Just Imagine whenever you are tired, you give up. Remember these few words
I am doing this……..
For the Pleasure of Allah.
For seeing the Face of Allah when I Return to Him.
For the Countenance of Allah.
Alhamdullilah ala kulli hal.
Abu Musa reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was standing amongst us and he told us five things. He said:
Verily the Exalted and Mighty Allah does not sleep, and it does not befit Him to sleep. He lowers the scale and lifts it. The deeds in the night are taken up to Him before the deeds of the day, and the deeds of the day before the deeds of the night. His veil is the light. In the hadith narrated by Abu Bakr (instead of the word “light” ) it is fire. If he withdraws it (the veil), the splendour of His countenance would consume His creation so far as His sight reaches.
Sahih Muslim 179a
Abdullah b. Qais transmitted on the authority of his father (Abu Musa Ash’ari) that the Apostle (ﷺ) said:
There would be two gardens (in Paradise) the vessels and contents of which would be of silver, and two gardens whose vessels and contents would be of gold.
The only thing intervening to hinder the people from looking at their Lord will be the mantle of Grandeur over His face in the Garden of Eden.
Sa’d bin Hisham narrated that:
Aishah mentioned that the Messenger of Allah said:
“Whoever loves to meet Allah, then Allah loves to meet him. And whoever dislikes meeting Allah, then Allah dislikes meeting him.”
She said: “O Messenger of Allah! All of us dislike death.”
He said: “It is not like that. But when the believer is given the good news of Allah’s mercy, His pleasure, and His Paradise, then he loves to meet Allah and Allah loves to meet him.
Whereas when the disbeliever is given the news of Allah’s punishment and His wrath, he dislikes meeting Allah, and Allah dislikes meeting him.”
Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1067
It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“The greatest reward comes with the greatest trial.
When Allah loves a people He tests them. Whoever accepts that wins His pleasure but whoever is discontent with that earns His wrath.”
Sunan Ibn Majah 4031
Deeds which are done seeking Allah’s Countenance
Narrated Jarir bin `Abdullah
We were with the Prophet (ﷺ) on a full moon night. He looked at the moon and said,
“You will certainly see your Lord as you see this moon, and there will be no trouble in seeing Him. So if you can avoid missing (through sleep, business, etc.)
a prayer before the rising of the sun (Fajr) and before its setting (`Asr) you must do so. He (the Prophet (ﷺ) ) then recited the following verse:
And celebrate the praises Of Your Lord before The rising of the sun And before (its) setting.” (50.39)
Sahih al Bukhari 573
Umm Habibah (May Allah be pleased with her) the Mother of the Believers reported:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying,
“A house will be built in Jannah for every Muslim who offers twelve Rak’ah of optional Salat other than the obligatory Salat in a day and a night (to seek the Pleasure of Allah).”
Riyad as Saliheen
Narrated `Utban bin Malik Al-Ansari:
who was one of the men of the tribe of Bani Salim:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) came to me and said, “If anybody comes on the Day of Resurrection who has said: La ilaha illal-lah, sincerely, with the intention to win Allah’s Pleasure, Allah will make the Hell-Fire forbidden for him.”
Sahih al-Bukhari 6423
Narrated Abu Sa`id:
I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, “Indeed, anyone who fasts for one day for Allah’s Pleasure, Allah will keep his face away from the (Hell) fire for (a distance covered by a journey of) seventy years.”
Sahih al-Bukhari 2840
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Wealth is not diminished by giving (in charity).
Allah augments the honour of one who forgives; and one who displays humbleness towards another seeking the pleasure of Allah, Allah exalts him in ranks.”

5. General Behaviour
Ibn ‘Umar said,
“There is nothing that is swallowed greater with Allah in reward than a slave of Allah who swallows and contains his rancour out of desire for the pleasure of Allah.”
