How habits are formed?

SHAFAQNA – Desires, anger and imagination exist inside every human being’s nature. The nature of desires and anger are known but imagination is a force that human being with it can plan daily affairs. If a person likes a thing then as a consequence a series of tempers (good or bad) will be developed inside that person. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: Verily, the first 6 things which Allah (SWT) will be rebelled against are: Love of the world, love of the position, love of food, love of women, love of sleep and love of comfort [1].
According to narrations the root of all crimes is the love of the world and this has been approved by scientific and psychological studies. If a human being is attached to a thing, this attachment will lead to change of habits in accordance with the loved one. If this attachment is poured in the channel of desire, anger and imagination then there will be no recognised boundaries. This is where a human will be worse than of all animals and can commit any crime [2].
