in response to reader comment: God or Allah?

According to Mohammed (pbuh) no one can go to heaven by work. One can go to work if he was given the ability to have faith (iman) in the limitless oneness of ALLAH. If one is graced the faith that ALLAH is his reality not a god out there, he then can find the divine potency within and go to heaven. If he was not given the faith in ALLAH, he fails to find the divine potency within and wastes his life in vain by expecting favor from a GOD out there, who never exists.
