A wise man was asked, "Who is the sincere one?" He replied, "It is he who hides his good deeds as he does with his bad deeds." Someone asked, "What is the good of sincerity?" He said, "When you dislike to be praised by people."

Al-Fudail Ibn Eiad, may Allah (SWT) be pleased with him said, "To refrain from an action for the sake of people is ostentation. To do something for their sake is shirk (polytheism). But sincerity is to be aware of them.

O Allah (SWT)! Let us be away from them and forgive us.

2) Killing A Human Being
Allah (SWT), the Almighty, says,
{If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (for ever); and the wrath and curse of Allah (SWT) are upon him, and a dreadful chastisement is prepared for him.}

{Those who invoke not, with Allah (SWT), any other god, nor slay such life as Allah (SWT) has made sacred, except for just cause, nor commit fornication,' and any that does this (not only) meets punishment.}

{On that account: We ordained for the children of Israel that if anyone slew a person -unless it be for murder 'or for spreading mischief in the land -it would be as if he slew the whole people.}
(AI- Ma'ida:32)

{When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned -for what crime she killed.}
(Al- Takwir: 8-9)

The Prophet (SM) said,
"Avoid the seven heinous sins."

And he mentioned taking one's life which Allah (SWT)  has made sacred except in the course of justice.
It was related that someone asked the Prophet (SM),

"What is the most heinous sin in the sight of Allah (SWT)?" The Prophet (SM) replied, "To hold that Allah (SWT) has an equal whereas He has created you." .The man asked, "What else?" The Prophet (Sm) said, "To kill your child lest he feeds with you." The man asked, "What else?" He said, "To commit adultery with your neighbor's wife."1
