Today's Hadith


Stones in Purse


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “There may be a faster who does not gain from his fasting but hunger and thirst.” [Ibn Majah]

A wise man said, “The one who shows off in good works is like the one who fills his purse with
pebbles and leaves for the market to buy food. If he opens it (to offer it to) the seller he will be stoned with it. He gains nothing but the people's inquiry about what fills his purse, nothing more. Similarly, the one who shows off in good works will have no value attached to his works but the people's saying that he did good and he will not be rewarded in the Hereafter.”

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) says, “And We shall turn to whatever deeds they did (in this life), and (because of their showing-off) We shall make them as floating dust scattered about.” [Al-Quran: Surah AI-Furqan, Ayat 23]
