Sufi Principles of Meditation 10 Striving

"And We will surely test you until We make evident those who strive among you [for the cause of Allah] and the patient, and We will test your affairs." —Qur'an 47:31

The spiritual path is realized through psychological work upon the lower soul: nafs, defects, vices, or egos.

In this way, the consciousness wages a holy war against the internal causes of suffering, solely equipped with the weapons of intelligence, patience, equanimity, and compassion.
