between us and Allah Ta'ala
Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
one weakness, from many weaknesses, is that we look
at our achievements and successes with an eye of
vanity and conceit.
gaze falls on our efforts – that we are the
ones who made the effort. We attribute our success
and our achievements to our efforts, our sacrifice
and our hard work.
generally follows is a desire to announce and to
boast – to publicize and make known.
nafs asserts itself. It wants acknowledgement. It
wants to be credited.
