Hadith on Sincerity: Allah Looks to the Heart and Deeds

📖Sahih Muslim 2564 c
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: Verily Allah does not look to your faces and your wealth but He looks to your heart and to your deeds.

  • This hadith (saying of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) emphasizes that Allah (God) does not judge people based on their outward appearance, such as their physical features or their material possessions. Instead, Allah looks at the inner qualities of a person’s heart, such as their sincerity, intentions, and actions. This highlights the importance of cultivating good character, performing good deeds, and having pure intentions, as these are the things that are most valued in the sight of Allah.
