Hadith on Remembrance: Let him increase the remembrance of Allah

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever among you is too weak to stand at night for prayer, or is too miserly to spend in charity, or is too afraid to fight the aggressor, then let him increase in the remembrance of Allah.”

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ عَجَزَ مِنْكُمْ عَنِ اللَّيْلِ أَنْ يُكَابِدَهُ وَبَخِلَ بِالْمَالِ أَنْ يُنْفِقَهُ وَجَبُنَ عَنِ الْعَدُوِّ أَنْ يُجَاهِدَهُ فَلْيُكْثِرْ ذِكْرَ اللَّهِ
