Hadith: Whoever displays their worship for the sake of people…


salam ‘alaykum,

Can you give an explanation of this hadith:
وفي الحديث ( من سمَّع سمَّع الله به ، ومن يرائي يرائي الله به ) رواه البخاري .


Alaykum Salam,

This hadith was given several explanations. Among them:

– Whoever makes a display of their worship and good deeds for the sake of people will be exposed by Allah on the Day of Judgment as a bad example.
– Whoever denounces and exposes others or displays their own goodness to be honored by people will be exposed and dishonored on the Day of Judgment.
– Whoever hides their worship out of shame from people or on the contrary displays them for their approval, will be exposed and denounced on the Day of Judgment.

Another version adds: ومن يشاقق يشقق الله عليه
which means: “and whoever makes things difficult for others, Allah will make things difficult for him.”

Hajj Gibril Haddad
