A Warning to the Son of Adam About the Origins of Evil
Showing of knows as RIYA happens when a person says or does something for a reason other than the pleasure of Allah. If pious people apart from the prophets can be affected by this then the common person is in more of a danger. How will the common person face up to riay?
The Prophet saw said: Actions are like a container. If the containers bottom is good, its top is good. But if the conytainers bottom is polluted, then its top is polluted.'
