'Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) says:
"Messenger of Allah ﷺ once came home, a woman was present at that time. Messenger of Allah ﷺ inquired. 'Who is this woman?' I replied: 'This is a certain woman who does not sleep at night'. Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: 'One should observe only that amount of nawaafil which one can bear. I swear an oath that Allah Ta'aala does not fear the granting of rewards, till you begin to fear the observance of deeds'. 'Aisha (may Allah be pleased with him). 'Anha says: 'The most beloved deed of Messenger of Allah ﷺ were those that were practised continuously.
حَدَّثَنَا هَارُونُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدَةُ، عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ‏:‏ دَخَلَ عَلَيَّ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَعِنْدِي امْرَأَةٌ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ مَنْ هَذِهِ‏؟‏ قُلْتُ‏:‏ فُلانَةُ لا تَنَامُ اللَّيْلَ، فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنَ الأَعْمَالِ مَا تُطِيقُونَ، فَوَاللَّهِ لا يَمَلُّ اللَّهُ حَتَّى تَمَلُّوا، وَكَانَ أَحَبَّ ذَلِكَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم الَّذِي يَدُومُ عَلَيْهِ صَاحِبُهُ‏.‏
