Deeds most loved by Allah.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamu Alaykom Wa Rahmat Allah

What are the greatest deeds in the Sight of Allah. I know few but i need to know more.

What i know of the greatest deeds:

Raising an orphan

Sit after congretion in fajir prayer till the sun rises and pray two Rakat for Dhuha.


Attending a funeral of a muslim for the sake of the reward from Allah.

Deeds most loved by Allah

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


A man came to the Prophet (saws) and said “ O Prophet of Allah (saws),  what is the act or deed most loved by Allah?”

The Prophet (saws) replied:  “To pray ones prayers on time.”

The man asked further:  “What (deed or act most loved by Allah) next?”

The Prophet (saws) replied:  “Obedience to ones parents.”

The man asked further:  “What (deed or act most loved by Allah) next?”

The Prophet (saws) replied: “Jihaad in the Way of Allah.”

Respected brother in Islam, although every good deed has a prescribed weight in the Scales of Justice of Allah Subhanah, in light of the above quoted narration of the Messenger of Allah (saws), the deeds most loved by Allah Subhanah are:

  1. To offer one’s obligatory prayers at their appointed times.
  2. To be dutiful to one’s parents, and,
  3.  ‘Jihaad’ in the Way of Allah Subhanah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
