Why Should I Worship You O Nafs!

29th January 2011

Once, in Delhi, a Wali of Allah was heard saying : “ You are not my
ALLAH and I am not your servant. So why should I listen to you; why
should I obey you ?”

Those who heard these statements regarded them as statements of
Kufr. However, one sensible person asked the saint : “What do you
mean ?”.

The saint answered : “My nafs was inciting me to fulfil its desire. I
thus addressed my nafs and said : ‘You are not my Allah and I am not
your servant. I am a servant of Allah so why should I worship you?’ ”
