Ibn Abbas on Deeds: Three deeds not accepted without three others

Al-Saffarini reported: Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Three verses were revealed in connection with three others. One will not be accepted without its counterpart. First, the verse, ‘Establish prayer and give charity,’ (2:43). Whoever prays and does not give charity, his prayer is not accepted. Second, the saying of the Almighty, ‘Be grateful to me and your parents,’ (31:14). Whoever is grateful to Allah and is not grateful to his parents, it will not be accepted from him. Third, the saying of the Almighty, “Obey Allah and obey the messenger,’ (3:32). Whoever obeys Allah and does not obey the messenger, it will not be accepted from him.”

عن السفاريني وَقَالَ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا ثَلَاثُ آيَاتٍ نَزَلَتْ مَقْرُونَةً بِثَلَاثِ آيَاتٍ لَا يُقْبَلُ وَاحِدَةٌ مِنْهَا بِغَيْرِ قَرِينَتِهَا أَوَّلُهَا أَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ فَمَنْ صَلَّى وَلَمْ يُؤَدِّ الزَّكَاةَ لَا تُقْبَلُ مِنْهُ الصَّلَاةُ وَالثَّانِي قَوْله تَعَالَى اُشْكُرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيْك فَمَنْ شَكَرَ اللَّهَ وَلَمْ يَشْكُرْ وَالِدَيْهِ لَمْ يُقْبَلْ مِنْهُ وَالثَّالِثُ قَوْله تَعَالَى أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ فَمَنْ أَطَاعَ اللَّهَ وَلَمْ يُطِعْ الرَّسُولَ لَمْ يُقْبَلْ مِنْهُ
