Know our enemies

Imam Ahmad b Sahl, May God have Mercy on him, mentioned,

“Your enemies are four:

The world, whose weapon is the people, and whose prison is isolation;

Satan, whose weapon is satiation, and whose prison is hunger;

The undisciplined soul, whose weapon is sleep, and whose prison is night vigil;

and vain inclinations, whose weapon is speech, and whose prison is silence.”
