Details of the Question
Is it true that a person who utters kalima at-tawhid (La ilaha illallah) 70.000 times goes to Paradise directly even if he has no other deeds?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is narrated that a person who says "La ilaha illah" will be given the glad tiding of Paradise. Therefore, people of tariqah and tasawwuf (sufism) try to say it throughout their lives.

However, no deed is a reason for Paradise. Paradise is of Allah's grace; it is based on His consent. It is important whether deeds are done sincerely or not. Worshipping is not done in order to go to Paradise.

The phrase "even if he has no other deeds" can be valid only for supererogatory (nafilah) deeds; fard and wajib deeds are not included in it.
