Ibaadaat done for Show

عن شداد بن أوس رضي الله عنه أنه سمع النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول من صام يرائي فقد أشرك ومن صلى يرائي فقد أشرك ومن تصدق يرائي فقد أشرك  رواه البيهقي من طريق عبد المجيد بن بهرام عن شهر بن حوشب (الترغيب والترهيب 1/80)

Hadhrat Shaddaad bin Aus (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) say: “The one who fasts for show has ascribed partners with Allah Ta’ala (in the ibaadat of fasting). The one who performs salaah for show has ascribed partners with Allah Ta’ala (in the ibaadat of salaah). The one who gives wealth in charity for show has ascribed partners with Allah Ta’ala (in the ibaadat of charity).

Note: Though one will not come out of the fold of Islam through such sins, however due to carrying out this ibaadat without sincerity, the ibaadat will be rejected as it is not done only for the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, but also to earn public praise.

Receiving Seventy Rewards

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
