Good Deed

Description: The Prophet (S) said, ‘I have found the good deed to be a light in the heart, an adornment on the face, and strength in action, but I have found the sin to be blackness in the heart, weakness in action, and a blemish on the face.’

رسولُ اللّٰهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) : وَجَدْتُ الحَسَنةَ نُوراً في القَلبِ ، وزَيْناً في الوَجْهِ ، وقُوّةً في العَملِ، ووَجَدتُ الخَطيئةَ سَواداً في القَلبِ ، ووَهْناً في العَملِ ، وشَيْناً في الوَجْهِ.

Description: Imam Zayn al- ‘Aabidin (a.s.) said, ‘Woe unto him whose ones exceed his tens’ - by this he meant that the bad deed is counted one, but the good deeds are counted as ten.

قال الإمامُ زينُ العابدينَ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : يا سَوْأَتاهْ لِمَن غَلَبتْ إحْداتُهُ عَشَراتِهِ ـ يُريدُ أنَّ السَّيّئةَ بواحِدَةٍ والحَسَنةَ بعَشرَةٍ‏ـ.

Description: Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said, ‘When the believer excels in his good deed, Allah will enhance each one of his good deeds to equal seven hundred, for Allah, Blessed and most High, says: “Allah enhances severalfold whomever He wishes.”

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : إذا أحْسَنَ المُؤمنُ عمَلَهُ ، ضاعَفَ اللّه‏ُ عَمَلَهُ لكُلِّ حَسَنةٍ سَبعَمائةٍ ، وذلكَ قولُ اللّه‏ِ تباركَ وتعالي : «واللّه‏ُ يُضاعِفُ لِمَنْ يَشاءُ».
