It burns through your system because it transforms you. You go from an organism that only cares about itself, to be a higher being that reflects love, compassion and kindness to those around him. That’s what Islam does. It turns us into “higher beings” than raw animals.
Animals only care about themselves. Animals only worry about making it to the next day. Higher beings, those who are in tune with the Quran, who are blessed by Allah live with compassion, love and mercy.
Unfortunately, this is not all going to happen overnight, but the good news is baby steps are still steps forward. Keep that in mind. You might be thinking that you’re not making much progress because you’re only able to manage a small step forward. Well, my brother, that’s still a step forward. It’s still a step in the right direction.
