How to achieve Salvation

Every believer aims at living a life that would help him attain the best of both worlds and finally a comfortable blessed abode in the paradise. For the worldly life, every believer aim at deliverance from the power and effects of sin and preservation from destruction or failure. This can only be achieved if one is conditioned himself and is chosen a life that lived as to please his Creator and no one else.
Wikipedia defines Salvation as the state of being saved or protected from harm or a dire situation. In religion and theology, salvation generally refers to the deliverance of the soul from sin and its consequences.
Many are of the opinion that merely doing good and avoiding sins would salvage him from the scrutiny on the Day of Judgement when actions, both and good, will be weighed and one rewarded accordingly. 

But in Islam, the ultimate salvation lies in living a life in this worldly world if it is lived in total submission to Allah and every action taken to please Allah while fearing of Allah's wrath if indulging in sins and satanic ways. For Muslims, the criterion for salvation lies in pleasing Allah alone and pleasing and fearing none else. This does not mean that one should abandon one's family and seclude him from the world and remaining busy in worship of Allah. 

The real test of a believer lies in living a worldly life, have family and children and seek a good living. Yet one should be mindful of not displeasing Allah and if for some reason he feels that his worldly obligations are at tangent to pleasing Allah, he must apply corrections so as not to invite anger of Allah.

Please watch the video below on the issue by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, an Islamic scholar and peace activist known for having written a commentary on the Quran and having translated it into contemporary English and talking on issues related to Islam:
May Allah help us understand Qur'ān and help us to act upon the commandments of Allah contained therein and keep our final aim at pleasing Allah and none else to be blessed with total salvation when the world ends and a new life for us begins. Aameen.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully.
