Question: I have heard that it is enough for a muslim to do the fard works for going to the heaven. Is this true?
Answer: It depends on the definition of fard. If one defines fard as anything that is obligatory to do, including to avoid sin, then yes, that would be enough. However, some scholars, differ between fard and waajib, where waajib is also what one must do, but its evidence of being a must in the religion is not as obvious as that of fard. In other words, one must do waajib as well according to this way of defining the terms waajib and fard.
