[O True-Seeker] Lo! The Nafs, at the times of satiety is Pharaoh that is, it starts arrogance and haughtiness; and does not remember Allah Almighty at the hour of hunger because at that time, it behaves like a mad dog as it does not gaze upon eating Halal, speaking the truth (Akal-ul-Halaal and Sidq-ul-Maqaal) and "Leave your Nafs and come up" .
And the Nafs, at the time of Shahwat, is nonsense, Jaahil, ignoramus about Ilm and insane because it does not believe Allah Almighty the All Present at the time of sin. Allah Almighty, no doubt, is always Present with human being but the slave, himself, is blind and astray. "And He is with you where so ever you may be" (57:4). In addition, the Nafs has misinterpreted "therefore flee unto Allah" (51:50) as "therefore flee away of Allah". Moreover, at the times of anger and Coercion (Qehar), the Nafs starts abusing with offensive and slang words. This is against [the Principles of] the Holy Quran.
And the Nafs, at the time of [dispensing] benevolence, behaves like Qaroon because doing Qeel-O-Qaal is the action of a Niggardly person (Bakheel) and niggardliness (Bukhal) is much dejected and inferior thing. Hence, either he should make the Nafs obedient in one attempt or kill it otherwise or should confine it like the jinn of Solomon through the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat). With the Ilm of Haziraat, the Nafs comes, caught and handcuffed, like a thief within an hour and its identification in the body is accomplished.
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
He, who identified his Nafs, he identified his Lord.
He, who understood his Nafs the mortal one, thus, he understood his Lord the Everlasting One.
Then reaches unto the Martaba of Die-before-death and sees the practical of "He brings forth the living from the dead, and it is He, who brings forth the dead from the living (6:95)
When this Martaba has revealed unto Nafs, (it) takes the Mushahida of the Ahwaal of life. Later on, it comes in the ties of deference and gives up all the greed and desire and Kufr and Shirk. All these Maratib are easy to reveal in one breath and to show in a one step by the Murshid-e-Kaamil the Aalim and the Aamil but it is very hard and difficult for the craven (and Imperfect) Seeker to sustain in focus in the body on the treasures of the Tasarruf of Lord, kingship, the Maratib of Ministry and the traveling through the Tabqaat from the moon to fish because, with the Khazana e Khurmi (treasure of freshness), such a comfort comes in the Qaalbi Qalb of the Nafs such that it cannot endure it at all and dies in a day and night.
