One posting that has generated a lot of interests is my posting on Yusuf and Zulaikha the biblical and Quranic story of Joseph, having to battle the advances of the passionate and beautiful zulaikha.
Joseph the prophet , the chosen one, survived this test of righteousness. If you were to be tested like what Joseph went through would you succumb to the passions of Zulaikha?
Ths is the story of the battle against passions. While passions could be positive, it could also bring destructions. Passions is an extreme and intense feeling of either emotions, love or lust. it embraces the mental, physical, love and lust. It is a battle between reasons and desire, between the mind and the heart.
