You keep adopting the sublime habits (Sunnah) of Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Alihi Wasalam), and little by little, you shall lose your ego and selfishness. There is more of him and less of you, until the very Spirit of Muhammad comes to dwell within you, such that people no longer see you, they see him; and it is no longer you that sees, no longer you that hears, no longer you that speaks, it is him who now does all of these and more through you..
