Sufyan ibn Abdullah reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, tell me of a word in Islam I will not need to ask of anyone after you.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Say, ‘I have faith in Allah,’ and then remain steadfast.” Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 38 The definition of “Istiqamah” in its literal sense is to act morally and without deviating from the path of righteousness. It derives from the stem “Qiyyam,” which suggests that something should be done continuously, followed up on, and ensured to be done correctly without veering off course.
