Ibrahim bin Adham was asked,
“We have been praying to Allah, but Allah did not grant our request?”
You have been knowledgeable about Allah, but you do not obey Him
You are reading the Quran, but do not practice it.
You know the evil Satan can chase, but you deal with.
You claim to love the Messenger, but you leave the Sunnah.
You said you wanted to go to heaven, but do not try to acquire it.
You claim you are afraid of hell, but you do not obey God.
You said the death was really close, but you do not prepare.
You’re busy with other people’s mistakes, but do not reflect your fault.
You eat food which Allah bestowed, but you are not grateful.
You bury the bodies of the dead, but never make a reflection.

Knowledge is not enough: we must practice it.
Intention is not enough: we must do it.
