COURAGE AND EFFORT

A. A bondsman (of Allah) should build up courage and make effort, Allah Ta’ala will ensure the persons success. When a father sees his child walking ten steps and falling, then due to mercy and compassion he assists the child and takes him into his lap. Just as the father desires the child to make an effort to walk, in the same way Allah wishes to see our effort. But sad to say, we are not prepared to move from our positions. (We are not prepared to make any effort).

B. Nothing is impossible for a person with courage. Courage is cultivated by staying in the company of a Kaamil (an experienced spiritual guide) or by communicating with him.
