Allah’s Rewards for the Servant’s Deeds

The Compassionate Allah, out of Mercy, has invited all His servants to perform obligatory deeds, such as praying, fasting, Hajj, Jihad, almsgiving, charity, serving people, observing people’s rights, and avoiding wrongdoing. He has necessitated for Himself rewarding the servants for their deeds. Allah has declared in the Holy Qur’¡n:

وَالَّذِينَ يُمَسِّكُونَ بِالْكِتَابِ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلاةَ إِنَّا لاَ نُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُصْلِحِينَ.

And as for those who hold fast by the Book and keep up prayer, surely We do not waste the reward of the right doers. (7/170)

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ.

Surely, Allah does not waste the reward of the doers of good. (9/120)

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ، إِنَّا لاَ نُضِيعُ أَجْرَ مَنْ أَحْسَنَ عَمَلاً.

Surely, as for those who believe and do good, We do not waste the reward of him who does a good work. (18/30)

The Merciful Allah has stated some kinds of rewards for His believer servants in His Qur’¡n: 1. Lofty reward, 2. Bountiful reward, 3. Grateful reward, 4. Great reward, and 5. Twice reward.

لِلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُوا مِنْهُمْ وَاتَّقَوْا أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ.

Those among them who do good to others and guard against evil shall have a great reward. (3:172)

إِنَّ الْمُصَّدِّقِينَ وَالْمُصَّدِّقَاتِ وَأَقْرَضُوا اللَّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا يُضَاعَفُ لَهُمْ وَلَهُمْ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ.

Surely the charitable men and the charitable women and those who set apart for Allah a goodly portion, it shall be doubled for them and they shall have a noble reward. (57:18)

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ.

Those who believe and do good, they shall surely have a reward never to be cut off. (41:8)

وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ مَغْفِرَةٌ وَأَجْرٌ كَبِيرٌ.

As for those who believe and do good, they shall have forgiveness and a great reward. (35:7)

أُوْلَئِكَ يُؤْتَوْنَ أَجْرَهُمْ مَرَّتَيْنِ بِمَا صَبَرُوا وَيَدْرَءُونَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ السَّيِّئَةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ.

These shall be granted their reward twice, because they are steadfast and they repel their evil with good and spent out of what We have given them. (28:54)

The rewards of those who believe and do good are permanent rewards and only Allah is capable of granting them. The traditions have mentioned parts of Allah’s rewards. Some of these traditions, which are in fact explanations of Qur’¡nic verses are presented here. Imam `Al¢ (a.s) has stated:

ثَوَابُ عَمَلِكُمْ أفْضَلُ مِنْ عَمَلِكُمْ.

The rewards of your good deeds are superior to the deeds themselves(  Tafsir Exegesis Mo’in: 299).

ثَوَابُ الصَّبْرِ أعْلَى الثَّوَابِ.

The greatest reward is the reward for patience (over obedience, calamities and wrongdoing)(  Tafsir Exegesis Mo’in: 299).

إنَّ أعْظَمَ المَثُوبَةِ مَثُوبَةُ الإنْصَافِ.

In fact the greatest reward is for fairness(  Ghurar al-°ikam: 394, Al-Insaf wa Madha…, tradition 9106; Mu’in Tafsir: 299.).

ثَوَابُ الجِهَادِ أعْظَمُ الثَّوَابِ.

The reward for Jihad is the greatest reward(  Ghurar al-°ikam: 333, Al-Fasl Al-Thalith fi Al-Jihad…, tradition 7663; Mu’in Tafsir: 299.).

Imam al-B¡qir (a.s) stated:

النَّائِمُ بِمَكَّةَ كَالمُجْتَهِدِ فِي البُلْدَانِ، وَالسَّاجِدُ بِمَكَّةَ كَالمُتَشَحِّطِ بِدَمِهِ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ، وَمَنْ خَلَّفَ حَاجّاً فِي أهْلِهِ كَانَ لَـهُ كَأجْرِهِ حَتَّى كَأنَّهُ يَسْتَلِمُ الحَجَرَ.

The pilgrim who spends a night in Mecca is like one who is attempting in various cities. One who prostrates in Mecca is like martyr in Allah’s way. One who looks after the pilgrim’s family in his absence has an equal reward as the pilgrim, and it is as if he has touched al-Hajar al-Aswad (the Black Stone).

The Prophet of Islam (s.a) stated:

رِبَاطُ يَوْمٍ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ خَيْرٌ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا وَمَا عَلَيْهَا.

Fighting in Allah’s cause for a single day is preferred to the whole world and what is inside it(  Tafsir Mu’in: 193.).

Prophet Mu¦ammad (s.a) also stated:

حَرَسُ لَيْلَةٍ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أفْضَلُ مِنْ ألْفِ لَيْلَةٍ يُقَامُ لَيْلُهَا وَيُصَامُ نَهَارُهَا.

One night of guarding Allah’s cause is better than a thousand nights of worshipping and days of fasting(  Tafsir Mu’in: 193.).

إنَّ العَبْدَ إذَا تَخَلَّى بِسَيِّدِهِ فِي جَوْفِ اللَّيْلِ المُظْلِمِ وَنَاجَاهُ، أثْبَتَ اللهُ النُّورَ فِي قَلْبِهِ.

When a servant speaks to his Lord in the darkness of night Allah would maintain a permanent light in his heart(2 Mustadrak al-Was¡’il: 5/ 207, Bab 28, tradition 5708; Tafsir Mu’in: 459.).

Imam `Al¢ (a.s) said:

قِيَامُ اللَّيْلِ مَصَحَّة البَدَنِ وَرِضَا الرَّبِّ وَتَمَسُّكٌ بِأخْلاَقِ النَّبِيِّينَ وَتَعَرُّضٌ لِرَحْمَتِهِ.

Worshipping Allah at night brings healing the body, Allah’s pleasure and the prophets’ habit for the servant(3 Was¡’ilaAl-Sh¢`ah: 8/ 150, Bab 39, tradition 10275.).

The Messenger of Allah (s.a) stated:

إنَّ العَبْدَ لَيُؤمَرُ بِهِ إلَى النَّارِ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ فَيُسْحَبُ؛ فَيَقُولُ المُؤمِنُونَ وَالمُؤمِنَاتُ: يَا رَبِّ، هَذا الَّذِي كَانَ يَدْعُو لَنَا، فَشَفِّعْنَا فِيهِ. فَيُشَفِّعُهُمُ اللهُ فَيَنْجُو.

On the Resurrection Day, Allah orders to take a servant to Hell. The believer men and women say: ‘O Lord! This person always prayed for us, so accept our intercession for him! So Allah accepts their intercession about him and he is saved.( 4 Al-K¡f¢: 2/ 507, Bab Al-Du’a’ Lil Ikhwan…, tradition 5; Rawzat Al-Wa’izin.

The Messenger of Allah (s.a) said:

ألاَ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ القُرْآنَ وَعَلَّمَهُ وَعَمِلَ بِمَا فِيهِ فَأنَا لَهُ سَائِقٌ إلَى الجَنَّةِ وَدَلِيلٌ إلَيْها.

Beware that everyone who learns Qur’¡n and teaches it to others and practices its rules I would bring and guide him to the Paradise(  Tafsir Mu’in: 496.).
