One particular hadith comes to light, Nabi (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, “When a person praises his good deeds then he decreases on his thanksgiving and destroys his deeds” (Asatul Khaya).
All praise belongs to Allah Ta’ala and one should thank Allah Alone having made it possible to act on the good. One should not praise oneself having done good actions. In fact, one should thank Allah for having been given the ability and opportunity – in the presence of so many millions of people – the taufeeq to do good. However, one should constantly make dua to increase in many more good deeds.
