Imagine! Even while raising the foundations of House (Kaabah) Prophet Ibrahim a.s and Prophet Ismail a.s were praying to Allah swt to accept it from them.
But sadly when we do and when we make little efforts for His service, we often feel great and little do we fear and pray to Him to accept it sincerely for His sake.
[2.127] And when Ibrahim and Ismail raised the foundations of the House (said)-Our Lord! accept from us; surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing.
Ya Allah swt make us sincere and steadfast.
