As-Salaam alaykum,
Says Allahu Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala in the Holy Qur'an:--

"Say (O Muhammad): If you love Allah, then follow me.
Allah will love you and forgive you your sins." (3:31)

"Whatever the Messenger gives you [then] take it and
Whatever he prohibits you from [then] refrain from it." (59:7)

As observed by Imam al-Dhahabi, may Allah be Merciful to him, in his Siyar A'lam al-Nubala (Beirut: Mu'assasah al-Risala, 1998), in order not to be "empty, hollow, a mere shell without substance, we must each have a serious regime of spiritual practices where prayer, fasting, Zikr and other religious practices are internalized; where true sincerity is cultivated and where the ego is tamed and trained."

Along this line, the Imam advised further that as Muslims conscious of being on a journey towards meeting Allah Ta'ala on the Final Day of Judgement, we must be circumspect in our food and speech, guard our tongue(s), make zikr continuously, not socialising with people too much and be weeping over our sins.

We should, also, be reciting the Holy Qur'an calmly, distinctly and ponder over it, detest our ego (nafs) and rebuke it for Allah's sake, offer voluntary fasts, pray Tahajjud regularly; be humble with people; maintain ties of kinship; be tolerant and largehearted; smile a lot, spend on relatives and dependants; speak the truth even if bitter, mildly and without haste or frustration; eating only what is lawful at all times and seeking forgiveness of Allah (Istighfar) abundantly in private.

Such are the characteristics of the awliya', and the qualities of the Muhammadans... the followers of the Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. May Allah Ta'ala grant us the ability to adopt these qualities and keep us in/on them up to our last breathe... ameen.
