The Straight Path is Wide

Abu Hurayrah narrates that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The one who eats and is grateful has the same station as the one who fasts and is patient.” (at-Tirmidhi 2486)

Anas bin Malik narrated that: the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever prays Fajr in congregation, then sits remembering Allah until the sun has risen, then he prays two Rak’ah, then for him is the reward like that of a Hajj and Umrah.” He said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Complete, complete, complete.'” (at-Tirmidhi 586)

Abu Hurayrah reported: The poor came to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and said: “Oh, Messenger of Allah, the wealthy have gone with the highest ranks and lasting bliss. They pray like us and fast as we do. They have more money by which they perform the Hajj, and `Umra; fight and struggle in Allah’s Cause and give in charity.” The Messenger of Allah said, “Shall I not teach you something with which if you acted you would catch up with those who have surpassed you? Nobody would overtake you and you would be better than the people amongst whom you live except those who would do the same. Say Subhanal-lah (Allah is free from imperfection), Al hamdulil-lah (Praise be to Allah), and Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest) thirty-three times after every (obligatory) prayer.” (al-Bukhari 843)
