Convert and revert past deeds
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved Sister in Islam, amongst the gravest sins in Islam is to turn back to polytheism after Allah Subhanah has guided one to the Truth of Islam. All Praise is due to none save Allah Subhanah Alone Who has bestowed His Mercy upon you and given you the opportunity to revert back to the Truth of Al-Islam.
Your Question: what happen to my work i did before when i was a muslim?will Allah (SAW) reward me of all my previous work?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verse 61:
61 In whatever business thou mayest be, and whatever portion thou mayest be reciting from the Qur'an, and whatever deed ye (mankind) may be doing; We are Witnesses thereof when ye are deeply engrossed therein. Nor is hidden from thy Lord (so much as) the weight of an atom on the earth or in heavens. And not the least and not the greatest of these things but are recorded in a Clear Record.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiya verse 47:
47 We shall set up Scales of Justice for the Day of Judgment so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be (no more than) the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it (to account): and enough are We to take account.
Dear and Beloved Sister, rest assured that every deed a person does, even if it be no more significant than the weight of a mere atom, it is recorded and preserved in a Clear Record! Rest assured that no good a person does in the test period of his life with the intention to earn the Pleasure and Good Will of their Lord Creator will go unrewarded in His Majestic Presence on that Inevitable Day of Judgment.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqaan verses 63-71:
The (true) servants of the Merciful are those who walk humbly on the earth. When the ignorant people behave insolently towards them, they say, Peace to you; (And those) who pass their nights in prostrating themselves and standing before their Lord and pray, O our Lord, save us from the torment of Hell, for its torment is killing! It is an evil abode, and an evil resting place. (And those) who, when they spend are neither extravagant, nor miserly, but keep the golden mean between the two extremes. (And those) who do not invoke any god but Allah Alone, nor kill a soul unjustly, which Allah has forbidden, nor commit adultery He who does this shall be punished for his sin, and his torment shall be doubled on the Day of Resurrection, and he shall abide in a state of ignominy; EXCEPT THE ONE WHO MAY HAVE REPENTED (AFTER THOSE SINS), AND HAVE BELIEVED AND DONE RIGHTEOUS DEEDS. For then, Allah will change his evil deeds into good deeds, and He is very Forgiving and Merciful. In fact, one who repents and does righteous deeds, returns to Allah as one rightly should!
Dear and Beloved Sister, leave alone the thought of not being rewarded for the good deeds one might have done in ones past, our Lord Most Gracious, Most Bounteous is so Magnanimous and so Merciful to those who turn back to Him in sincere repentance, that not only does He forgive them all their evil deeds they might have done in their past, He has promised that as a bonus for their repentance, He will change their evil deeds into good deeds!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
