On the other hand men with dead or sick nafs don't desire, create or develop anything. They snatch, steel or beg from others.
Everybody except Iblees praised Allah for creating man. Only Iblees objected to this wonderful creation of Allah by saying that man has nafs. Since that day he has made it his mission to fail mankind and always speaks bad about nafs. It's only the Iblees and his co-thinkers who talk bad about nafs. Always remember that Iblees was created for worship. All those who take up the same job follow his path and show the same kind of thinking about nafs and mankind. They motivate people to fight with each other and do fasad for nothing on earth. They never create or develop anything but they can destroy anything. Their brains work only for destruction.
