Some people tend to feel that faith and moral conduct dont have a one to one type of relationship. This is not so in Islam as any reform at an individual or social level must start with moral transformation.

He answered she is in the hell fire. All her worship did not make up for the lack of moral behavior. Then they asked him about a woman who prays the minimum and a little bit more, doesnt fast as much, and she doesnt pay as much in charity (all the charity she can give are small pieces of cheese) but she doesnt hurt her neighbors.
