On Istiqamah

الإستقامة درجة بها كمال الأمور و تمامها وبوجودها حصول الخيرات و نظامها و من لم يكن مستقيما في حالته ضاع سعيهُ و خابَ جَهدهُ

The Islamic lesson of istiqamah is the way to perfect and complete every matter, and good results only come about through it, for whoever is not perseverant in his efforts, they shall surely be wasted.

—the Ḥanafī scholar Abu’l-Qāsim al-Qushayrī (d. 465H)
