السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

By the Grace of Allah Ta`ala I am constant on my zikr. Besides this I am not managing to do anything else. Al-Hamdulillah, with your blessings whatever I was given this year for performing Taraweeh was promptly returned.

I was greatly pleased to hear that whatever you were given for Taraweeh was returned. May Allah Ta`ala make you independent of such wealth.

One’s ma`moolaat (daily practices) must be punctually completed. This is the ladder to progress. It is extremely detrimental to drift off from the path (of zikr, islaah, etc.) after having been granted the ability to start on this journey. May Allah Ta`ala save us. Aameen.
