Upon the Completion of Good Deeds

The righteous ones from the first three generations of Islam used to work hard at finishing deeds, bringing them to completion, and doing them well. After that, they would be concerned about them having been accepted and afraid about them having been rejected. These are the ones who “give what they give while their hearts are afraid [that it won’t be accepted].” (from Al-Muʾminūn 60, English meaning)

And this is the state of a believer while [he’s doing] acts of obedience and his state upon their completion. Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī said: “Indeed, a believer combines doing good with feeling afraid, and indeed, a hypocrite combines doing evil with feeling secure.”
