Bad, Be Like, and Beautiful: HIDE YOUR GOOD DEEDS MORE THAN YOU HIDE YOUR BAD DEEDS GARDENOFTHEPIOUS It is a pity that many people today do favours of good deeds only to gain fame, fortune and praise from fellow human beings, (known in Arabic as Riya). Performing righteous deeds to show off or to be seen by fellow human beings in order to be praised by them destroys all the benefits that lie in such deeds. - The primary cause of Riya is a weak level of eeman (faith). When people’s faith is weak, they prefer the admiration and acceptance of people instead of the pleasure of Allah. They desire to be like others who they envy, and to be envied by others similarly. This causes them to ignore the blessings and rewards of the hereafter, and desire for fame and prestige in this world; thus fall into riya. Allah will humiliate all such people on the Day of Resurrection. - Jundub narrated that The Prophet (ο·Ί) said, β€œHe who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him). (Bukhari, 6499) - In the Quran, Allah says (translation of meaning): β€œWould one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grapevines underneath which rivers flow in which he has from every fruit? But he is afflicted with old age and has weak offspring, and it is hit by a whirlwind containing fire and is burned. Thus does Allah make clear to you [His] verses that you might give thought.” (Quran, 2:266) - Here Allah has compared the good deeds of those who practice riya to a beautiful, lush garden that is burnt by a fire, while the owner stands by, incapable of stopping it. This is what happens to good deeds that are wasted. How can Allah, the Most Wise, accept deeds if they are not performed for His sake? How can Allah, the Most Just, bestow the same amount of blessings on the person who performs action solely for His sake and the one who intends only to show off and acquire the praise of fellow human beings? - May Allah save us all from the dangerous, poisonous habit of doing righteous deeds with the intention of seeking praise and fame. AMEEN.πŸ’–
