"The great Lord of Lords, Mawlâ 'Ali,—upon whom be the blessings of God, the King, the All High!—said that once the Prophet (blessings of God be upon him) send a party of his companions on a military expedition. On their return, when they came before his presence, he greeted them as men who had participated in a jihâd-i asghar, or the smaller war in the cause of religion, and said they still has to take up the jihâd-i akbar, the greater war. Whereupon they inquired from the Apostle of God, asking: "What is jihâd-i akbar?" And he replied that the most glorious war is that which one wages against his own vile instincts (nafs-i ammâra). This is, indeed, the truth,—blessings of God be upon him who said this!" (Source: True Meaning of Religion, pp. 1-2)
In verse 60 of Kalâmê Mowlâ, NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) has elaborated on the concept of struggle against one's lower self as follows:
Jêhâd karnâ kâfarsênthee,
To wage Holy War against an infidel
To jees bandênê nafsku(n) mârâ,
The one who has defeated the lower self,
May our beloved Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) grant you, your family, your Jamat and the worldwide Jamat luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually, and may He grant you the inner vision of the Truth. Ameen.
