(Nafs al Mulhamma) is the Inspired Self. The Qur'an refers to this Self, "By the Self and the proportion and order given to it" (91:7). This Self has turned away from wrong action and is able to discern that which will take it to felicity. It journeys under the care of Allah. The Nafs al Mulhamma is equated with the third rung on the ladder to Knowledge (perfection) and to the second standing posture of the ritual prayer.
