Even Good deeds will not save you from hell :: Misconception about Islam
Posted November 3, 2009on:
Assalam Alaykum Brother and Sisters,
Below 2 Hadith given to me by Non-Muslim(Christian) Friend saying :
YOUR GOD(ALLAH) WILL NOT SAVE YOU FROM HELL,EVEN FROM UR GUD WORKS.
HERE IS THE PROOF….
Sahih Muslim , Book 039, Number 6761:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: There is none whose deeds alone would entitle him to get into Paradise. It was said to him: And, Allah’s Messenger, not even you?… Thereupon he said: Not even I, but that my Lord wraps me in Mercy.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 470:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “The deeds of anyone of you will not save you (from the (Hell) Fire).” They said, “Even you (will not be saved by your deeds), O Allah’s Apostle?” He said, “No, even I (will not be saved) unless and until Allah bestows His Mercy on me. Therefore, do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately, and worship Allah in the forenoon and in the afternoon and during a part of the night, and always adopt a middle, moderate, regular course whereby you will reach your target (Paradise).”
MY REPLY ::
There was a man, who lived 500 years and worships Allah SWT every second..
A very good worshiper…he left his home just to worship Allah.
After his death, he was in front of Lord.
Then Allah said to Angels, take him to Jannah, due to my mercy.
When he was going, he was looking back to Allah. Then Allah stopped him and asked…What is problem.
Then he said Allah, please forgive me, I want to know why you said, I’m sending you heaven due to my mercy.
What about those 500 years, I worshiped only and only you every second.
Then Allah said to Angels, take to near Hell Gate, when he reached gate.
they opened gate, still he was so far from gate…
the hot air coming out from hell, removed all water from his body,
he became so much thirsty,then Allah said to Angel,give him one small bowl full of water.
He drinks All Water, he felt some satisfaction…
then Allah said, now, and I have given you the reward of your 500 year of worship.
Now what you will give me, for the food, for good facility,
good health, good time I gave you in world. What you will pay for that.
Then he understood point, and asked Forgiveness from Allah…
and Allah Sent him in Heaven due to His Mercy .
so,The Moral of story is No Matter How much good worshiper you are,
You will go heaven due to Allah MERCY,
NOT FOR YOUR GOOD DEEDS
AND YOU CAN GAIN ALLAH MERCY BY DOING GOOD DEEDS.
thats what that hadith says,
A Muslim who is doing all good deeds can’t guarantee paradise,not even prophets
he will go Heaven due to Allah Mercy not for his good dead done by him……
We can never thank Allah for the blessings that He has given us.
Let us use these blessings to recognize Allah before our death.
May Allah guide us on right path,forgive our sins and have mercy on us,
May Allah Forgive me if im wrong at any place,
slave of ALLAH SWT
