Enemy Within: Voice from inside...

Assalamu'alaikum...

War...It's a short, simple word with huge implications...
In war, we fight with our enemies...
To fight effectively, we need to identify the enemy's weak points and attack it...

But what if the enemy is from within?
Within our own selves...
How do we handle it?

Self-destruct?
I don't think so...
You think?

In my opinion, our own selves can be our worst enemy...

I've been at war with my own self since the day I was born (though I can't remember any bit of it)

This war never ends...
I fight...
I lost...
I lost...
I lost...

Am I a loser for losing against my own self?

Am I a winner if I win against my own self?

How big of an army do I need to win?

Can I win?
Will I ever win?

Salam,
Teruskan ya akh. Kita semua mengalaminya...

Ingatlah promise Allah ta'ala:

Adapun orang yang takutkan keadaan semasa dia berdiri di mahkamah Tuhannya, (untuk dihitung amalnya), serta dia menahan dirinya dari menurut hawa nafsu; Maka sesungguhnya Syurgalah tempat kediamannya.
[an-nazi'at:40-41]

wallahua'lam
segala puji hanya bagi Allah, Tuhan sekalian alam
