51. He used to speak to his Nafs

The blessed son of Imām A’am Abū anīfaĥ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه, Sayyidunā ammād رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ تَعَـالٰی عَـلَيْـه has narrated: I once went to the house of Sayyidunā Dāwūd āī رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ تَعَـالٰی عَـلَيْـه, I heard a voice from inside the house, ‘O Nafs! You desired carrot, I fed it to you. Now you desire for dates. By Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! I will never feed you dates.’ Saying Salām when I entered, I saw him alone. (In other words, the great Shaykh was addressing his Nafs). (ibid, pp. 101)

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on them and forgive us without accountability for their sake!

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب           صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد

52. He vowed not to eat vegetable

Sayyidunā Mālik Bin aygham عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡاَ کۡرَم has stated, ‘Once I saw a vegetable while passing through a market in Basra. My Nafs demanded me to eat the vegetable that night. I swore not to eat that vegetable for forty nights.’ (ibid, pp. 101)

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on him and forgive us without accountability for his sake!

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب           صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
