They sicken it and define its will as other than what Allah The Almighty wants [of His servant], in effect being as harmful to the heart as actual poisons are to the body.

Like many Muslims today, I struggle with constancy in the remembrance of my Creator. I stay mostly mindful of being His servant, often finding myself subconsciously glorifying His name.
