In this episode, Ustadh Amjad covers the section from Imam Haddad’s Book of Assistance on regular devotions. After beginning with a reminder on the importance of structuring one’s time, he comprehensively examines the routines of worship a seeker should have in his day. He encourages us to value consistency rather than excess, outlining the various acts of devotion — prayer, Qur’an, seeking knowledge, remembrance, and reflection — that makeup one’s litanies (wird). He also discusses the inward and outward proprieties of one’s devotions, prioritizing the obligatory and sunna and acts of worship, and the virtue of night prayer and other supererogatory prayers.
