“When the problem is with you, you have to address the problem, which is you.
You have to enhance your understanding. You have to enhance your perceptions. Open your mind to different possibilities.
And we teach this. There is a way to do this. With Zikr of Allah, you do cleansing on your nafs (person/alter ego), so you will have a better eyesight and better understanding…
… so you can base your stipulation on the real truth.
As a scientist, observe the being as is.
You cannot make the truth as you want it to be. Truth is not going to suit you. That is why it is the Truth. Reality.
We have to accept the truth and base our actions on the solid foundation of the truth.
Allah has created us for this purpose.
But not by force. No forcing. No compulsion. You still volunteer and be willing to accept your duty that you are created for.”
