Demanding Reward for Your Deeds [Hikam 121 & 122]
Virtues of Ashura: 10th of Muharram
“When you seek a recompense for a deed, the existence of sincerity in it is demanded of you in return. As for the insincere, the feeling of security from chastisement suffices him”.
“Do not seek recompense for a deed whose doer was not you. It suffices you as a recompense for the deed that He accepts it.”
Is it proper to ask Allah for reward after having done a good deed?
The Shaykh discusses this in light of the above aphorisms.
