Reflections on the Noble Quran

Even within our Muslim community we come across people with two basic concepts

1)  Some think that as long as you believe, you don't have to bother about following the rules of good conduct, and belief alone will make you acquire Maghfarahfrom Allah Almighty on the Day of Judgment even if you had a terrible conduct during earthly life.

2)  Another set of people think the opposite.  They carry the idea that anyone who does good earthly works, e.g. is honest, charitable, kind etc. will be a winner on the Day of Judgment even if they are staunch disbelievers in Allah The Almighty.

Both views are wrong and the Noble Quran has made it clear in many Verses.  Whoever wants to be successful in the Hereafter, must believe in Allah alone and also observe good conduct as per the principles of the Glorious Quran.  Then only will Maghfarah be granted to them on the Day of Judgment. 

"Whosoever does right, whether male or female, and is a believer, him verily we shall quicken with good life, and We shall pay them a recompense in proportion to the best of what they used to do."  16:97

"And whoso desires the Hereafter and strives for it with the effort necessary, being a believer; for such, their effort finds favour (with their Rab)."   17:19

"Say: Shall We inform you who will be the greatest losers by their works ?    Those whose effort goes astray in the life of the world, and yet they reckon that they do good work.   Those are they who disbelieve in the revelations of their Rab and in the meeting with Him. Therefor their works are vain, and on the Day of Resurrection We assign no weight to them."  18:103-105

"Say: I am only a mortal like you. My Rab inspires in me that your God is only One God. And whoever hopes for the meeting with his Rab, let him do righteous work, and make none sharer of the worship due unto his Rab."   18:110

You're right, a lot of Muslims misinterpret or misunderstand this issue even though Allah Almighty has clarified it in countless Ayats of the Noble Quran. 

Thanks for posting it sister.  I hope it now sits in the minds of the deniers.

Alhumdulilah, correct 110%.   

"Whosoever surrenders his purpose to Allah while doing good, he verily hath grasped the firm hand-hold. Unto Allah belongs the sequel of all things."  31:22

Surrendering to Allah Almighty alone is the first step toward Iman (Faith) and the literal meaning of Islam is to surrender one's purpose completely to Allah alone.   This is the beginning of the path of Guidance.  It has to be enhanced and strengthened by doing good practical deeds.   All praise be to Allah alone.
