In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Esaal-e-Sawaab in the Quraan
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

To understand the concept of Esaal-e-Sawaab we need to reflect on the Quraan and Authentic Hadeeth.

The best of best among you are those who learn and teach the Quraan, (Ref: Sahee Al-Buhkhari, Book-61, Hadeeth 545-546).

Let us see what the Quraan (word of Allah and book of guidance for the mankind) says about Esaal-e-Sawaab:

Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) has no right to change/amend or deviate from the Quraan, (Ref: Al_Quraan_010:015, 018:027). So, any Hadeeth which contradicts the Quraan cannot be Hadeeth at all and must be deleted / removed from all the Books of Hadeeths.

For each of your actions, including the Hajj or Reciting the Quraan etc., you will get reward of what you have done, and surely DEEDS of your loved ones or others will NOT save you. (Selected References: Al_Quraan_003.030, 003.185, 006.164, 014.051, 016.111, 018.047-049, 020.015-016, 031.033, 036.054, 039.069-070, 040.017, 044.041, 045.028, 060.003, 070.010-015, 075.13, 080.034-037, 082.005, 099.007-008).

Although only one verse from the Quraan is enough, BUT when references are a lot then we need to correct our beliefs according to the Quraan immediately and not reverse.

In simple terms, Rewards of any Deeds, e.g. the Hajj or Reciting the Quraan or Salaat etc. are not Transferable. You will get rewards of what you have done not your loved ones or others.

Do they not then reflect on the Quraan? No, on their hearts there are locks. (Al_Quraan_047.024)

None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah, BUT those who Disbelieve... (Al_Quraan_040.004)

In which Hadeeth, other than this (Hadeeth of Allah), do they believe? (Al_Quran_077.050)

The Best Way to Get Allah’s Mercy:

You can get Allah’s Mercy on practically following the commandments of Allah.

And when the Quran is recited, then listen to it and remain silent, that mercy may be shown to you. And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones. (Al_Quraan_007:204-205)

We made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn? (Al_Quraan_054:017, 022, 032, 040)

If Quraan cannot convince you nothing will, open your heart towards Allah, because to him will you return and if you haven't gone through the manual (the Quraan) he has sent you and understood it properly, for sure Allah will not like it. Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

ISLAAM IS A COMPLETE DEEN, NO COMPULSION, NO DISCRIMINATION & NO NEED FOR OVER-RESEARCH TO EXPLOIT IT: (Ref: Al_Quraan.002:256 / 003:030 / 005:003 / 022:078 / 027:001-002 / 049:013)
