On sin and temptations 

The self is an advocate of sin.
I believe ,no matter what we tackle first, we cannot win over sins ,We need GOD s help.
True believers live a daily strife to keep up with the divine standards of leading a righteous life.
For them, everyday is an opportunity to practice perseverance, hold fast to the teachings of GOD s message.
Even though God would never burden a soul beyond its mean (23:62, 22:78, 4:28), He emphasizes that the journey on the straight path isn’t smooth or effortless.
We struggle to discipline ourselves to unconditionally obey God. It is often challenging to implement His teachings and portray His ethics.
God also assures us that He will bring us ease and contentment when we choose this striving path of being devout servants of Him alone. That includes overcoming temptations( lust included).

[Qoran 2:153] O you who believe, seek help through steadfastness and the /remembrance of GOD/prayer. God is with those who steadfastly persevere. 

Yes, we need to  seek help from GOD for everything ,including temptations of all sorts, as simple as that( Or may be too complicated for others?)

On healing :

GOD heals the lot. Root or effect or whatever one wants to call it.

Just how are you going to deal with the root cause, if your programme is being attacked by viruses?

I am advocating this:

[Qoran 10:57] O people, enlightenment has come to you herein from your Lord, and healing for anything that troubles your hearts, and guidance, and mercy for the believers. 

GOD is the Master Doctor, the Master Psychiatrist, He cures all causes and effects of anything you can imagine ,including lust..
Brother/sister, I am advocating true healing.
Who can heal better than GOD?

On sins again:

Yes ,we can say that not many are going to commit murder. Not many are going to oppress /bully all the time…Big and clear doing wrong!

However lust, lying, back-biting ,jealousy, being nosy, spying on people, spreading rumours…etc  can be small things or big things?

Now “intentions” are what matters in those things.

All sins are harmful. If you are a true believer you recognise a sin. You build a defence mechanism called” Remembering GOD” 24/7!!!

That will  be your weapon. Once you realise who GOD is, you will automatically feel His presence everywhere. You will know His attributes .i.e His greatness, omnipotence, omnipresence, He is there with you where ever you are…etc.

The second you feel temptation, a bell should ring inside you, a warning that your Lord is there watching you. How can you proceed knowing this?  If the urge is too strong and you make the first few steps towards the temptation, seek refuge in your Lord He is still there ready to help. If you still cannot resist and you make more steps towards the temptation… And so on ,then you commit the sin!!!

Well, there is a lot of repentance to be done in this case. Make sure you mean it. Try your Lord and sincerely promise you will do better from now on…He will try you harder this time, you will need a lot of willpower from now on…etc.
Just make sure you do not keep coming back to your sin,  otherwise you may then reach a situation where there is no return.

In simple term, if temptation of any sort tickles your fancy, remember your Lord. If remembering your Lord becomes your habit, the Lord is always there to save you .

On a light-hearted story about Jesus:

Jesus and the flashlight
A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight
around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to
place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark
saying, “Jesus is watching you.”
He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and
froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head,
promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked
the light back on and began searching for more valuables. Just as
he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as
a bell he heard, “Jesus is watching you.”
Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the
source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his
flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. “Did you say that?” He
hissed at the parrot.
“Yep,” the parrot confessed, then squawked, “I’m just trying to warn
The burglar relaxed. “Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?”
“Moses,” replied the bird.
“Moses?” the burglar laughed. “What kind of stupid people would name
a parrot Moses?”
The bird promptly answered, “Probably the same kind of people that
would name a Rotweiller “Jesus”!

God bless.
