Image of Desires

Safar 9, 1429 AH     

 One of the most malicious issues in the life a youth is desires. Every youths decision is affected by his desires and it is his choice to surpress it, harness it, or misuse it. Imam Jafar Sadiq and he quoted Imam Ali: Are we greater than the angels?"  In response he replied, "Allah endowed angels with intellect without desire, animals with desire without intellect and man with both of them.  So he whose intellect manages to conquer his desire,is greater than the angels, and he whose desires overcome his intellect, he is lower than the animals." Therefore, before committing any act, we must always remind ourselves of this hadith and think of our actions.
