And at the time Shahwat, it is cattle; and at the time of satiety, it becomes like Pharaoh; and at the hour of hunger, it is mad dog.
The Nafs of the Arifeen has [following] four features:
At the time of sin, it is vigilant; at the time of hunger, it is patient; in state of satiety, it is generous and at the time of Shahwat, it remains sensible.
[O True-Seeker] Lo! If, at the time of perpetration, it is said to the Nafs that: "O Nafs! Allah Almighty is the All Present; by doing this, you will get deprived of the Intercession of the Prophet of God Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam; you will face a bitter time at the hour of (the throes of) your death; you will face the Punishment of grave; the Munkir-and-Nakir will question; you will be blazed in the Fire of Hell; your deeds of virtue and sins will be weighed in the Beam Balance (Scale) and you will have to face the Reality of your Account (Deed Manifest); you will have walk over the Pul-Siraat; on your success in the Trial, you will be given the pleasures of Heaven (and) upon bringing the Waseela [of the Divinely Ilm], you will be honored with the Didaar of Allah Almighty". In short, whatsoever advice or warning is given to the Nafs, the Nafs does believe any and does not refrain from sin. However, the Zikr of Lord [the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) ] can keep it away of sin and certainly, it does!
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
Zikr of Allah Almighty is the evidence of Eimaan and is displeasure against Nifaaq and is like a fortress against Satan and is the likeness of an asylum against the Fire of Hell.
The Prophet of Allah Almighty said that the Zikr of Allah is sign of the identification Eimaan and is the abhorrence against Nifaaq of the Nafs and is like a fort of protection against Satan and is refuge against the Fire of Hell.
