Imaam al-Shaafi’i Rahimahullaah said: ‘There is nobody except that he has someone who loves him and someone who hates him. So if that’s the case, let a person be with the people who are obedient to Allaah `Azza Wa Jall.’

Assalam alaikum,
Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that he heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, saying:--

"None of you shall be saved by his works". A man said, "Not even yourself,
O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Not even myself, unless Allah covers me
with a Mercy from Him. But strive to be right". [Sahih Muslim]

This Noble Hadith restates the Orthodox Islamic position that no one deserves recompense or Paradise (Jannah) for his/her acts of Obedience. On the otherhand, some may quote Qur'anic Verses, as in the words of Allah, Glorified and Exalted is He, such as:--

"Enter Paradise for that which you have done" (Qur'an-16:32) and

"That is Paradise, which you have been bestowed for what you did
before". (Qur'an-7:43) and similar verses that indicate that paradise
is entered by virtue of works.

These Verses do not contradict above Hadith. Rather, these verses indicate that entering Paradise is because of works....good deeds...but Divinely given success (Tawfiq) to do the works, and being guided to have sincerity in the works, and their acceptability are all [at] the Mercy of Allah Most High and His Favour.
