Do Not Make God an Accountant
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
I dislike this idea of counting the benefits of a deed. It demeans God and the sincerity of our worship. He who treats his God like an accountant, being miserly with his deeds and bargaining for his sustenance, God will be an accountant on the Day of Judgement, Counting his deeds and misdeeds, Rewarded and Punished to the letter of the Law. And He who treats his God as a Generous Lord, adhering out of hope for Divine Mercy and Sustenance, will find that His Generosity is beyond reckoning to His servants. And he who treats his God as a friend will discover that the servant has rights to His Immensity, but the friend has the privilege of the Divine Presence.
