Leave disobedience in the day!

Some people asked Ibrāhīm b. Adham: “We cannot get up for the night prayers.  Can you advise us as to what we should do in order to perform them?”

He replied, “If you do not disobey Allah during the day, He will wake you to stand before Him during the night because to stand in front of your Lord in the night is a great honor for you, and the disobedient do not deserve this honor.”

(At-Tahajjud, Ibn Abi Dunya)
