Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

The mistake people tend to make nowadays is that they regard the following of the correct deeni procedures to be difficult and therefore avoid them. Without adopting the correct deeni procedures, one cannot attain deeni success. In worldly matters also, one is required to follow the correct procedures to achieve one’s goal. Even the simplest of tasks cannot be accomplished without adhering to the correct and suitable procedure. Take the example of aeroplanes, ships, trains and cars – they all operate and function once the correct procedure is followed. Even the roti on the stove is prepared according to a procedure. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 12)
