Control Your Desires

Some of the ulema mention the one who can’t control his hunger can’t control  his desire as he eats everything and whenever he wishes. The one who can’t control his desires eventually becomes debased, whereas the one who controls his desires is raised.

Look at Yusuf (as) as an example. He was sold like a slave, yet he became the minister of the entire country after he controlled his desire!

And look at the one who desired him; rich, powerful and beautiful, yet she became mocked and derided!
