Do you desire to be rewarded in this world?

فعن أنس بن مالك، أنه حدث عن رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم -: ((إن الكافر إذا عمل حسنةً أطعم بها طعمةً من الدنيا، وأما المؤمن فإن الله يدخر له حسناته في الآخرة، ويعقبه رزقًا في الدنيا على طاعته))، 

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: When an infidel accomplishes any good deed, he is rewarded for it in this world; and in the case of a Muslim, Allah stores up his good acts for him in the Hereafter and provides him with provisions in this life due to his obedience.” 

وفي رواية: ((إن الله لا يظلم مؤمنًا حسنةً يعطى بها في الدنيا، ويجزى بها في الآخرة، وأما الكافرُ فيطعم بحسنات ما عمل لله تعالى في الدنيا، حتى إذا أفضى إلى الآخرة لم يكن له حسنةٌ يجزى بها))؛ رواه مسلمٌ.

Another narration is: The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Allah does not wrong a believer a good deed because he is given blessings for it in this world and will be rewarded for it in the Hereafter. But the infidel is given in the world the reward for good deeds, he has performed for the sake of Allah and when he comes to the Hereafter, there is no good deed for which he can be rewarded.”[Reported by Muslim].
