“O soul, woe to You!
Guidance has come to you,
Answer it! Here is the caller of Allah,
summoning you.
Many-a-time are you called to guidance
yet turn away do you,
But answer do you the caller to misguidance
when he calls you!

One of the Companions said:

You are doing deeds that are, in your eyes, more insignificant than a hair, whereas at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (‘alayhis-salaam) we would consider them to be destructive sins![1]
