The best ACTIONS:

Allaah says,

‘[He] Who created death and life that he may test which of you is best in action.’ [Al-Mulk (67): 2]

Fudayl bin Ayaadh commented on this by saying,

Who is sincere in [his action] and correct in it. The action, if it is sincere but not correct then it is not accepted. If it is correct but not sincere then it is not accepted. It is only accepted when it is both sincere and correct. It is sincere when it is for the sake of Allaah and correct when it is done according to the Sunnah. [Ibn Rajab, ‘Jaami` al-Uloom wal Hikam’ [1/29]]

The proof of what Fudayl said lies in the verse,

“So whosoever hopes for the meeting with His Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of His Lord.” [Al-Kahf (18): 110]
