Achieving Taqwa

The only way to achieve the station of taqwa is through spiritual struggle (mujahadah).
Spiritual struggle is not something that miraculously comes into one's life. It is a move of the heart that beings to affect the limbs and then results in sincere repentance (tawbah), in which we seek to purify ourselves of prior wrongs and remove them from our present activities and make a strong commitment to a future free of the mistakes of the past.
