Question

Could you please translate this narration:

استقيموا، ولن تحصوا، واعلموا أن خير أعمالكم الصلاة، ولا يحافظ على الوضوء إلا مؤمن

 

Answer

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Remain steadfast [on whatever good is possible] for you will be unable to thoroughly carry out every single good deed [or, Remain steadfast for you are unable to count the reward of steadfastness]. Know that among the best of your deeds is Salah and that none maintains his wudu except a believer”

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 278, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 277. Refer: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 994)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
