Nobody is perfect. We all have flaws, but some flaws stop us from achieving our best. When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see? A series on avoiding judgmental thoughts, looking into the mirror and taking oneself into account. Join Sheikh Muiz Bukhary as we look into the Mirror. After giving a brief summary of the famous hadith of ‘Al-Deen an-Naseehah’ (the religion is sincere advice), this episode looks at how we can combat a disease of the heart known as Riya’. What is Riya’ ? Riya’ means to falsely make oneself appear to be virtuous, good natured or a true believer before people for the sake of earning their respect and admiration, or for the purpose of gaining a good reputation among them. It differs from hypocrisy (nifaq) in that a hypocrite feigns integrity, uprightness, virtue, honesty and piety without sincere intention of acquiring these traits for the sake of God, while a person with riya acquires these good traits for the sake of pleasing God, however, he later performs good actions for the sake of gaining respect and good reputation among people.
