Uncontrollable nafs’ is like a dog

Dogs are greedy and do not care about cleanliness

Barking and biting

Because of their greediness, dogs are always fighting for foods

Because of their filthiness, dogs devour carcass and dirt

Their nature to bark at people

Many would bit people and animal alike

Thus uncontrollable nafs’

Is like dogs





Nafs’ is greedy with its worldly wealth

World and its wealth are its struggle

Leading to fightings and confrontations

Uncontrollable nafs’ is prone to forbidden things

Which are filthy and disgusting

Cheating and lying

Stealing and bribering

Alcohols, free sosialisation, adultery, robbing

Barking i.e. sharp tongue

Such as bad mouthing, ridiculing, slandering other people

Also haste accusing, downgrading and cursing others

Just like the dogs

People got irritated and upset

Similarly with uncontrollable nafs’

Just like an angry dog.

this is a good reminder whenever we are about to give into the demands of our nafs. Inshallah I'll use this to remind myself about the true nature of our nafs.

May Allah, The Most Merciful, help us to fight our nafs purely for His Sake.

Do you put desire and greed in the same category?

Allah created man as his best creation. The big difference between man and other creations is that man has a nafs. With nafs, man desires to excell. Men with healthy nafs desire, create and develop. 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.
