The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Grey hair is the light of a Muslim (on the Day of Resurrection). No Muslim turns grey in Islam but for every grey hair he will receive one reward and his status will be raised by one degree .”

Allah alone is the eternal supreme power ( ) who has created the heavens, the earth and all that is between them for a transitory period. All these things have to face their doom. Allah ( ) has revealed to us about the aforesaid in the Holy Qur’an.
“We did not create the heavens and earth and what is between them except in truth and [for] a specified term.” (Al-‘Ahqaf, 46:3)
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally to win their praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him).” [Bukhari]
HADITH: “NARRATED ‘UTBAN BIN MALIK AL-ANSARI: WHO WAS ONE OF THE MEN OF THE TRIBE OF BANI SALIM: ALLAH’S APOSTLE CAME TO ME AND SAID, “IF ANYBODY COMES ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION WHO HAS SAID: LA ILAHA ILLAL-LAH, SINCERELY, WITH THE INTENTION TO WIN ALLAH’S PLEASURE, ALLAH WILL MAKE THE HELL-FIRE FORBIDDEN FOR HIM.”
