In this world of truth where unchanging laws work rigidly, the law of wages is that everyone shall be paid according to the amount of effort he puts in. This law is one of the major themes of the Quran and is mentioned all through it. However, there is a law of repentance as well. If one repents i.e. leaves the evil path and turns towards God and follows His guidance, then would-be consequences of his past evil deeds may be neutralized by future good deeds. His past evil deeds may be wiped out as if they were never committed. There is no way to escape the consequences of evil deeds but through repentance i.e. returning to the right path.
Evil deeds are then eliminated en-mass, while good deeds survive. Man-made concepts of Gods fatherliness inspite of sins are not held by Quran.
Repentance by tongue, without change of heart, and lip-service to Gods chosen men cannot save anybody.
Wages related to Effort
Every soul earns only to its own account, and no laden soul bears the load of another. (6:165)
Has he not been told of what is in the scrolls of Moses, and of Abraham who fulfilled, that no laden soul bears the load of another, that nothing is for man except what he strived for, that his effort shall be soon seen and he shall be recompensed for it with the fullest recompense, and that to thy Lord is the Final End. (53:36-42)
Whoso brings a good deed shall have ten the like of it, and whoso brings an evil deed shall be recompensed only the like to it, and they shall not be wronged. (6:161)
It is not your wealth nor your children that bring you in nearness to Us, but those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them shall be the double recompense, for what they did, and they shall be secure in lofty chambers. (34:37)
They say, none shall enter Paradise except that he be a Jew or a Christian. Such are their fancies. Say, produce your proof if you are truthful. No, whosoever submits his will to God and he is a good-doer shall have his wage with his Lord, and no fear shall be on them, nor shall they grieve. (2:111-112)
It is not your fancies, nor the fancies of the People of the Book, whosoever does evil shall be recompensed for it, and he will not find for him any friend or helper, apart from God; and whosoever does righteous deeds, be it male or female, and he is a believer, they shall enter Paradise and shall not be wronged a date-spot. (4:123-124)
Those who believe and do righteous deeds, and We do not waste the wage of those who do good work, theirs shall be Gardens of Eden, underneath which rivers flow; there they shall be adorned with bracelets of gold and shall be robed in green garments of silk and brocade and will recline therein upon couches; how excellent a reward, and how beautiful a resting place. (18:30-31)
