The deeds of any of you will not save him from Hell. Not even you, O Allah’s Messenger, they asked? He responded, not even I unless Allah bestows His mercy on me.

Some of this earth are fertile soil that absorbed the rainwater which brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance. Another part of it is hard land which stored up the water and Allah made it beneficial for the people, so they drank from it, watered their animals and irrigated the cultivated land with it. And a portion of it is barren and can neither hold the water nor bring forth vegetation. The first is the example of the person who comprehends Allahs religion and benefited from the knowledge which Allah has revealed through me (the Prophet), learned and taught others.

And none is given a gift better and more ample than patience itself. (Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim according to Said al-Khudri).
