"We verily sent Moses with Our revelations, saying: Bring thy people forth from darkness unto light." — Holy Qur'an 14:5


:: Gem No. 7 from Kalāmē Mowlā ::

:: Defeat Your Lower Self (Nafs-i Ammaara) ::

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

"The great Lord of Lords, Mawlā 'Ali,—upon whom be the blessings of God, the King, the All High!—said that once the Prophet (blessings of God be upon him) send a party of his companions on a military expedition. On their return, when they came before his presence, he greeted them as men who had participated in a jihād-i asghar, or the smaller war in the cause of religion, and said they still has to take up the jihād-i akbar, the greater war. Whereupon they inquired from the Apostle of God, asking: "What is jihād-i akbar?" And he replied that the most glorious war is that which one wages against his own vile instincts (nafs-i ammāra). This is, indeed, the truth,—blessings of God be upon him who said this!" (Source: True Meaning of Religion, pp. 1-2)

In verse 60 of Kalāmē Mowlā, NOOR Mowlana Murtazā Ali (a.s.) has elaborated on the concept of struggle against one's lower self as follows:

Recited by Shafiq Rawji

Jēhād karnā kāfarsēnthee,
a kalāmmē hukam hay rabkā,
to badā kāfar hay nafsē ammārā,
sahee bujo bandē sabkā
To jees bandēnē nafsku(n) mārā,
usnē fatēh pāee donu(n) jahān,
jo koee tābē mankē rahyā,
to donu(n) jahānmē(n) huā pashēmān ......60


To wage Holy War against an infidel
is the command of the Lord.
But a greater infidel is your lower self (nafs-i ammāra),
Know this as true for all.
The one who has defeated the lower self,
has indeed achieved success in both worlds.
The one who surrenders to the lower self,
is miserable in both worlds. .....60
