If someone does not take his lunch because there is nothing to eat, then it causes him tiredness and anger.
But a believer who chooses not to eat while he has everything to do so, for the sake of obeying his Lord, then he is exercising his ability to control himself against some of his desire.
You can eat, but you don’t eat. You can drink, but you learn not to drink, so that you can tell yourself that you’re a proactive person. Not a reactive one.
A reactive person will get mad when something stimulates him to anger. He will be sad and out of control when something causes him to be sad.
He has no ‘pause’ button. He has no ability to control himself to choose a better reaction. His actions are determined by things around him. He is not the one who controls himself.He is occupied by others.He is under the real occupation of others.
A muslim is not an effective muslim if he does not have a control over his own actions. He must be a proactive muslim.
Return back your self control… you are the strongest!
