Book Name:Riya kari

are given in return for what they do only in the world. In this context, the 15th verse of Surah Hood is quoted wherein Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has said in part 12 of the Holy Quran:

مَنۡ   کَانَ   یُرِ  یۡدُ   الۡحَیٰوۃَ   الدُّنۡیَا  وَ  زِیۡنَتَہَا

نُوَفِّ   اِلَیۡہِمۡ    اَعۡمَا لَہُمۡ   فِیۡہَا  وَ ہُمۡ   فِیۡہَا   لَا   یُبۡخَسُوۡنَ   ﴿۱۵﴾

Translation from Kanz-ul-Iman: Whoever desires the life of the world and its luxuries, We will give them the full compensation for their deeds in it, and will not make any reduction in it. (Part 12, Surah Hood, verse 15)


Commenting on the abovementioned verse, Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا has stated, ‘Those who show off are given the reward of their good deeds in their worldly life, and are not oppressed at all.’ (Tafseer Tabari, vol. 7, pp. 13)


Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ says in another blessed verse of the Glorious Quran:

یٰۤاَ یُّہَا الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا لَا تُبۡطِلُوۡا صَدَقٰتِکُمۡ بِالۡمَنِّ وَ الۡاَذٰی ۙ کَالَّذِیۡ یُنۡفِقُ مَالَہٗ رِئَآءَ النَّاسِ وَ لَا یُؤۡمِنُ  بِاللّٰہِ  وَ الۡیَوۡمِ الۡاٰخِرِؕ   فَمَثَلُہٗ   کَمَثَلِ  صَفۡوَانٍ عَلَیۡہِ  تُرَابٌ  فَاَصَابَہٗ  وَابِلٌ   فَتَرَکَہٗ   صَلۡدً ا   ؕ     لَا  یَقۡدِرُوۡنَ   عَلٰی   شَیۡءٍ    مِّمَّا کَسَبُوۡا ؕ

Translation from Kanz-ul-Iman: O you who believe! Do not invalidate your charity by boasting of favour and causing injury - like one who spends his wealth for people to see, and does not believe in Allah and the Last Day; his example is similar to that of a rock covered with dust and hard rain fell on it, leaving it as a bare rock; they shall get no control over (or benefit from) anything they have earned (Part 3, Al-Baqarah, verse 264)
