Got an Itch?

One of the salaf related how sinning is like an itch. Shaitan and the Nafs are like mosquitoes that bite your soul and make you itch. Scratching that itch is sinning. It is better to resist the incredible desire to scratch, bear the torture, and try to remedy by applying an ointment (good deeds). If you start scratching, you will have to go on scratching until you wound the area.
