Fear of showing off when doing righteous deeds

Q 7: Satan continually whispers that my deeds are not for Allah's Sake although I do not perform Salah (Prayers) or recite the Qur'an in front of anyone so as not to be accused of showing off. Also, whenever I try to carry out the recommendation of the Messenger (peace be upon him) when he said: Give presents to each other so that you may feel emotionally attached to each other. And give someone a present, Satan whispers that this is Riya' (showing-off) so that the people would praise my generosity. What can I do to get rid of these whispers?

A: You have to continue doing righteous actions and be sincere to Allah with regard to your intentions. Do not pay any attention to the whispers of Satan which aim to divert you from doing good. Increase uttering Ta`awwudh (seeking refuge with Allah) from the cursed Satan.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
