Today’s Hadith: Insignificant Good Deed

Rasulullah (PBUH) said: “Save yourselves from the fire of Hell even if it be by giving away a bit of a date, or by uttering a good word.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Even a most ordinary good has its weight and value, and the same is true of evil. Even a most ordinary evil will be considered and taken into account; it will not be overlooked. Therefore, no good act however small and insignificant should be left undone, for many such good deeds can collect and be regarded as a major good in the reckoning with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). Likewise, even a most ordinary evil deed should not be committed, for a large number of such ordinary errors can become serious sins.

Rasulullah (PBUH) encouraged us to do good deeds, even if they appeared to be very small. He (PBUH) said: “Do not look upon any good work as insignificant, even if it be emptying a bucket into the vessel of one asking for water, or receiving a brother of yours with a pleasant face.” In an advice to women he said: “O Muslim women, no woman should look upon sending a gift to her neighbor as mean, even if it be the hoof of a goat.” [Sahih Bukhari]

“Truth is like a surgery. It hurts but cures. Lie is like a pain killer. It gives relief but has side effects forever.”
