Hadith on Jesus: It is better to do good deeds in secret as a means of achieving sincerity


Hilal ibn Yasaf reported: Jesus son of Mary, peace be upon him, said, “When one of you is fasting, let him anoint his head and beard and wipe his lips so that people will not know that he is fasting; and if he gives with the right hand, let him conceal this from his left hand; and if he prays, let him pull down the curtain, for Allah distributes praise just as he distributes provision.”

[Ibn Al-Mubarak, Az-Zuhd, Number 149, Hasan]

عَنْ هِلالِ بْنِ يَسَافٍ قَالَ قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ إِذَا كَانَ صَوْمُ يَوْمِ أَحَدِكُمْ فَلْيُدْهِنْ رَأْسَهُ وَلِحْيَتَهُ وَيَمْسَحْ شَفَتَيْهِ لِئَلا يَرَى النَّاسُ أَنَّهُ صَائِمٌ فَإِذَا أَعْطَى بِيَمِينِهِ فَلْيُخْفِ مِنْ شِمَالِهِ وَإِذَا صَلَّى فَلْيُرْخِ سِتْرَ بَابِهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى يُقَسِّمُ الثَّنَاءَ كَمَا يُقَسِّمُ الرِّزْقَ
