Something On Jihad-Nafs.

Post by Abu Fauzi on Thu Jan 03, 2013 5:33 am

Assalam alaikum,
Imam Jafar al-Sadiq, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Noble Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless and grant him peace, dispatched a contingent of the army to the battlefront. Upon their (successful) return, he said:--"Blessed are those who have performed the minor Jihad and have yet to perform the major Jihad". When asked, "What is the major Jihad"?, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, replied, "The Jihad Nafs (struggle against self)".

Against this background, if one could adorn himself/fill himself with 10 good/positive traits (known as Sifat Mahmudah) and rid himself of 10 bad/negative traits (known as Sifat Mazmumah), then he or she would win the war against self or Jihad-Nafs...and be rewarded handsomely by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

The 10 good traits we should adorn ourselves with are:---Taubat(repentance), Khauf (being fearful), Zikr-maut (remembering death), Mahabbah (love), Zuhud (living simply), Tawakkal (trust in Allah), Ikhlas (be sincere), Shukr (be grateful), Ridaa (contentment), and Sabr (have patience).
The 10 bad traits we should avoid and rid ourselves of are:---Gharab (Bad temper), Hasad (envy), Bukhul (being stingy), Sharrul-Ta'am (eating too much), Hubbul-Jah (loving to have power), Hubbul-Dunya (love of the world), Ujub (flattering oneself), Takkabur (pride), and Riya (show-off). Put these into practice, and you will see wonders.
Do accept my best wishes.
