ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziya,

there is no captive in a worse state than the one who is captivated by his worst enemy (shaytaan), and there is no prison which is tighter that the prison of hawaa (desire) and there is no bond/fetter more strong than the bond of desire. how then will a heart which is captivated, imprisoned and fettered travel unto ALLAH and the home of the Hereafter?

it’s then upon us to ponder and reflect. we should try to be conscious of ALLAH (SWT) as much as possible in order to achieve His pleasure.
