there's a very powerful Hadith that shows us the dangers of showing off your good deeds to other people. And that is the Hadith reported in Bukhari and Muslim in which we learn that the very first people who will be called to task on the day of judgment, and the very first people who will be rewarded or punished on the Day of Judgment will be the half of the Quran. The martyr, the Shaheed and the one who gave up his money all the time for the sake of Allah. These are the first three people whom Allah will call in front of him. And as everybody is looking at them, they will think Allah is honoring them, Allah is rewarding them, Allah will give them the first share of the pie of

00:01:23--> 00:02:05

Jana. So Allah will ask this Halfhill Why did you memorize the Quran? And why did you recite at these gatherings and add these massages? Why did you go and do this? So the Hatfield will stand up with pride and he will say, Oh Allah, I did it to bring honor to your book, I did it for there is of the religion for the glory of the religion. I did it for your sake, oh Allah. And Allah will say, cannabutter you're lying, and the angels will agree and say You are lying. And the books will be brought forth and it will be clear that his intention, Allah will say, your intention was not to please me. You recited the Quran so that people would call you Adi, half a share, and they did. So

00:02:05--> 00:02:47

get your reward from them. And then the second person, the martyr, the one who waged a legitimate expedition, and he gave his life for the cause of Allah subhana wa Tada. He will be asked, Why did you spend your life in the way of Allah? And the man will say, because I wanted to bring help to the religion. I wanted to bring it Allah al Qaeda, as we call are bringing help to Islam, glory to Islam. I want to defend the religion defend the weakness and the wholeness of the poor. I did it for your sake, oh Allah. And Allah will once again say cannabutter you're lying, and the angels will testify you're lying. And Allah will say you only did it so that people could call you Masha Allah

00:02:47--> 00:03:28

Mujahid Masha Allah brave man mashallah You've done so much. And the people did, you got your reward from them, none from me. And the same with the third person that he will say I gave my money to be a generous person for your religion. And Allah will say you only did it so that you could be known in the community so that people would call you generous and that is exactly what they did. And then Allah will punish these three in front of all of the creation and they will be the very first people to enter the fire of hell whether you how to build up an Abu Hurayrah was listening to this hadith and the prophets Islam tapped his knee. And he said, Yeah, about Hurayrah these are the first three

00:03:28--> 00:04:09

people who will taste the fire about the Hatfield and caught it. And in wondering why it says the scholar and the orator May Allah azza wa jal protect all of us and the one who is a Shaheed the martyr, and the third one is the one who is generous. Why? Because their intentions were not correct. They had this mixing of intentions, they wanted to show off their deeds. And imagine brothers and sisters. Imagine the fate of the person he is doing good his whole life and he thinks he's gonna meet Allah with all of this good. And then he is told you didn't do it for my sake. You did it for your own ego. You did it to inflate your own prestige on the people. Why are you wanting

00:04:09--> 00:04:25

me to reward you when you didn't do it purely for my sake? Imagine the fate of that person and therefore brothers and sisters, we need to make sure we are not that person. We are not that person on the Day of Judgment, who is told you wasted your whole life and all of your deeds will be thrown back at your face
