Sin begins when you plant a small seed of neglect
When you allow a sin to firmly plant itself into a habit, it grows into your heart, hardening it.
Sin begins when you plant a small seed of neglect in your relationship with Allaah and it is watered with your attachment to the dunyah.
Uproot the tree rather than trim the branches, fear Allaah and aim to love what He loves and to abstain from what he prohibited.
Soften your heart with the remembrance of Allaah and strengthen your nafs with the reminder of death. Plant a seed of Tawakkul and water it with patience, allow it to grow firmly into your heart with good deeds.
