MULTIPLICATION OF ONE’S DEEDS IS BASED ON ONE’S PERFECTION OF ISLAM
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه reported that the Messenger of Allah Ta’ala said,
“if one of you makes his faith excellent, he will have recorded for every good deed ten-fold to seven hundred fold. And for every evil deed he does, he will have recorded on similar to it, until he meets Allah”
- Muslim in Kitab Al-Iman (book of faith) no. 129
The Meaning of the Hadith:
Thus the increase of good deeds by ten-fold is absolute, and the increase beyond that depends on that perfection of one’s Islam and the sincerity of the intention and the need for the deed and its virtue, such as paying the expenses of Jihad, Hajj, one’s relatives, Orphans, and the poor when they are in need of financial support.
