Question: What are the causes which assist in purifying [one’s] sincerity [in worshipping Allaah alone], and likewise [one’s] firmness upon [practising] the religion?

Response: [From] the causes that assist are:

  • strength of eemaan;
  • an increase in the remembrance of Allaah;
  • reciting the Qur.aan, and
  • sitting in the gathering of the pious.

These are from the causes of reviving the hearts, and remembering Allaah ‘Azza wa Jall; [in addition to] abandoning idle amusement and negligence, and abandoning that which preoccupies you away from the remembrance of Allaah, [as Allaah ‘Azza wa Jall says]:

{…let not your wealth and your children divert you from the remembrance of Allaah. And whoever does that – then those are the losers}, soorah al-Munaafiqoon, aayah 9
