Rejoicing In Falsehood and Desiring Praise For What They Have Not Done!

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said:

لَا تَحۡسَبَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَفۡرَحُونَ بِمَآ أَتَواْ وَّيُحِبُّونَ أَن يُحۡمَدُواْ بِمَا لَمۡ يَفۡعَلُواْ فَلَا تَحۡسَبَنَّہُم بِمَفَازَةٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡعَذَابِ‌ۖ

وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ۬

Think not that those who rejoice in what they have done (or brought about), and love to be praised for what they have not done,- think not you that they are rescued from the torment, and for them is a painful torment.” [3:188]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said:

They rejoice in what they have brought about of bidah and misguidance, and love to be praised for  following the Sunnah and sincerity. [i.e. they want to be praised for what they do not deserve with regards to following the sunnah and having sincerity] [1]

Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said:

They want to be praised for that which they have not done and [praised for some] truthful [statement] they have not uttered; so they combine evil doing and its statement, and rejoice in that. And they love to be praised for some good they have not done. [2]
