*FUEL FOR YOUR JOURNEY.*

Allah Ta’ala said: 

«لا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إلّا وُسْعَها» «١» [البقرة ٢٨٦]

2:286] 

*”Allah does not obligate anyone beyond his capacity.”*

*Rasouloullah swalallahou alaihi wasallam said:*

حَدَّثَنا حَسَنٌ، حَدَّثَنا ابْنُ لَهِيعَةَ، حَدَّثَنا عَبْدُ 

الرَّحْمَنِ الأعْرَجُ، قالَ: سَمِعْتُ أبا هُرَيْرَةَ، يَقُولُ: قالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ: «اكْلَفُوا مِنَ -[

العَمَلِ ما تُطِيقُونَ، فَإنَّ خَيْرَ العَمَلِ أدْوَمُهُ، وإنْ قَلَّ»

مسند أحمد مخرجا

*”Take on only that amount of voluntary actions that you can complete, for the best of deeds is that which is done regularly, even if it is little.”*(Ibn Majah/Ahmad)

*The above hadith is referring to our daily hizb of Quran, daily zikrullah, daily tahajjud time spending, daily sadaqah, daily helping others and daily da’wat.*

*Rasouloullah swalallahou alaihi wasallam used to complete a daily set amount of Quran reading, do lots of istighfaar, zikrullah and kept time for inviting others.*

*Allah Ta’ala has attached daily zikrullah a condition for success:*

*“And do lots of Zikr of Allah so that you may succeed.”*(8:45)

سورة الأنفال (٨): آية ٤٥]

يا أيُّها الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إذا لَقِيتُمْ فِئَةً فاثْبُتُوا واذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

*That is why a sheikh advise a set amount of daily Quran, Istighfaar, Douroud and third kalimah to his mureed. To make him a successful well mannered human being that will reach its destination of pleasing Allah Ta’ala and acquit the rights of others.*

*But since the best action is the one done daily, even if it is little, then start with little and slowly increase your hizb and zikrullah so much that you may complete daily.*

*Rasouloullah swalallahou alaihi wasallam described the best action as a traveller that continue his journey again after his stop. Describing the regular Quran reading as a means to reach one’s destination in a journey. The journey of life.*

عَنْ قَتَادَةَ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ بْنِ أَوْفَى عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ

قَالَ رَجُلٌ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَيُّ الْعَمَلِ أَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ قَالَ الْحَالُّ الْمُرْتَحِلُ قَالَ وَمَا الْحَالُّ الْمُرْتَحِلُ قَالَ الَّذِي يَضْرِبُ مِنْ أَوَّلِ الْقُرْآنِ إِلَى آخِرِهِ كُلَّمَا حَلَّ ارْتَحَلَ

ترمذي

قالت الصوفية الاستقامة فوق الكرامة 

*That is why it is said: “To be steadfast on your good deeds is far better than you do a miracle.*
