Let's Get Rewarded! :D

I was watching a video and was inspired by a story told in the video. (:

“There was a guy who was very poor, and one day he felt very sad for he had no food to feed his wife and son. So he went to the mosque and cried so bad. The imam of the mosque saw him and knew his troubles, so he brought him to a river, and asked him to perform a 2 rakaat prayer, and then in the name of Allah, throw his net into the river.

With Allah the Almighty’s power, he caught a big fish. So he went to the market to sell it, and bought a loaf of bread to bring home to his family. He was very happy then, but on his way home, he saw a mother and her son who was starving, just like his own wife and son at home. He suddenly looked at them like his own wife and son, and so he gave the loaf of bread to them. The little boy smiled, while the mother cried.

The guy went home, with nothing for his family. But then someone knocked on his door and asked for him. They gave him money and told him that it was his late father’s money, which they borrowed when he was alive. So that guy praised Allah that he could now feed his family, and he became rich that he could give 1000 dinar at a time for charity.

One night, he dreamt of Hari Kiamat. Where his name was called, and his deeds was counted. His evil doings weighs so much heavier than his good deeds which weighted like a bundle of cottons, it turned out to be that his charities wasn’t sincere so it was worth so little.

Then the angels asked him, do you have anything else to offer. It turned out that the only thing he could offer was the little loaf of bread he gave to the mother and her son, and that small deed made his good deeds weigh so much more, but it still wasn’t enough.

Then he was asked again, do you have anything else to offer? It turned out that what is left is the little boy’s smile, which made his good deeds and evil doings balanced.

Then he was asked again, do you have anything else to offer? It turned out that the mother’s tears are as heavy as an ocean of tears and so his good deeds outweigh his evil doings.

And then he was told that he was saved from the suffering of the Hell. At that moment, he thanked Allah swt The Rewarder for rewarding him with the loaf of bread and for saving him from the Hell-fire.”


Allah will reward our good deeds even if it is so small as small as half a date or a weight of an atom. That little deed he did outweighs thousands of dinar he gave away for charity. So why do we seek for reward from human being, when He promised reward for even the smallest thing we do?

Mathematically, we know that any number in ratio with an infinite number approaches zero. Whatever happiness that we get now, whatever wealth that we own, whatever reward that people award us, whatever love, money, bungalows or Ferrari, in ratio to Allah’s Paradise that He promised to reward us with, is zero. Because what Allah give is so much than we can ever imagine.

So give, sincerely, and Allah The Rewarder will reward us.

Sometimes while doing good deeds to increase our rewards we may commit a sin or we have committed many before and so sometimes we doubt that Allah will appreciate our good deeds. But remember that Allah is Forgiving, Appreciative. Rest assured that he will forgive and appreciate your good deeds. So seek for His forgiveness and do good deeds in the name of Allah.

What are you waiting for? Let's get rewarded! :D

Ever-Thankful and The Supreme Rewarder.
