A man asked Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) what was the mark whereby he might know the reality of his faith.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “If thou derive pleasure from the good which thou hast performed and thou be grieved for the evil which thou hast committed, thou art a true believer.”
The man said. “In what doth a fault really consist?”
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “When action pricketh thy conscience, forsake it.”
All actions are judged by the motive prompting them.
