Showing Off and Boasting About Sins One Committed

Hadith: Arabic Text followed by English Translation. 

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال ، سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول

كل أمتي معافى إلا المجاهرين وإن من المجاهرة أن يعمل الرجل بالليل عملا ثم يصبح وقد ستره الله عليه فيقول يا فلان عملت البارحة كذا وكذا وقد بات يستره ربه ويصبح يكشف ستر الله عنه

رواه البخاري ٦٠٦٩ و مسلم‏ ٢٩٩٠

Abu Hurairah (May Allah bepleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

All the sins of my followers will be forgiven except for those who commit sin openly. Part of committing sin openly is when a man does something at night and Allaah conceals it, but in the morning he says, ‘O So-and-so, last night I did such and such.’ His Lord had covered his sin all night, but in the morning he removed the cover of Allaah.

Narrated by Bukhari, 6069 and Muslim, 2990
