As for those in paradise, they will not enter it solely based on their good deeds. It is the grace of God which will ultimately carry them there. The final Prophet of Allaah (PBUH) said in this regard, “Observe moderation, but if you fail, try to do as much as you can moderately, and be happy. For, none will enter paradise only because of his deeds.” The [companions of the Prophet] said, “O Messenger of Allaah! Not even you?” He replied, “Not even I, were it not that Allaah envelop me in His mercy and grace. And bear in mind that the deed most loved by Allaah is one done constantly, even though it is small.” However, God’s grace is not arbitrary. It is based on both correct faith and righteous deeds. In chapter Aal ‘Imraan, Allaah says: “Whoever brings a good deed, shall have [the value of] ten like it, and whoever brings an evil deed will only be punished with one like it, and they will not be wronged.” Qur’aan, 6:160.
