Forgiveness over Removing a Thorn From the Road

Friends! What a wonderful Court is that [the Court of Allah]. There, pardon is decreed over slight acts. It is documented in the Hadeeth that a certain person will have no good deeds with him besides that he removed a thorn from the road one day. Apparently, this is a slight and insignificant act. But this was appreciated by Allah Ta’ala and he was pardoned on account of this.

 

Friends! Do not treat lightly any act of good no matter how small it may be. Sometimes a “small” act is accepted, whilst grand acts which pleased one will be rejected
