Beware of Your Own Self

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

A slave [of Allāh] doesn’t trust and feel settled with his [own] soul—evil doesn’t come except from it. And he doesn’t occupy himself blaming people and finding fault with them. Instead, he goes back to [his own] sins and repents from them, asks Allāh for protection from the evil of his [own] soul and his [own] sinful deeds, and asks Allāh to help him obey Him.
