For them there will be allotted a share for what they have earned. And Allah is Swift at reckoning. [Surah 2:202]

And be afraid of the Day when you shall be brought back to Allah. Then every person shall be paid what he earned, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly. [Surah 2:281]

But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall soon admit to Gardens. But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, we shall soon admit them to gardens. If any do deeds of righteousness, be they male or female – and have faith, they will enter Heaven. [Surah 4:57, 122, 124]

We shall set up scales of justice for the Day of Judgment, so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least, and if there be (no more than) the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it (to account): and enough are We to take account. [Surah 21:47]

Verily Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous deeds, to Gardens. Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous deeds [Surah 22:14,23]

Those who believe and work righteous deeds, from them shall We blot out all evil (that may be) in them, and We shall reward them according to the best of their deeds. [Surah 29:7]

That He may reward those who believe and work righteous deeds, out of his Bounty. [Surah 30:45]

If any one does a righteous deed, it ensures to the benefit of his own soul; if he does evil, it works against (his own soul). [Surah 45:15]

And to all are (assigned) degrees according to the deeds which they (have done), and in order that (Allah) may recompense their deeds, and no injustice be done to them. [Surah 46:19]

Those who avoid great sins and indecent deeds, only (falling into) small faults – certainly, your Lord is ample in forgiveness.

We sent aforetime our apostles with Clear Signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance (of Right and Wrong), that men may stand forth in justice. [Surah 57:25]

Then shall anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom’s weight of evil, shall see it. [Surah 99:7-8]

Then he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) heavy, will be in a Life of good pleasure and satisfaction. But he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) light – Will have his home in a (bottomless) Pit. And what will explain to you what this is? (It is) a Fire blazing fiercely! [Surah 101:6-10]

 

 

YAHWEH

 

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished. Where, then, is the boasting? [Romans 3:23-25, 27]

If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. What does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” [Romans 4:2-3]

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. [Romans 5:8]

What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. [Romans 6:1-4]

5If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. 6For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. [Romans 6:5-7]

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? [Romans 8:32]

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. [Romans 8:37-39]

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. [Romans 12:1]

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. [Ephesians 2:5]

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. [Ephesians 2:8-9]

…,by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death. [II Timothy 1:8-10]

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. [Titus 3:4-7]
