July 24, 2017

Hisham ibn Urwah reported: Urwah, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Be not deceived by the prayer of a man, nor by his fasting. Whoever wills can fast and whoever wills can pray, yet there is no religion for one who cannot be trusted.”

عن هشام بن عروة قال عروة رحمه الله لا يَغُرَّنَّكُمْ صَلاةُ امْرِئٍ وَلا صِيَامُهُ مَنْ شَاءَ صَامَ وَمَنْ شَاءَ صَلَّى لا دِينَ لِمَنْ لا أَمَانَةَ لَهُ
