The immediate reward of good & penalty of sin

Hadhrat Mawlana Mufti Mohammad Shafii’ (may Allah have mercy on him) writes,

“The immediate reward for a good deed is the subsequent good action that its doer is blessed with. Similarly, one of the penalties of a bad action is the  facilitation of the next sin.”
