Avoid the Temptation

‘I recall from my childhood days, someone saying : “...For temptation will 
lead you into trouble and make you cry.”  - And indeed this is exactly 
what happens when one gives into the temptation to engage in any Haraam.

…Ask those who have given into the demands of nafs and shaytaan, 
about the repercussions of their sins. …They will say: Trouble, trouble 
and more trouble. Tears, tears and more tears.

Temptations will always be there. If there was no temptation, then there 
would have been no such thing as Taqwa. The demand is to resist, to stay away, 
to abstain from sins. Not  to do sins is so much easier than ‘doing’ sins.

Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel (Rahmatullahi ‘Alayh)
