The Subtle Nafs...

A dear teacher of mine was recently talking to us about repentance, and the subtle nature of the nafs that prides itself even in a state of tawbah... "how could I do this?...I'm better than that!" not just sheer regret out of having disobeyed Allah.

Allahu Akbar.

  2. Realize that the reason we are to make tawbah is because we acted contrary to the command of the One who Created us. Period.

    It is good that you have pointed to this Topic , it is right we are in Either Zikr or Ghafat or Ghaflah and Ghaflah in Hindi Means Financial Scandal or Scam and it is True if one were to see it in the Sufi Way it is Scandal wherein you have to Answer to the Almighty Allah as to what you did with the Time for Zikr .

    The worst is the Time of Sleeping or if someone is in Coma (Allah Forbid).

    What Then ???

    What is the Answer ???
