Good Deeds

As a conclusion today we will look at some of the rewards for doing Good Deeds.

Let us scroll through the Glorious Quraan and Ahadith of Rasulullah ﷺ to see what Allah has promised for those who fulfil the two responsibilities of Imaan and Good Deeds.

1. Peace and tranquillity is attained in this world

مَنْ عَمِلَ صَـٰلِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُۥ حَيَوٰةً طَيِّبَةً ۖ وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُوا۟ يَعْمَلُونَ

Whoever does good deeds, whether male or female, and is a believer, We will surely bless them with a good life, and We will certainly reward them according to the best of their deeds. (16:97)

2. All the creation will love him and he will be regarded as the best of creation

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ سَيَجْعَلُ لَهُمُ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنُ وُدًّا

Surely, those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them the All-Merciful (Allah) will create love (in the hearts of His creatures). (19:96)

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمْ خَيْرُ ٱلْبَرِيَّةِ

As for those who believed and did righteous deeds, they are the best of all human beings. (98:7)

3. Immune from fear and grief

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ وَأَقَامُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتَوُا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ لَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

Surely those who believe and do good deeds, and establish Salaah (prayer) and pay Zakaah, will have their reward with their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve. (2:277)

4. Husn Al-Khatimah – a successful and good death

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ قَالُوا۟ رَبُّنَا ٱللَّهُ ثُمَّ ٱسْتَقَـٰمُوا۟ تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا۟ وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا۟ وَأَبْشِرُوا۟ بِٱلْجَنَّةِ ٱلَّتِى كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ

Surely, those who have declared: – Our Lord is Allh, then remained steadfast (i.e. continuously performed Al-A’mal As-Salihah), on them the angels will descend, saying, – Do not fear, and do not grieve; and be happy with the good news of the Jannah (Paradise) that you had been promised. (41:30)

5. Comfort in the grave

يُثَبِّتُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ بِٱلْقَوْلِ ٱلثَّابِتِ فِى ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ ۖ وَيُضِلُّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ ۚ وَيَفْعَلُ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ

Allah keeps the (perfect) believers (i.e. those who do good deeds and do not transgress) firm with the stable word in the worldly life and in the Hereafter (i.e. grave). (14:27)

EASY GOOD DEED – Peace Making

Peace-making between two Muslims who differ among themselves is an act of immense merit. The

The Holy Quraan says:

إِنَّمَا ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا۟ بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ ۚ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ

The believers are brothers to one another, therefore, make reconciliation between your brothers and fear Allah, so that you may be shown mercy. [Hujurat 49: 10]

And also:

فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَصْلِحُوا۟ ذَاتَ بَيْنِكُمْ

So fear Allah, end your disputes, and correct the relations between yourselves … [Anfaal 8:1]

These verses clearly show how sublime it is to make peace between two Muslims and to try to restore good relations between them.

For this purpose, one should tell both of them things about each other which may re-awaken love and affection between them and remove their misunderstandings. In this connection one can relate even those things which may apparently seem contrary to facts.

Our Holy Prophet ﷺ has gone so far so as to have said:

عن أم كلثوم بنت عقبة بن أبي معيط رضي الله عنها قالت سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول‏:‏ ‏”‏ليس الكذاب الذي يصلح بين الناس فينمي خيرًا، أو يقول خيرًا‏”‏.‏

و في رواية مسلم زيادة، قالت: “و لم اسمعه يرخصه في شيء مما يقوله الناس الا في ثلاث، تعني: الحرب، و الاصلاح بين الناس، و حديث الرجل امراته، و حديث المرأة زوجها

Umm Kulthum bint ‘Uqbah RA reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, ‘The person who (lies) in order to conciliate between people is not a liar, when he conveys good or says (something) good”. [Bukhari and Muslim].

The narration in Muslim added: She said, “I never heard him (she meant the Prophet (ﷺ)) giving permission of lying in anything except in three (things): war, conciliating between people and the conversation of man with his wife and the conversation of a woman with her husband”.

Another hadith gives the following Prophetic quotation:

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم كُلُّ سُلَامَى مِنْ النَّاسِ عَلَيْهِ صَدَقَةٌ، كُلَّ يَوْمٍ تَطْلُعُ فِيهِ الشَّمْسُ تَعْدِلُ بَيْنَ اثْنَيْنِ صَدَقَةٌ،

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Every joint of a person must perform a charity each day that the sun rises: to judge justly between two people is a charity, [Bukhari and Muslim]

To create bad blood and enmity among people is a diabolical act and a Hadith tells us that nothing is more pleasing to Shaytaan than creating discord among people.

In contrast to this, trying to make peace and bring about rapprochement between husband and wife is an act of great merit.
