Some reminders mentioned in Khutbah by Imam Dr. Shaheed Coovadia for pondering:
وَٱلْعَصْرِ. إِنَّ ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ لَفِى خُسْرٍ. إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلصَّبْرِ
By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.
Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“Take on only as much as you can do of good deeds, for the best of deeds is that which is done consistently, even if it is little.”
