2007-10-04 After Zohr
Amongst things that causes the Nafs to come crashing is Ujb (Vanity) and Pride. Do not regard your Nafs as pure. Jalaluddin Rumi's (rah) example of the snake catcher. Both the outward and internal is essential. Bring life into the heart. If we turn away from Allah, He will create others and they will not be like us.
