Nafs نفس means "self", but in philosophy and metaphysics it refers more specifically to the "little" self, psychologically termed the ego. In Sufism, Nafs is one of the Lata'if (its color being blue), but an "external" one, and as such often left out of the list that is more concerned with the 5 inner ones (see Qalb, Ruh, Sirr). In a mystical context, it is said that at the center of the illusion that is the ego, there is a void.
