I am trying to thread the path of tassawuf but my nafs overpowers me sometimes. I know it’s a difficult path but think it’s the way for me. Please give me advice. Can I read something for strength to overpower nafs.
A`udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem:
Remember Surat Az-Zumar ayat 53: “Say: O My servants who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed Allah forgives all sins. Indeed He is the forgiving the Merciful.”
Do not despair but remember the Mercy of Allah and believe in the Shafa’ah of his Prophet (saws) and do your best to increase Love in your worship. recite La hawla wa la quwata illa billahi l ‘ali al ‘adheem’ 100x a day, and Ya Wadud 100x a day.
