In Ayat 69 of Surat Ankabuti of the Holy Qur'an (29:69), Allah, Azza Wa Jallah, says:--
"AS FOR THOSE WHO STRIVE IN US, WE SHALL GUIDE THEM TO OUR PATHS."
Explaining this Noble Ayat, Imam Ibn al-Qayyim [see his Fawa'id and Zadil-Ma'ad] said that "the most compulsory form of Jihad (afrad al-jihad) is Jihad against the ego (nafs); against unbridled passions (hawa); against the Devil (shaytan); and against being worldly (dunya). Those who wage jihad against these 4, in obedience to Allah, shall be guidded by Allah to the path of His good pleasure which [in turn] will lead to His Paradise. Those who neglect jihad will be veiled from guidance to the degree they forsake jihad."
So, we should all strive to overcome temptations, casual desires and/or the devil's whisperings. May we all be blessed with Taufiq to internalize Islamic teachings through acts of Worship and Devotion such as Zikr, Sallat, Fasting, Almsgiving etc... ameen.
Everything about Quran, verses and tafseer.
