Physical and Spiritual Diseases

To learn the knowledge of Religion is a Personal Duty (farz-e-ain). To learn worldly knowledge is Social Duty (farz-e-kafaya). Today we act upon merely preferable tasks (mustahabaat) but ignore the obligatory (wajibaat). How can one inculcate an urge to do the duties? For this one has to some Shaikh. If we have a physical disease then we immediately consult a physician. We get worried about the possibility of a serious illness. Then suppose their is disease of spiritual kind. We indulge in open disobedience of God. There is no concern about this in our hearts.
