The Sixth Virtue: Action

Abdessalam Yassine

January 25, 2024

Īmān consists of conviction in the heart, testimony with the tongue, and actions of the body. Those who have īmān are only known by good deeds. God says: “Those who have faith and do righteous deeds, for them is every good and a beautiful place of return.”

Those who work for this world are among those who will be “working in exhaustion and loss, entering a blazing Fire.” Such are the hypocrites who make a show of their deeds. And those who “strive for the Hereafter as is due while they are true in faith” “will enter the Garden wherein they are provided with abundance beyond any account.” And those who strive further to attain the Pleasure of God, closeness to Him and the bliss of gazing upon His Face are the people of iḥsān. “And God loves the people of iḥsān.”
