Billions of Rewards

Ubada bin Thamit (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The one who seeks forgiveness on behalf of the Believing men and women will be given rewards equivalent to the number of Believing men and women” (Tabrani).

Present estimates put the number of Muslims in the world at more than one billion. Thus the door to earning numerous rewards is open to us. We will only realise the true value of these rewards on the day of Qiyamah when people will be in great difficulty as a result of their evil deeds being heavier on the scales. It should also be remembered that fulfilment of all the fundamentals of Deen is vitally important. One cannot expect to gain salvation by merely reciting some wazifas, while at the same time the fardh actions are being omitted and major sins are being perpetrated.
