There is a Hadith that talks about that - A man has many good deeds but Allah told the angel to take him to jannah with his mercy but the man wanted to enter jannah with his good deeds instead of Allah's mercy. So Allah asked him for his eyesight.

Can anyone provide the reference for this Hadith?

It is recorded in Shu'ab al-Eemaan 4300 , Mustadrak al-Hakim 7637 etc. A similar lesson but not this story may also be found in the hadith found in Bukhari and Muslim.




This hadith is obtained from ''Tambihul Ghafilun'' by Sheikh Abul Laith Samarkandi. This book contains many authentic as well as weak and fabricated narrations.

Jazakallah khair.
