Understand your enemy

إِنَّ النَّفْسَ لأَمَّارَةٌ بِالسُّوءِ إِلاَّ مَا رَحِمَ رَبِّيَ
The Soul is certainly prone to Evil, Unless my Lord bestows His Mercy
[Surah Yusuf, ayah 53]
Al-Abbâs Ibn al-Ahnâf said:
My heart calls me to what harms me
It multiplies my sorrows and pains,
How can I guard against my enemy?
When my enemy is within my ribs
al-Iqd al-Farid
Whoever defeats his own self can overcome any enemy. – Junaid al Baghdadi
