The best deeds

Illustrated by @nablinsky

The Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him (pbuh) said in the following narrations:

  • “Do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately and know that your deeds will not make you enter Paradise, and that the most beloved deed to Allah is the most regular and constant even if it were little.” (al-Bukhari 6464)
  • “The most beloved of deeds according to Allah are the prayer in its earliest time, then to treat the parents in an excellent manner, and then jihad (striving) in the path of Allah.” (al-Bukhari 2630; Muslim 85)
  • “The most beloved of deeds to Allah is that you die and yet your tongue is still moist from the remembrance of Allah.” (Ibn Hibban 918)
  • “There is nothing heavier in the scales of the Hereafter than good character.” (at-Tirmidhi 2002)
  • “The best of all deeds is to have faith in Allah alone, then jihad and then an accepted Hajj; they surpass all other deeds like the distance between the rising and setting of the sun.” (al-Mu’jam al-Kabīr 17227)
  • “The best of all deeds is that you bring happiness to your Muslim brother, pay off his debt or feed him bread.” (al-Asbahani 1/214, hasan according to al-Albani)
