How Ali (RA) Describe Anxiety

Ali (RA) the fourth caliph of Islam was a question as to what is the strongest thing that man find hard to overcome: his response is as follows.
Mountains are enormous and strong
But man can use Metal to pierce through it
However man can use Fire to melt metal
But water is at man’s disposal to put out fire
Water is subjected to wind and clouds and boats can be use to sail through it
Alcohol drink can also affect man’s behaviour and actions
But when asleep alcohol too is overcome
What can render man the inability to even sleep is ANXIETY.
Anxiety is the one thing that man find hard to overcome
