29 – Ar-Riyaa is Shirk

951 – ‘Indeed the most dreadful of what I fear upon you is the small Shirk (Shirk al-Asghar).’

They asked: ‘And what is the small Shirk?’

He replied: ar-Riyaa (showing off), Allaah Azza wa Jal says to those who commit ar-Riyaa on the Day of Judgement when the people will be judged: ‘Go to those to whom you used to show off to in the duniya (world), and see if you find any reward from them.’
