“Repentance is a key. And Taqwa [awareness and fear of Allah] is vast. And Uprightness [Istiqama] is the source of rectification. Furthermore a servant is never free of either blunders, or shortcomngs, or lassitude. Therefore never be neglectful of Tawbah [repentance], and never turn away from the act of returning to Allah [subhanahu wa ta’ala], and never neglect acts that bring you closer to Allah [subhanahu wa ta’ala]. Indeed, every time one of these three occurs, repent and return.”

– Imam Ahmad al-Zarruq al-Shadhili rahimahullah-
