The People are Of Four Types, and The Deeds are Six – ‘As-Saheehah’ of Shaikh al-Albaanee

(From ‘As-Saheehah’ (no. 2604) of Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah):

From Khuraym ibn Faatik al-Asadee -radiyallaahu `anhu- that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said:

<<The people are four, and the deeds are six.

So the people are:

[i] one granted plenty in this world and in the Hereafter, and
[ii] one granted plenty in this world, poor in the Hereafter and,
[iii] one poor in this world, granted plenty in the Hereafter and,
[iv] one wretched in this world and in the Hereafter;

and the deeds are:

[i & ii] The two which are binding, and
[iii & iv] like for like, and
[v] ten times more, and
[vi] seven hundred times more:

[i & ii] So the two which are binding are:

Whoever dies as a Muslim, a Believer, not associating anything with Allaah – then Paradise is binding for him; and whoever dies as a Disbeliever – then the Fire is binding for him; and

[iii & iv] Whoever intends an evil deed but does not do it, and Allaah knows that his heart felt it and he desired it, then it is written as a good deed for him; and whoever intended an evil deed then it is not written against him; and whoever did it then it is written as one, and it is not multiplied for him, and

[v] whoever did a good deed – then ten times its like is written for him, and [vi] whoever spends something in Allaah’s cause, then it is multiplied for him seven hundred times over. >>

Reported by Ahmad (4/345), Ibn Hibbaan (no.31), and Ibn Abee Shaybah in his ‘Musnad’ (2/38/2).

Shaikh al-Albaanee declared its chain of narration to be ‘Saheeh’.
