Is faced, however, on this Course human being is required.
(Saying of Allah reported by the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
Many donkeys have also been created in the appearance of the human being.
Lo! Nafs is like a Kaafir. Hence, if the companion of the Kaafir, exercises austerity, pietism, offers Assalaat (Prayers) and observes Fasting and recites the Holy Quran, then the Kaafir also does not create problem. However, when the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb is recited near the Kaafir or the Zikr is done in Jehr (aloud), the Kaafir gets irritated. In many instances it leaves his companionship.
[OPPOSITION OF THE NAFS-E-AMMARA]
Thus, the Masters of Ilm are not the adversaries of Nafs; but instead are the People of genuineness (and devotion) with Nafs.
Allah Almighty says: Enjoin you righteousness on mankind and while you yourself forget (to practice that)? And you are readers of the Scripture! Have you then no sense. (2:44)
[CONFOUNDING AFFAIRS FOR THE SEEKER]
The Station of the Seeker of God is the Ghairat e Uns (accustom to zeal), the Station of Hairat, greed and the Station of Hairat Fanaa. Therefore! [O True-Seeker] Be enlightened that the Hairat of Shirk etcetera arise due to the dominance of the contamination (Kasaafat) and eating Haraam morsel of food. [In such condition,] the Kaamil killing of Nafs is recommended through the Zikr that is, the sacred Darood should be read and Istaghfaar of God should be begged in abundance. And the Hairat of Tauheed is the outcome of the Hankering (with curiosity) of Didaar and the domination of the Ishq and Muhabbat. The cure for this is the scorching of Hazoor. And the Hairat of the ego is from the Station of Anaa. This is produced because of jealousy. Its treatment is seeking a lot of Istaghfaar. And the Hairat of the fond (Uns) arises from the Station of Mahbubiyat of his highness the Overlord of World Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. [In such condition,] it is a must that the Muraqiba should be exercised very much so that the neglectfulness may leave the body of the Seeker. And the Hairat of the Greed is from the Station of Khannas Khartoum. Its remedy is this that the Majlis of the People-of-Allah (Ahl-e-Allah) must be joined and (one should) see the People-of-Graves (Ahl e Qaboor) so that, through the lesson of death, the Darkness of his heart can be dispelled.
