HE DID A LITTLE WORK BUT EARNED A GREAT REWARD

He is a companion who neither made a single Sujūd nor Sadaqah but became a dweller of Jannah, he came to the Prophet on the day of Uhud wanting to fight alongside the Messenger of Allāh before he accepted Islām, he asked the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi was Salaam):

Should I fight first then accept Islām?
The Messenger of Allāh replied: “Embrace Islām first and then fight” so he embraced Islām, fought and martyred, Allāhu Akbar!

The Messenger of Allāh (sallallahu alayhi was Salaam) said about him:
” He worked a little(after embracing Islām) but earned a great reward”

He is no other Ṣahābiy than
‘AMR BN THĀBIT AL UṢAYRIM(may Allāh be pleased with him)

Al-Barah Bn ‘Āzib(radiyallahu ‘Anhu) narrated

A man whose face was covered with an iron mask (i.e. clad in armor) came to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first? “The Prophet said, “Embrace Islam first and then fight.” So he embraced Islam, and was martyred. Allah’s Apostle said, A Little work, but a great reward. “(He did very little (after embracing Islam), but he will be rewarded in abundance).

Eating of cucumber and fresh date to gain weight

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ نُمَيْرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يُونُسُ بْنُ بُكَيْرٍ حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ كَانَتْ أُمِّي تُعَالِجُنِي لِلسُّمْنَةِ تُرِيدُ أَنْ تُدْخِلَنِي عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ فَمَا اسْتَقَامَ لَهَا ذَلِكَ حَتَّى أَكَلْتُ الْقِثَّاءَ بِالرُّطَبِ فَسَمِنْتُ كَأَحْسَنِ سُمْنَةٍ ‏.

It was narrated that “Aishah said:

“My mother was trying to fatten me up when she wanted to send me to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) (when she got married), but nothing worked until I ate cucumbers with dates; then I grew plump like the best kind of plump.”
