Chapter 289

Things not to be Considered as Showing off



Hadith 1621

Abu Dharr radiyallahu anhu said: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa was asked: "Tell us about a person who does some good deed and people praise him, will this be considered as showing off?'' He Sallalahu aleihi wa replied,

"This is the glad tidings which a believer receives (in this life).''
[Muslim].


Commentary: We learn from this Hadith that if a person does a virtuous act to please Allah (i.e., not with the intention to show off) and people praise him for it, then there is nothing wrong with it. In fact, such praise is the glad tidings which he receives in this world. Expression of such good opinion about him by the public is akin to a declaration that Allah is pleased with him. Sincere admiration and praise of someone by the public is not a disqualification. It is, in fact, an evidence of his virtuous conduct and its recognition by Allah.
