Hadhrat Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh mentioned a very valuable point in a recent lesson of Hadīth. He said,
''Shaytān and nafs (inner self) lead us to believe that there are certain actions we just can't do and certain actions which are impossible to stay away from e.g. waking up for fajr salāh, controlling one's gazes, refraining from drugs etc. When we fall into this deception then we will make no effort either. We should embed in our minds that we have the ability to carry out all the "do's" and stay away from all the "don'ts" of sharī'ah. If we do this then we will at least try. The more we try, the more our spiritual strength will increase and the stronger we will become in combating shaytān and our nafs to acquire the pleasure of Allāh ta'ālā."
