The Two Wolves
Posted by almuqarraboon in Self-Development on May 14, 2011
One evening an old Sioux told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle inside is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.
One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Sioux simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Every gulp of air

“Every gulp of air that goes out in a cause other than the cause of Allah (SWT) will turn to sorrow and regret on the Day of Judgment. ”
