How To Get Inner Strength
Through means of inner strength, man can control the evil self (Nafs-e-Ammara). God describes this power in the Qur’an,
“Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection.
Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul”
Here God swears by the self-accusing soul (Nafs-e-Lawwama), informing man of an inner strength. The self-accusing soul exists within every human being. Man can control himself from sins as a result of the self-accusing soul. However, he cannot benefit from any power until he recognizes it. Moreover, this inner strength is useless for man unless, along with recognition, he also protects and develops this power.
