    (itqān) means excellent work ethic or due diligence; احْسَان (iḥsān), which I mentioned earlier, is excellence but in the broader sense of always trying to set higher standards for ourselves. Iḥsān refers to motivation, to the drive that we have with regards to Allah; itqān refers to the higher work ethic.
