Riyaa, Shirk & Ikhlaas

وعن السيد الجليل فضيل بن عياض رحمه الله تعالى قال: ترك العمل لأجل الناس رياء! والعمل لأجل الناس شرك! والإخلاص أن يعافيك الله منهما

Fudail bin ‘Iyad said, “Abandoning deeds because of people is riyaa‘ (showing off)! And performing deeds because of people is shirk (polytheism)! And ikhlaas (sincerity) is that Allah protects you from both of that.

(‘Bustan al-‘Arifin‘ by Imam al-Nawawi)
