A Thousand Good Deeds Daily

Sounds like a lot of hard work is required to have a thousand good deeds on your scales daily, right?

الَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنبُلَةٍ مِّائَةُ حَبَّةٍ وَاللَّهُ يُضَاعِفُ لِمَن يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed which grows seven spikes, in each spike is a hundred grains. Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills, for Allah is vast and knowing.

Surat Al-Baqarah 2:261


On the contrary, it’s not difficult at all. All you need to say Subhan Allah a hundred times.

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:
أَيَعْجِزُ أَحَدُكُمْ أَنْ يَكْسِبَ، كُلَّ يَومٍ أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ؟ فَسَأَلَهُ سَائِلٌ مِن جُلَسَائِهِ: كيفَ يَكْسِبُ أَحَدُنَا أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ؟ قالَ: يُسَبِّحُ مِئَةَ تَسْبِيحَةٍ، فيُكْتَبُ له أَلْفُ حَسَنَةٍ، أَوْ يُحَطُّ عنْه أَلْفُ خَطِيئَةٍ
-رواه مسلم

The Prophet of Allah ﷺ said: “Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) a day?” Someone from the gathering asked, “How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah?” The Prophet ﷺ said: “Glorify Allah a hundred times by just saying “Subhanallah” and a Good deeds will be written for you, or a thousand sins will be wiped away.” – Sahih Muslim:2073

وقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:
مَا تَصَدَّقَ أَحَدٌ بِصَدَقَةٍ مِنْ طَيِّبٍ وَلَا يَقْبَلُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا الطَّيِّبَ إِلَّا أَخَذَهَا الرَّحْمَنُ بِيَمِينِهِ وَإِنْ كَانَتْ تَمْرَةً فَتَرْبُو فِي كَفِّ الرَّحْمَنِ حَتَّى تَكُونَ أَعْظَمَ مِنْ الْجَبَلِ كَمَا يُرَبِّي أَحَدُكُمْ فَلُوَّهُ أَوْ فَصِيلَهُ
-رواه مسلم

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
None gives charity from what is good, for Allah only accepts what is good, but that the Merciful takes it with His right hand. Even if it is a date, it is nurtured in the hand of the Merciful until it becomes greater than a mountain, just as one of you nurtures his young horse or camel.
-Sahih Muslim:1014
