Previously, we discussed two pairs that always come together in the Quran.

The first pair was prayer and charity.


The second pair was reward and punishment.


The third pair is: belief and good deeds


Belief and good deeds occur together 61 times:

“…they who believe and do righteous deeds – those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.” [2:82]

And you see it over and over in the Quran.

Allah tells us that belief requires action.

That was an excellent conversation I had with my high school class the other day. Some of them said “I know plenty of people who believe in God but don’t think anything needs to follow.”

A few of their classmates replied: “What good is a belief that doesn’t lead to anything?”
