Ayat 43 of Surat Furqan of the Holy Qur'an (25:43) reads:--
"Have you seen the person who has made his
desires his god?"
This Noble ayat seems to tell us that there are 2 gods in our exitence, and we must recognize them; one is the true God- ie Allah Ta'ala and the second is our inner-self (ego), which rules over a person by enslaving him/her in desires. We must strive to get rid of this duality and find the One True God...Allah, the Creator and Lord of the Universe.
