Mind matters

“Who is the most powerful person in the world.?” Dad asked on dining table.

“I guess….I know dad,” my 9-year-old brother said.”The one with money, right?”

Dad smiled looking at me,”what do you think, sweetie?”

“Well…..I think the one having strength is the most powerful person,” I replied.

“Alright…but in my opinion the most powerful is the one who can control his mind. Because mind is the organ that controls us. But successful is the one who conquers the organ.”

    “Hmm…..and what are those weaknesses..?”

    “Ghazali said and I quote..”
    “Declare your jihad on enemies you cannot see – egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. If you can master and destroy them, then you will be read to fight the enemy you can see.”

    “Means, weaknesses are those which are invisible..?”

    “Weaknesses are always invisible, My Dearest…!…. Its their causes and effects which are visible…”

    “..and which is the biggest weaknesses, which a powerful has to master?..”
