None can enter Paradise by Deeds Alone


The Prophet once said, "No one will enter Paradise by his deeds alone. Then he added, “Not even me, unless God covers me with His mercy." One who thinks that he can qualify for Paradise by his actions alone underestimates God and Paradise. Our deeds have no worth before the eternal blessing of Paradise in the hereafter. So, we must not harbour the pessimistic thought that we are not doing enough. We must work according to our circumstances and pray to God continuously. We must remember God much for it is the greatest of deeds. A hadith states that even a moment spent in remembering God is worth more than a thousand years spent in worship.
