More valuable than your most valued possession
The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) narrated,
“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allaah, he will have a reward, and this reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that ‘Alif, Laam, Meem’ (a combination of letters frequently mentioned in the Holy Quran) is a letter, rather I am saying that ‘Alif’ is a letter, ‘Laam’ is a letter and ‘Meem’ is a letter.” [At-Tirmidhi]
This is confusing because on the day of judgment people will ransom their mother, their father, all of their friends, everything for one good deed.
Is it fair to deny them that one good deed on the day of judgment? I think so.
Allah gave you a lifetime to say SubhanAllah walhamdulillah but instead you said derisive comments such as fat and ugly… You had a whole lifetime, and did what you did. Now you come to Allah for one good deed?
One letter of the Qur’an is going to be worth more for you than your most valuable possession.
So are we putting in the effort?
