  is a general agreement about the physical make-up of
  a human.
Three Faces Of This World

  discussing so far.

Healthy Living For The Hereafter
(Congregational Life)

  and rank as though it is a lethal substance; any
  state that might bring about these feelings we
  stay away from.”
• “I do not want anyone to admire me or give me a
  rank. I have warned you about this issue many
  times.”
Healthy Living For The Hereafter
(Congregational Life) cont.
• “ O Said! Just like soil, you must be modest, in
  total humility and egoless so that the Risale-i
  Nur is not intervened with nor lose its effect.”
• “I do not clear my nefis from fault; on the
  contrary, my nefis desires evil.”
• “Yes! The person who loves himself and trusts
  himself is unwell. The person who sees his own
  mistakes is blessed.”
Healthy Living For The Hereafter
(Congregational Life) cont.
• “To me the biggest and most valuable service in
  this world is the service of saving or
  strengthening peoples faith. By all means, stay
  away from selfishness and things that bring
  pride. In this day and age, being humble, modest
  and egoless is a must for the people of truth.
  Since all exams are coming from selfishness,
  pride and testing the ego, the people of truth
  must always be modest, humble and always
  focus on your own faults and blame yourself.”
Healthy Living For The Hereafter
(Congregational Life) cont.
• “At the time of service and contemplation, the
  people of truth put themselves forward. At time
  of results and rewards, the people of truth push
  themselves back. The people of misguidance do
  the opposite.”
• “Yes due to pride, a person will deprive himself
  of physical and spiritual progress. Because of his
  pride if a person does not learn from others and
  believes his knowledge is sufficient, that person
  will be deficient.”
