Explanation of Sooratul-Maa'oon, by Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen

Excerpts: Found within this explanation is the discussion of riyaa', showing off in ibaadah, and Allaah's threat to those that delay their prayers.

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said:
quote:
These individuals perform actions to be seen by the people. The origin of the worship is for Allaah, however they intend with that the praise of the people. They draw close to the people by that which draws them close to Allaah. These people are indeed Muraa'oon, those who do actions to be seen. As for a person who prays for the people, meaning that he prays to a king for example or other than him and he submits himself before him (like you would to Allaah) by bowing or prostrating, then this is a Mushrik Kaafir. Allaah has made Paradise forbidden for him and his abode is the Hell-fire (if he dies upon that).


quote:
He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to gain their praise, Allaah will let the people know his real intention. And whoever does good things in public to show off and to earn the praise of the people, Allaah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him).* The meaning of this is whoever loves to be heard, Allaah will expose him and clarify to the people that this man isn't sincere; rather he wants the people to hear about him so that they will praise him (for what he does)! And whoever wants to be seen, Allaah will humiliate him/her.

So the person who enjoys showing off, Allaah will soon expose him (for sure). And certainly Allaah will clarify his condition sooner or later.
    

*[al-Bukharee (6499) and Muslim (2986)]


Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.

One more benefit from a tafsir full of benefits:

Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-'Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said:
quote:
And the intent of the Noble Qur`aan isn't that a person recites it (only); that he worships Allaah merely by reciting it. The intent is to adorn yourself with its (morals and conduct). This is why 'Aa`ishah, radiallaahu 'anha, said:
quote:
"Verily, the character of the Messenger, salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, was the Qur`aan.*
Meaning his manners and etiquettes that he would adorn himself with were from the Qur`aan.
*Muslim (746).




Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
