Ten Ways to Avoid the Hellfire, by Shaykh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah

Of the ten, here is a highly beneficial excerpt of one of the ways (Good Deeds) to avoid the hellfire that Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) listed:
Thus forgiveness and expiation occurs in relation to that which is accepted from the good deeds, and most people are deficient in their good deeds - even in their salaah. For the best among them are those who - at most - obtain half of the reward that is written for them, in addition to committing many sins.

This is why five salaah expiates some sins, Jumu'ah expiates others, then fasting expiates some, and likewise other good desds, for every good deed does not expiate every bad deed. Rather, sometimes it expiates minor sins, and other times it expiates major sins - all based on the degree of a person's sincerity and truthfulness in relation to the gravity of the sin.

Al-Bukharee and Muslim narrated:
A prostitute from the Children of Israeel saw a dog on a very hot day wandering around a well, sticking his tongue out because of thirst. So she took off her shoe and fed the dog some water with it; thus she was forgiven.*
So this woman, who fed the dog because of the sincere eemaan that was in her heart, was forgiven, for not everyone who feeds a dog will be forgiven.
And verily deeds are multiplied in accordance with the level of eemaan and ikhlaas that is in his heart.

* al-Bukharee (1/128) and Muslim (3/1521)

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
