“If your primary concern is not pleasing Allah, then you will not be pleased with anything that concerns Islam”
Remember how tough it is to perform prayer on time? How hard it is to read the Quran each day? How difficult it is to preach others? Then know that the heart is still not set on pleasing Allah, that the total ‘ubudiyyah (51:56) is still far from our reach.
Works towards overhauling our heart for we’ll find it happier and easier to practise Islam.”
