Showing Off

Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 8 Hadith 506
Narrated Jundub
The Prophet said, "He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him)."

Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 9 Hadith 266
Narrated Tarif Abi Tamima
I saw Safwan and Jundab and Safwan's companions when Jundab was advising. They said, "Did you hear something from Allah's Apostle?" Jundab said, "I heard him saying, 'Whoever does a good deed in order to show off, Allah will expose his intentions on the Day of Resurrection (before the people), and whoever puts the people into difficulties, Allah will put him into difficulties on the
Day of Resurrection.' " The people said (to Jundab), "Advise us." He said, "The first thing of the human body to purify is the abdomen, so he who can eat nothing but good food (Halal and earned lawfully) should do so, and he who does as much as he can that nothing intervene between him and Paradise by not shedding even a handful of blood, (i.e. murdering) should do so."

Sahih Muslim 490
Narrated AbuHurayrah
The horses are of three types. To one man (these are) burden, and to another man (these are) a covering, and still to another man (these are) a source of reward. The one to whom these are a burden is the person who rears them in order to show off, for vainglory and for opposing the Muslims; so they are a burden to him. The one for whom
these are a covering is the person who rears them for the sake of Allah but does not forget the right of Allah concerning their backs and their necks, and so they are a covering for him. As for those which bring reward (these refer to) the person who rears them for the sake of Allah, to be used for Muslims, so he puts them in meadows and fields. And whatever they eat from those meadows and fields will be recorded on his behalf as good deeds, as will also the amount of their dung and urine.
