of the sun, the ground made of copper, and being barefoot whilst feeling the intensity of hunger and thirst! May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ protect us! The obedience to Nafs may lead to tragic consequences.
His Nafs took him to Hell
Two years after the death of his father, Sayyidunā Abul Ḥasan Rāzī رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ تَـعَـالٰی عَـلَيْه had a dream in which he saw his late father wearing clothing made of tar. When he asked his father the reason of wearing the clothing of the people of Hell, his father replied, ‘My beloved son! My Nafs took me to Hell. Save yourself from the deception of Nafs.’ (Mukāshafa-tul-Qulūb, pp. 20)
O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Save us from the mischief of Nafs! Grant us the ability to apply the Madanī guard to our stomach for Your pleasure! Bless us with the enthusiasm to have patience with hunger and thirst! Protect us from the hunger, thirst and extremely severe conditions of the Day of Judgement. Save us from the insufferable torment of Hell!
آمِيۡن بِجَاهِ النَّبِيِّ الۡاَمِيۡن صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهِ وَسَلَّم
