“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

From Riyaa To Ibaadat

This is a wisdom (hikma) my father always tells. He says, our elders give the advice not to stop someone from his acts of goodness, even if you know he is doing it for showing (riyaa). Here is the complete wisdom behind it explained by Hadhrat Hajji Imdaadullah Muhaajir-e-Makki (r.a.):

“Even if you are doing an act (of goodness) for the sake of riyaa (show), don’t abandon it. While initially it will be riyaa, later (by constancy) it will be transformed into aadat (habit). Ultimately, the aadat will become ibaadat.”

[The Mashaikh Of Chisht by Shaikhul Hadith Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhalwi (r.a.)]
