I’ve been getting into newsletters lately and Aida Azlin’s Tuesday Love Letters have been a huge part of my weekly reading over the past few months. It’s almost like she’s a mind reader! I love getting her email notification because her love letters usually arrive at a time when I need them. Plus the personable styles of the letters make it feel like you’re having a conversation with a friend.
Her latest newsletter titled ‘Your Real Other Half’ was so amazing, I immediately shared it on all my social media networks and Whatsapp Group. Below is an extract:
However, there’s a particular pair that got my attention, which is the pairing of our body and our soul. It is unfortunate that we only see the physical casing of ourselves, i.e. the body, but we neglect to acknowledge and remember that we have a soul, our nafs, in us as well. And according to Habib Ali in his book, “the Nafs is the greatest barrier that prevents us from going towards Allah.”
