The Journey to Allah
Imam Bukhari included the following hadith in his sahih by Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said, Your actions alone will not save any of you. They sahabis asked, Messenger of Allah, not even you? The Prophet replied, 'Not even me, unless, Allah were to surround me in His mercy. Be firm, steadfast and balanced and journey [to Allah] in the beginning of the day, the end of the day, and a portion of the latter part of the night. Moderation, moderation! Through this you will attain your goal!"
