All Good in the Good deeds and All Evil in the Bad deeds

All Good in the Good deeds and All Evil in the Bad deeds
Sheikh Ali Al-Hudhaifi, Imam and Khateeb of the Prophet's Mosque in Madina said there is all good in the good deeds and all evil in the bad deeds.
In his Friday sermon at the Prophet's Mosque in Madina, he said good deeds are a cause for good in this world and the Hereafter.
He called upon Muslims not to be miserly in doing good deeds at any time for the believer does not know which good deed will tip the scales. He said doing little good deeds but quite often turns them into big and blessed deeds. He asked: "Then how about the big good deeds?"
He said if a Muslim carries out his obligations and has given something in charity, he is on the way to being saved from the Hellfire and on the way to Paradise. He said that there are many ways of doing good deeds and being charitable. Al-Hudhaifi stressed that a Muslim should be keen to do good deeds even if they are few and keep away from sins.
Sheikh Al-Hudhaifi said virtuous deeds are of three kinds. First are the deeds that benefit the person himself, like prayer (salat), Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), fasting, etc. Second are the virtuous deeds that benefit others like being kind to yourself and others.
Third is keeping away from doing evil to others or harming them by word or deed.
