Reward for Good People
Surah ‘Aali- ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran -3),
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
194. Our Lord! And give us that which Thou hast promised to us by Thy messenger; and confound us not upon the Day of Resurrection. Lo! Thou breakest not the tryst.
195. So their Lord hath heard them (and He saith): Lo! I suffer not the work of any worker, male or female, to be lost. Ye precede one from another. So those who migrated and were driven forth from their homes and suffered damage for My Cause, and fought and were slain, verily I shall remit their evil deeds from them and verily I shall bring them into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. A reward from Allah. And with Allah is the fairest of rewards.
194. Rabbanaaa wa ‘aatinaa maa wa-‘attanaa ‘alaa rusulika wa laa tukh-zinaa Yawmal-Qiyaamah. ‘Innaka laa tukh-liful-mii-‘aad.
195. Fastajaaba lahum Rab-buhum ‘annii laaa ‘uzii-‘u ‘amala ‘aamilim- minkum-min- zakarin ‘aw ‘unsaa. Ba’-zu-kum-mim- ba’z.

They pray from Allah Almighty who ponder and consider thoughtfully, “O our Lord! You have promised to us by Your Messenger (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon him) regarding prevalence upon the Infidels in the world and dwelling place in the Paradise on the Day of Resurrection, Keep that promise, certainly You do not break the tryst.
Allah Almighty commands that He does not waste the work of any worker. “As you sow so you shall reap”. He/she shall get produce of any work, who will perform, male or female. Everybody of you will receive complete retaliation of his/her deeds. Those persons, who left their beloveds, relatives and native land in the Way of Allah Almighty, caused to plunder their property and wealth, were driven forth from their homes and suffered damage for His Cause, and fought and were slain, verily they are such people from whom He will remit their evil deeds. Verily He will bring them into the Gardens (Paradise) underneath which the rivers flow.
The best reward of good deeds and labor is from Allah Almighty and with Him is the fairest of rewards. Summary of Islam is that the mankind should remain attentive towards Allah Almighty in each condition, what he wants to beg, that should be begged only from Him and he/she should act upon that Guidance without any dispute which He has bestowed upon His most gracious Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him).
