am I?

Who am I?

Sometimes we may feel that we are caught up in a whirlwind, losing who we are and losing sight of who we should be.

The Prophet sAllahu ‘alayhi wa salam said that our worst enemy is your nafs within in.

What is this nafs? It is the lower self that is in all of us and it is the component in you that combines the powers of desire and the calmness needed to combat this ego, this lower self.

This weakness is a strength because in recognising it, you recognise the strength, power and permanence of Allah swt.

“O peaceful nafs, return to your Lord, well pleased and pleasing (to Him) and enter among My slaves and enter My Paradise” Surah Al Fajr

Controlling this nafs is the greater jihad and He who knows himself knows his Lord. May Allah swt give us the strength and patience to improve ourselves and may He grant us refuge within Him
