flowers_closeup_05Imam Ghazali (Raheemahullah) on making effort with continuity and steadfastness:

If a tank of water is poured on a stone in one go, it will have no effect on the stone. On the other hand if the tank with the same amount of water, has a hole in it and drop by drop the water falls on the stone over a period of time, it will have an effect and wear out a hole in the stone.

Similarly, any act of obedience or refraining from disobedience has to be persevered with continuity for lasting effect.
