Once Hazrat Shaikh Junaid Baghdadi, may Allah Almighty sanctify his inner self, was sitting in his chamber. He got the feeling that some one is saying that he should do jihad. He thought about it and then said the following.
"O my baser self I have understood your trick. You want to do jihad so that the matter will so be finished quickly. You want a quick delivery from the worldly problems through martyrdom. Now listen! I'll kill you in this room only at the time of appointed by Allah Almighty. No easy exit for you." The whispering did not return after that.
