Self-Awareness: [How Ardent Am I In Fulfilling Obligations?]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Allaah [The Most High] said in Surah Al-Aadiyaat Ayah 6: [إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لِرَبِّهِ لَكَنُودٌ – Verily! Man (disbeliever) is ungrateful to his Lord.
Few Reminders from above Ayah
The human being is uninterested in his lord despite the blessings his Lord has bestowed on him. He is not inclined towards forbearance regarding what his Lord has obligated on him, in order to fulfil it perfectly; rather he is inclined towards laziness and he does not fulfil what is obligated on him-be it physical acts of worship or acts of worship related to spending one’s wealth; except those whom Allaah has guided, so they abandon this trait and are forbearing whilst seeking to fulfil what has been obligated on them. [Ref 1]
