Hadrat Abu Hurayrah ( radiallahu anhu ) narrates that Rasulullah ( sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ) said: ” ALLAH Ta’ala does not look at your bodies and your appearances. Instead, he looks at your hearts. ” This means that ALLAH Ta’ala does not accept actions that merely appear to be good externally while they are devoid of sincerity and attention from the heart. For example, a person may be occupied in a certain act of ibaadah.
Apparently, he may be engaged in an act of ibaadah while in his heart he is oblivious to what he is doing. The heart cannot even discern whether he is standing in front of ALLAH Ta’ala or busy doing something else.

Accounting of deeds on the day of judgement
99. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “No person will be able to move from his place on the day of judgement until the following four questions are not posed to him: (1) How did he spend his life? (2) How much did he practice on the masâ’il that he had knowledge of? (3) From where did he acquire his wealth and where did he spend it? (4) In what did he utilise his body?”
In short, did he do all this according to the Sharî‘ah or according to the dictates of his desires.
100. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “All rights will have to be fulfilled on the day of judgement so much so that a hornless goat will take its recompense from a goat with horns.” That is, if the latter killed the former unjustly.
Remembering jannah and jahannam
101. In a sermon, Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “There are two things which are very great – do not forget them.” That is, jannah and jahannam. Upon saying this, he began weeping profusely so much so that his blessed beard got wet. He then said: “I swear in the name of that being in whose hands is my life that if you were to come to know that which I know about the hereafter, you will go away into the jungles and walk around pouring sand over your heads.”
Note: O women! We have now mentioned 101 Ahâdîth. Many other Ahâdîth have been mentioned at various places in this book. Our beloved Rasûl sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “If anyone from my ummah learns 40 Ahâdîth and thereafter passes them on to others, he will rise with the ‘ulamâ on the day of judgement.” Make an effort to read these Ahâdîth to others. Inshâ Allah, you will also rise with the ‘ulamâ on the day of judgement. Such a great bounty can be attained with great ease.
