Aisha reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, entered while I was with another woman. The Prophet asked, “Who is this?” I said, “She is a woman who never sleeps because she is always praying.” The Prophet said, “You must only perform deeds if you are capable . By Allah, Allah will not withhold from you until you give up. The most beloved religion to Allah is one which is performed regularly.”

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ دَخَلَ عَلَيَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَعِنْدِي امْرَأَةٌ فَقَالَ مَنْ هَذِهِ فَقُلْتُ امْرَأَةٌ لَا تَنَامُ تُصَلِّي قَالَعَلَيْكُمْ مِنْ الْعَمَلِ مَا تُطِيقُونَ فَوَاللَّهِ لَا يَمَلُّ اللَّهُ حَتَّى تَمَلُّوا وَكَانَ أَحَبَّ الدِّينِ إِلَيْهِ مَا دَاوَمَ عَلَيْهِ صَاحِبُهُ
