Doing Actions to please others besides Allah Ta’ala

وعن أبي سعيد بن أبي فضالة وكان من الصحابة قال سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول إذا جمع الله الأولين والآخرين يوم القيامة ليوم لا ريب فيه نادى مناد من كان أشرك في عمله لله أحدا فليطلب ثوابه من عنده فإن الله أغنى الشركاء عن الشرك  رواه الترمذي في التفسير من جامعه وابن ماجه وابن حبان في صحيحه والبيهقي (الترغيب والترهيب 1/83)

Hadhrat Abu Sa’eed bin Abi Fadhaalah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying: “When Allah Ta’ala will gather the former and the latter people on the day of Qiyaamah, the day there is no doubt regarding its occurrence, a caller will announce, ‘Whosoever carried out any action (in the world) for the sake and pleasure of someone besides Allah Ta’ala, he should go to him and seek his reward from him, for certainly Allah Ta’ala is the most independent from all partners (that one ascribes in his actions) (i.e. when one ascribes partners with Allah Ta’ala in an action, then Allah Ta’ala does not accept the action at all, instead on the day of Qiyaamah Allah Ta’ala will hand over the person to all those people for whose sake he had done the action, and he will be told that there is no reward for you from Allah Ta’ala instead you should go and receive your reward from those people for whose sake you did the action).’”

Receiving Seventy Rewards

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
