Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah
Amma ba'd  

Concerning Allaah's statement (what means): And those who give that (their charity) which they give (and also do other good deeds) with their hearts full of fear (whether their alms and charities, etc., have been accepted or not), because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning). (Al-Mu'minun 23:60)

Imam Ahmad recorded from `A'ishah: I said: "O Messenger of Allah, And those who give that which they give with their hearts full of fear... Are these the ones who steal and commit Zina and drink alcohol while fearing Allah?" The Messenger of Allah replied: No, O daughter of Abu Bakr. O daughter of As-Siddiq, the one who prays, fast and gives in charity, fearing Allah." This was recorded by At-Tirmidhi.

Ibn Abi Hatim recorded something similar in which the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihiwasallam) said:
quote:
No, O daughter of As-Siddiq, they are the ones who pray and fast and give in charity while fearing that it will not be accepted from them. It is these who hasten in the good deeds.



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.

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah

More on the same topic from this highly beneficial link (below):

http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=11&Topic=6255

The Salaf worked diligently in perfecting their actions and making them faultless, then after that, they showed great concern for acceptance of their actions. They did this because they feared that their actions would be rejected. They are those who gave what was incumbent upon them while their hearts were in a state of fear. It is reported that 'Ali bin Abi Taleb said:
quote:
Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself. Did you not hear the statement of Allaah:

Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious)
  

Fudalah said: For me to know that Allaah has accepted from me an action the size of a mustard seed is more beloved to me than this world and everything within it.  This is because of the statement of Allaah:

Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious)  

Malik bin Dinar said: Fear that an action is not accepted is more difficult than performing the action itself.

'Ataa as Sulamee stated: The pious fear that their righteous actions were not done sincerely for Allah.

'Abdul 'Azeez ibn Abee Ruwaad said: I have met people very diligent in performing actions, and upon completion of those actions they are faced with sadness in fear of the action being accepted or not.

Some Salaf used to say:
quote:
The people of the past would supplicate 6 months to Allaah to allow them to reach the month of Ramadan, and then upon completion of the month, they would again supplicate 6 months (begging) for acceptance of their fast.
  

Some of the Salaf would display sadness on the day of 'Eid. It was said to them:  This is a day of happiness and joy! They would respond: You have spoken the truth, but I am a servant, my Lord has ordered me to perform an action but I am not sure if He will accept it from me or not.

Wahb noticed people laughing on the day of 'Eid, upon seeing this he stated: If their fast was accepted, then know that this is not the action of those who are grateful, and if it was not accepted, then this is not the action of those who are afraid.

Hasan (al Basri) stated: Indeed Allaah has made Ramadan a means of gain for His creation. (Within this month) they race to gain His pleasure through obedience to Him. Some individuals will gain (win), while others will remain back and lose. It is amazing to see a person playing and laughing on a day that the good doers will be rewarded, and the wrong doers will be defeated.

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.
