Description from the publisher:
'Stay cautious of your nafs [ego]. No trial has afflicted you except through it. Do not make peace with it; for by God; no one can bring honor to it except one who has humiliated it; and no one can bring greatness to it except one who has made it insignificant and submissive; and no one can make it whole except one who has broken it; and no one can bring rest to it except one who has exhausted it; and no one can bring security to it except one who has frightened it; and no one can bring happiness to it except one who has brought sadness to it.'This book provides a wide selection of quotations taken from ten of the best books of Ibn al-Qayyim (full name Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah); famous Medieval theologian and spiritual writer and companion of Ibn Taymiyyah; translated into easy; accessible English for the modern reader.
