The Details of the Question

Can thawabs (rewards) be eliminated like sins?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

There are some cases in which rewards are eliminated. For instance,

"Backbiting and being jealous of others eliminate good deeds. Beware being jealous of others. Know it very well that jealousy eliminates good deeds just as fire eliminates wood." (Hadith, Mishkat)
