al Hijr : 99

                وَاعْبُدْ رَبَّكَ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَكَ الْيَقِينُ 
                                         (And worship your Lord until the certainty comes to you.)

Talking about 'ibadah, in its strict fiqh definition but broad methods, with the importance of their consistencies, and not to mention the need for their constant improvements at every single opportunity.. its understandable that too many are more than willing to give up. its a pretty difficult path we have there. you do believe, but..its just too hard to commit. "God should understand, right?" 

Regardless of how we justify our perceptions, decisions and act, like it or not, surrender to that "awful" truth that the law and explicit commands won't be changed :

"And worship your Lord until the certainty comes to you" al Hijr: 99
Al Bukhari explained that certainty in this context is "death". 

So ber'ibadah lah till death comes to you. Berdzikir lah till you die. Berinfaqlah till you die. Bayar zakat lah till you die. Bersederhana lah till you die.Solat lah till you die. Tahajjud lah till you die. Berakhlak mulia lah till you die. Senyum lah till you die. Zuhud lah till you die. Mencari ilmu lah till you die. Bersilaturrahim lah till you die. Bersabarlah till you die. Tutuplah aurat till you die. Jagalah pergaulan till you die. Amar ma'ruflah till you die. Berda'wah lah till you die. Berjihadlah till you die. 

insya Allah, we can do this.
