So, the formula for success is righteousness.
To do righteous works is to worship God. If we can fulfill these requirements,
then God will forgive us, and admit us into His Kingdom under His protection.
God will let us know He is with us. We will have no doubt about it
[5:9] GOD promises those who believe and lead a righteous
life forgiveness and a great recompense.
God rewards the righteous with perfect happiness, now and forever.
[20:75–76] As for those who come to Him as believers,
who had lead a righteous life, they attain the high ranks. The gardens
of Eden beneath which rivers flow, will be their abode forever. Such is
the reward for those who purify themselves.
[28:89] Those who bring good works in their records will
receive far better rewards, and they will be perfectly secure from the
horrors of that day.
[39:61] And God will save those who have maintained righteousness;
He will reward them. No harm will touch them, nor will they have any grief.
[41:30-32] Those who proclaim:
‘Our Lord is GOD,’ then lead a righteous life, the angels
descend upon them: “You shall have no fear, nor shall you grieve.
Rejoice in the good news that Paradise has been reserved for you. We are
your allies in this life, and in the Hereafter. You will have in it anything
you wish for; you will have anything you want. Such is your ultimate abode
from a Forgiver, Most Merciful.
[83:22-26] The righteous have deserved bliss. On luxurious
furnishings they watch. You recognize in their faces the joy of bliss.
Their drinks will be spiced with nectar. Its spice is like musk. This
is what the competitors should compete for.
Therefore let us race towards righteousness! And implore God to guide
us on His straight path.
