SC • E19: Kya Anbiya o Auliya Ka Bhi Tazkia e Nafs Howa Tha?

In Lesson 19 of the Elementary Sufi Course, Younus AlGohar discusses how the prophet and saints of God dealt with their Lower Selves and whether or not they had to go through the process of purification.


- The Lower Self gave all prophets and saints a hard time, including Ali (ra) and Imam Hussain (ra).

- The Quran mentions the incident of Joseph and Zulekha. In Quran 12:53, Joseph says, '‘I do not think my Lower Self is exempt from sin, because verily, the Nafs e Ammarah (Commanding Self) compels one to do bad'. So in the light of the Quran, it is not just important for ordinary human beings to purify the Lower Self. Even the Lower Selves of all the prophets and saints were impure when they were born into this world. 

- According to Prophetic Tradition, Prophet Mohammad (saw) said, ‘When a person is born, a Satanic Jinn is born alongside him’. The Companions asked, ‘O' Messenger of God, was that Jinn born with you?’ Prophet Mohammad (saw) said, ‘Yes, it was born with me, however, it was purified in my company'.

- When it is proven in light of this Prophetic Tradition that the Lower Self is born with a common man and with the Prophet (saw), how is it possible to say that the great saints and Companions of the Prophet never sinned? Or that the descendants or Household of the Prophet never made a mistake?
