Small Deeds are Always Counted

small deeds

Don’t underestimate good or bad deeds, even if they are trivial. Because all deeds even the small one, even nobody knows it, Allah will count that deed. And Allah will reward that deed with another good in the world or in the Hereafter.

In a hadith from Abu Dharr (may Allah blesses him), that the Prophet (ﷺ) says,

أعمال أمتي حسنها وسيئها، فوجدت في محاسن أعمالها الأذى يماط عن الطريق، ووجدت في مساوىء أعمالها النخاعة تكون في المسجد لا تدفن‏

“The deeds of my people, good and bad, were presented before me, and I found the removal of harmful objects from the road among their good deeds, and phlegm which might be in a mosque left unburied among their evil deeds” [Saheeh Muslim].

In this hadith the Prophet (ﷺ) explains the good and bad deeds. Allah The Almighty shows the human’s deeds to him, He shows him the good and bad deeds of the ummah.

the Prophet (ﷺ) finds out that one of the good deeds is removing harms from the street. Also, cleaning the mosques from what anything that harms it or rubbish.

This hadith also indicates that it is not permissible to despise goodness. And also we should not underestimate the sin even if it is small one.
