عن أبي هريرة -رضي الله عنه- مرفوعاً: «إنَّ الله لا ينْظُرُ إِلى أجْسَامِكُمْ، ولا إِلى صُوَرِكمْ، وَلَكن ينْظُرُ إلى قُلُوبِكمْ وأعمالكم».
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]
المزيــد ...

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: ''Allah does not look at your bodies or at your forms, rather He looks at your hearts and deeds."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Muslim]

Explanation

Allah does not reward you based on your bodies and forms, nor do you get closer to Him by such means. However, you get rewarded based on your sincerity, truthfulness, and righteous deeds.

1: A Muslim should pay due attention to his heart and its traits, set its objectives aright, and purify it from all reproachable qualities.
2: The reward for deeds depends on the sincerity and good intention determined within the heart.
3: Caring about the reform of the heart and its attributes should take precedence over actions of the body, for it is the action of the heart that makes deeds valid. The deeds of a disbeliever are invalid.
4: A person will be held accountable for his deeds and intentions. This prompts him to rectify the action of his heart in a way that pleases Allah and His Messenger.
