Kill Your Ego

Servants ask Allāh ﷻ and He ﷻ grants more and more through His ﷻ attribute, Al-Karīm. He ﷻ grants endlessly. Those who reach the point of being forgiven reach their highest aspiration but the servant’s happiness makes shayṭān unhappy. It creates problems for him and the servant becomes hopeless. Man is oppressing his own soul. He can only be free when the ego is crushed. Then, no evil can be created, nor any devil followed. Only Truth can be seen. Man must not worry or be hopeless of Allah’s ﷻ Mercy. The Holy Qur’ān therefore prescribes: “Kill your selves (egos).”
