I Want to Rectify Myself (English) – Description

What do You Want: Heaven or Hell?

Imam Abu Nu’aim Ahmad Bin ‘Abdullah Asfahani (Deceased in 430 AH.) mentions in Hilya-tul-Auliya that Sayyiduna Ibrähim Taimi states: Once, I imagined that I am in Hell, tightly strapped by the chains of fire, eating cactus and sipping the pus of the people in hell. After these contemplations, I enquired my Nafs [Inner-being], “Tell me, what you desire: torment of Hell or deliverance from Hell?” My Nafs answered, “Deliverance. I want to go back to the world and perform such deeds by virtue of which I can be exempted from the Hell.” After this, I contemplated that I am in Heaven, eating its fruits, drinking beverages from its rivers, and meeting with the Hürs [beautiful virgins of Heaven]. After these imaginations, I questioned my Nafs, “What do you desire: Heaven or Hell?” My Nafs answered, “Heaven. I want to go to the world and perform good deeds so that I can avail the bounties of paradise.” Then I said to my Nafs:

Right now you have opportunity. (Meaning: O! Nafs, now you have to determine your path yourself, either rectify yourself and go to the Heaven or do sins and go to the Hell. Therefore, you should sow what you want to reap).
