Abu Dharr Al-Ghifari (Allah be pleased with him) asked:
“Messenger of Allah, tell me about an act, that if a servant of Allah does it, he enters Paradise" The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him ) answered. "To believe in Allah and the Day of Judgement." Abu Dharr said, "Messenger of Allah, there must be deeds beside the belief." The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Let him show satisfaction with the will of Allah regarding whatever He has provided him.” Abu Dharr asked “Messenger of Allah, what if he is too poor to have anything to be satisfied with?” The Prophet (pbuh) said “Let him enjoin right and forbid wrong.” Abu Dharr said “Messenger of Allah he cannot do that because he stammers and is incapable of expressing himself.” The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Let him do things for someone who is incapable of doing them.” Abu Dharr said, “Messenger of Allah, he himself is too clumsy to do anything for anybody.” The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Let him help a weak person.” Abu Dharr said, “He himself is too weak to help anybody.” The Prophet (pbuh) said “What is that friend of yours good for? Let him not harm people.” Abu Dharr said, “If he does that, will he enter Paradise?” The Prophet (pbuh) said “Any Muslim who does any of these things, I’ll take him by the hand till he enters Paradise.” (Narrated by Al-Tabarani)
