Al-lhsann Wa Al-Munkar - Beneficient deed and reprehensible deed

It is said: This (literary style) is very frequent, as in His (AWJ) saying,

Verily, As-Salaat prevents from committing Al Fahshaa (blatant sin) and Al-Munkar (reprehensible deeds). [Al-'Ankaboot:45]

Here Al-Fahshaa (blatant sin) is a part of Al-Munkar (the reprehensible deeds). This occured also in His (AWJ) saying,

Verily! Allah enjoins justice and beneficience, and giving (help) to kith and kin and He forbids Al Fahshaa (blatant sin) and Al-Munkar (reprehensible deeds), and (all kinds of) oppression. [An-Nahl:90]

Here "giving help to kith and kin" is a part of justice and beneficience, while "blatant sin" and "oppression" are of the reprehensible deeds.

Also, in His (AWJ) saying,

And as to those who hold fast by the Scripture and establish As-Salaat perfectly. [Al-A'raaf: 170]

Whereas establishing As-Salaat is of the greatest forms of holding fast to the Scripture.

Also, in what He (AWJ) said about His Prophets,

Verily, they used to rush to do good deeds, and they used to call on Us with hope and fear and they used to humble themselves before Us. [Al-Anbiyaa:90]

Their "call with hope and fear" is of doing the good deeds. Examples similar to these are numerous in the Quraan.
