This is a story about an old man who explained to his young grandson one
evening after prayers, about a battle that was going on inside himself. The
grandfather said, "My child, the battle inside me is between two wolves,
one of whom is so evil, full of anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, hypocrisy, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false
pride, superiority and ego.
The other is so good, full of rememberance of Allah, faith, taqwaa, joy,
peace, love, compassion, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,
empathy, generosity, and truthfulness."
The grandson pondered for a minute and then asked: "Grandfather, which wolf will win the battle?"
The grandfather replied simply, "The one I feed"
