Allah says in the Qur'an, "Verily Allah forgives not setting up partners in worship with Him. But He forgives whom He pleases, sins other than that (shirk)" The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 4, Verse 116 Allah says in the Qur'an, "Verily whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden paradise for him and the fire will be his abode" The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 5, Verse 72 "He who swore by something other than Allah shall be regarded as Mushrik" Reported by Umar Ibn al-Khattab(ra) and narrated by Ahmad "He who swore by other than Allah has fallen in kufr or shirk" Reported by Umar Ibn al-Khattab(ra) and narrated by Abu Dawood and At-Tirmidhi "To pretend to be muslims by concealing bad faith in their hearts is disguised shirk." This kind of shirk is Riya (to do good deeds or beautify them to be seen by men) Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that "May I tell you of what i fear very much, that might harm you more than Al Masih Ad Dajjal (the false Messiah). The audience said "Yes, Prophet of Allah". He said " The disguised Shirk..When a man gets up to pray and strives to beautify his prayer, because people are looking at him" Reported by Abi Sa'eed Al Khudri and narrated by Imam Ahmed in his Musnad.
