Watch yourself | Sh Abdul Hakim Murad
We have to watch ourselves. We have to watch the heart and beware of the heart’s treachery and arrogance. Watch it as the cat watches a mouse hole. Watch out for its movements because the heart has within itself, these negative tendencies, and we have to watch them. And each time a negative tendency pops up we have at least to be aware of it – and that is the beginning of the process of healing. If you are not even aware that you are sick, it is very unlikely that you’re going to find out what kind of medicine it is that you should be taking. So step number one is to admit that we are in a mess.
– Shaykh Abdul Hakim Murad
