“Know – may Allah have mercy on you – that good character is the weightiest of all the things that are put in the balance and it makes its possessor reach the level of someone who fasts and prays at night.
If someone maintains ties of kinship, Allah maintains tie with him, and if someone cuts them off, Allah cuts him off.
The best action is performing the prayers at their times.
Next is solicitous concern for one’s parents well-being.
Then next comes jihad in the way of Allah…”
“I found procrastination to be one of the armies of the devil, a great many of Allah’s creation have been destroyed by it”
– Jaylan ibn Farwah al-Basri
