On the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) who reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Allah, the Almighty, has said:
I am free of polytheism and polytheists. Whosoever does an action setting up a partner with Me, I desert him as well as his polytheism.
(Reported by Muslim)
1. Allah does not accept man's deed unless it is faithfully intended to Him.
2. Ostentation is called unfaithfulness because it nullifies the reward for the deeds done
