    Fight Against Your Ego.

    As-Salaam alaykum,
    The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-

    "The fighter against unbelief is he who fights his ego in obeying Allah." [Tirmidhi, Tabarani, Ibn Majah]

    Sufyan al-Thauri, may Allah be pleased with him, said: "I never dealt with anything stronger against me than my own ego; it was one time with me, and one time against me"... and Yahya Ibn Mu'az al-Razi, may Allah be Merciful to him, said: "Fight against your ego with the 4 swords of training:- eat little, sleep little, speak little and be patient when people harm you... then the ego will walk the path of obedience, like a fleeing horseman in the field of battle."

    Re: Fight Against Your Ego.

    Come on sis Smoke,

    Every thread i've clicked on there's 'beef' between you and brother Timi Scar .

    Am sure you are joking around and don't mean no harm but you may unintentionally hurt someone's feelings.

    Back to the topic - Ego. Pharaoh fed his ego too much and it blinded him from the truth. Subhana Allah. A scary trait.

    May Allah swt save us from the bad traits Ameen.
    Fight Against Your Ego.

    Pain and hardships allow you to grow spiritually Alhamdulilah so smile when a so called calamity befalls upon you.
    Alhamdulilah Allah swt is the greatest.

    Brother Timi Scar has a direct approach and says it how it is.

    Adding humour and sarcasm to his comments.

    Others express themselves in a 'gentle' way. Not that brother Timi isn't gentle. I hope am not getting myself in a mess here.

    We all have our own style of expressing ourselves.

    Your new but you'll pick up on everyone's personality and character in sha Allah.

    Hopefully no negativity.

    yeh but I can tell deep down he isn't like that, those that are usually the most sensitive people that have turned bitter/cold seeing the world - so you have to make them see it's not how they think it is - ok @Timi Scar

    Re: Fight Against Your Ego.

    I wish that mods can do something to this endless "smoke this - timi that"- mess. I am tired to report when you go off topic as it happens every five seconds.

    Please report each others posts, don´t start same this-that chatting again and again. We others really aren´t interesting.

    From Occupied Palestine:

    We have suffered too much for too long. We will not accept apartheid masked as peace. We will settle for no less than our freedom.

    Re: Fight Against Your Ego.

    Ego can lead the nafs to so many other negative traits, the one which comes to my mind is pride - which itself leads to 'lesser' shirk.

    It was the ego which lead Iblis, the Pharaoh, the towns of the ancient prophets, Abu Lahab and so many others astray. Truly frightening because with the ego you no longer realise you are doing anything wrong. It can even afflict those Muslims who seem to be 'religious' (a word used very loosely), when they perform their worship not for Allah but for the people to see, and they believe themselves to be superior to others - dare I say ISIS have a major, major ego problem, killing anyone not good enough for them left, right and centre.

    Actually, when I think of it, it is the precise opposite of humility and submission - the very foundation of Islam. May Allah SWT protect us all from every being blinded by the 'ego'.

    Fight Against Your Ego.

    عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه : ـ
    مَن كانَ مُسْتَنًّا ، فَلْيَسْتَنَّ بمن قد ماتَ ، فإنَّ الحيَّ لا تُؤمَنُ عليه الفِتْنَةُ ، أولئك أصحابُ محمد - صلى الله عليه وسلم - ، كانوا أفضلَ هذه الأمة : أبرَّها قلوبًا ، وأعمقَها علمًا ، وأقلَّها تكلُّفًا ، اختارهم الله لصحبة نبيِّه ، ولإقامة دِينه ، فاعرِفوا لهم فضلَهم ، واتبعُوهم على أثرهم ، وتمسَّكوا بما استَطَعْتُم من أخلاقِهم وسيَرِهم ، فإنهم كانوا على الهُدَى المستقيم
    رواه ابن عبد البر في "جامع بيان العلم وفضله" (2/947ـ رقم 1810) ـ
    ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood said: “Whoever wants to follow a path, let him follow the path of one who has died, for the living are not safe from fitnah. I mean the Companions of Muhammad . They were the best of this ummah: the purest in heart, the deepest in knowledge and the most straightforward. Allah chose them to accompany His Prophet and establish His religion, so recognise their status and follow in their footsteps and adhere as much as you can to their example of conduct and attitude, for they followed true guidance.” [Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr in Jaami‘ Bayaan al-‘Ilm wa Fadluhu, 2/947, no. 1810]
