• supplicating • without • good • deeds •

Wahb bin Munabbih (rahimahullaah) also said, “He who supplicates without good deeds is like one who shoots an arrow without a bow.”

Some of the Pious Predecessors said, “How can the answer not be delayed when you have blocked its path with sins.”

A poet reiterated the same meaning saying:

“We pray to God in every distress,

And forget Him when our distress is lifted.

How can we hope that our prayer will be answered,

When we have blocked its paths with sins?”

Imaam Ibn Rajab | Jaami’ al ‘Uloom wal Hikam
