Will Allah really weight our deeds or is it just metaphorical?
« on: November 05, 2015, 06:05:35 am »
I mean it is well known accepted belief of Muslims that on judgement day Allah will count (or weight) the deeds of people and whoever's bad deeds outnumber good deeds will go to hell. Is this justice? Is this concept supported in Quran?? If that's the case then no one will go to heaven! Why are Muslims so scared about their salvation? Why do they think we have to be REALLY REALLY REALLY nice and righteous like angels to earn heaven? Is this what Allah said?

May Allah forgive me if I said anything wrong.

As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

First of all, it is only Allah Almighty alone who determines what deeds to count and don't.  A Believer must have a clean heart in order for his/her good deeds to count:

[026:089]  "But only he (will prosper) that brings to God a sound heart;

[037:084]  Behold! he approached his Lord with a sound heart.

So it isn't like a game where you collect points.  The intentions of the person in all of what he/she does are what determines whether the person is True or false:

[033:005] Call them after their fathers. That is more equitable in the sight of ALLAH. But if you know not their fathers, then they are your brothers in Faith and your friends. And there is no blame on you in respect of any mistake you may unintentionally make in this matter; but you will be called to account for that which your hearts purpose. And ALLAH is Most Forgiving. Ever Merciful.

[002:225]  God will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts; and He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing.

[004:106] but ask pardon of God for thy wrong intention, since God is indulgent and merciful.

And after all is settled with Allah Almighty, then and only then will Allah Almighty take into consideration the weight of your scale.  But your scale will be put together only by Allah Almighty with the following factors applied to it:

1-  Allah Almighty's Mercy.
2-  Allah Almighty's Forgiveness.
3-  Allah Almighty's Justice.
4-  Allah Almighty's Wrath.
5-  Allah Almighty's Judgment.

Only Allah Almighty alone will balance all of these in your scale as He, the Almighty, Pleases.  No one can tell which sin will be forgiven and which will be punished, because there are many factors that will be factored into it such as:

1-  Age (if he/she is less than or more than 40.  This is mentioned in the Holy Quran.  See link below)
2-  Situation the person was in.
3-  Intention.
4-  How he was brought up.

And so many other ones.  For ample more details, visit the following links:

Do Hajj and Prayers in certain places and times clean all of the sins:

As always, you won't find these claims in the Holy Quran.  And these are very big claims; that your sins of the past, present and also future ones (see below) will be forgiven.  So, they would've been mentioned by Allah Almighty in the Holy Quran if they were true.  But these are lies that were invented on Islam.  Many hadiths that exist in the sahih collections were proven to be fabricated lies on the mouth of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and his companions:

www.answering-christianity.com/warning.htm

This is why what the Glorious Quran doesn't reject is accepted as CLOSEST TO THE TRUTH, and not absolute Truth (only the Quran is Absolute Truth).  Otherwise, it belongs to the garbage.  I don't believe those hadiths are true, because they contradict the Glorious Quran.  There are hadiths that speak about:

1-  Hajj cleaning all of the sins.

2-  Praying in Jerusalem or in Mecca or in Medina will bring 1000s of times more good deeds than praying in regular Mosques.

3-  Some prayers and fastings remove sins of the past and of the future.

I believe those hadiths are all lies.  Their substance is worthless and it clashes with the Holy Quran's Divine Message in the Noble Verses that I mentioned above and in many others.  This is because:

1-  Praying in certain places and/or in certain times has nothing to do with intentions and with having a clean heart.

2-  If such thing is true, then Allah Almighty would've covered it in the Glorious Quran.  Forgiving all of the sins of the past, present and future isn't big deal enough to be mentioned in the Glorious Quran?  Seriously??  Are we really that ridiculous??  Yes, according to the cultists that count themselves on Islam, and Islam is innocent from them, yes we are.

3-  The biggest hypocrites from among the Muslims had always been from among the "very religious" cultists, because they use Islam to validate their hypocrisies and falsehoods.

4-  You'll find that the most straight forward Muslims are the ones that are in the Middle.  They're not to the far right nor to the far left.  And this is how a Muslim should be anyway:

[002:143] Thus We have appointed you a middle nation, that ye may be witnesses against mankind, and that the messenger may be a witness against you. And We appointed the qiblah which ye formerly observed only that We might know him who followeth the messenger, from him who turneth on his heels. In truth it was a hard (test) save for those whom Allah guided. But it was not Allah's purpose that your faith should be in vain, for Allah is Full of Pity, Merciful toward mankind.



What about the Qadr Night during Ramadan?  Isn't it better than 1000 Months?

[097:001]  We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
[097:002]  And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
[097:003]  The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
[097:004]  Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by God's permission, on every errand:
[097:005]  Peace!...This until the rise of morn!


The Night of Power is better than 1000 months because:

1-  The Holy Quran was revealed in It.
2-  The Spirit and the Angels will come down in It.

Nothing about a good deed being equal to 1000s of normal good deeds is mentioned.  Yet, we have false hadiths that say if you fast in this night, then your sins of the past and in the future will be forgiven!  So using this rotten logic, then I don't have to do anything else during the whole year except to fast this night.  In fact, just fast ONE RAMADAN in my whole life is more than enough, because my sins of the past and future will be forgiven, because I would have had fasted during the Night of Power in just this one month.

And who said that the Night of Power's Blessings are limited to those who fast in It anyway??  Does the Holy Quran say that?  Do you read that you must FAST IN THIS NIGHT in order to receive Allah Almighty's Mercy, Forgiveness, Guidance and Blessings?  No.  Allah Almighty only talked about this Night being a very special Night, because the Holy Quran was revealed in It and because the Spirit and Angels come down in It.

The claim about fasting in this Night will remove your past, current and future sins is a lie!  These are all lies that were invented on Islam.



What about Allah Almighty Multiplying the Good Deeds in the Glorious Quran?

Allah Almighty Said:

[042:019] Allah is Gracious to His servants. He supplies (ample) provisions to whom He wants; He is the Mighty and the Powerful.
[042:020] We multiply the benefits for those who want to reap the worth (of their deeds) in the afterlife. We grant the benefits in this world to those who seek the fruits of their labor, right here in this world.


Allah Almighty would multiply your deeds based on your intentions, clean heart, piety, charity, justice, ethics and morals.  It is about how True you are.  No mention about praying or fasting in certain places or times at all in the Glorious Quran; let alone the garbage about erasing your FUTURE SINS and the past and current ones.  The Noble Verses that speak about the intentions, clean heart, piety, charity, justice, ethics and morals are far too many to list here.  But 100s of them are listed here in my detailed analysis of the entire Glorious Quran:

www.answering-christianity.com/quran_moral_code.htm
www.answering-christianity.com/believers_can_not_be_unjust.htm




Changing evil deeds for Good Deeds:

If the person truly wins the Favor of Allah Almighty through his good heart and intentions, then he might get many of his/her evil deeds converted into good deeds after they get forgiven:

[025:070] Except those who repent, believe and perform righteous acts. For such ones Allah will exchange their bad deeds with good ones. And Allah is the most Forgiving, the most Merciful!

[027:011] "But if any have done wrong and have thereafter substituted good to take the place of evil, truly, I am Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Those that have bad deeds being more will be punished in hell for appointed time. Then due to the mercy of the Creator, they will enter heaven.

Quote
“Allah has one hundred (degrees of) mercy, of which He has shared one between all of creation, by virtue of which you show mercy and compassion towards one another and the wild animals show compassion towards their young. And He has kept back ninety-nine (degrees of) mercy by virtue of which He will show mercy to His slaves on the Day of Resurrection.”
