Sadqah Hidden or unhidden both forms are based on intention

 Whether it is a Sadaqah or other forms of worship, reward is based on the intention. If intention is correct then deeds performed openly will be rewarded and if intention is defective then even hidden action will cause destruction. Yes! Disclosure of Fard acts of worship along with correct intention is appropriate in order to avoid people getting into evil suspicion and hiding Nawafil (supererogatory prayers) is better so that we can get protection from the possibility of showing-off. Another condition is that when a spiritual leader of people exposes his deeds in order to encourage his followers towards performing good deeds, this type of disclosure is permissible and Afdal (most excellent). This means that for Islamic jurist, spiritual guide, Muhaddis (one who explains the Hadees), preacher, teacher or anyone who is followed, it is better for them to disclose their deeds [with good intentions].

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Umar  narrated: The Beloved and Blessed Prophet has stated, ‘The hidden worship is greater than the open worship and [for] a leader’s [i.e. one who is followed] open (worship) is greater than the hidden (worship).’ 

The renowned commentator of Quran and Hadees, Hakeem-ul- Ummat, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan 
has mentioned in Mirat-ul-Manajih: Exposing the acts of worship as a form of education is not considered showing-off but it is a propagation of knowledge and education, this is a rewardable act. Spiritual scholars say, ‘Showing-off or ostentation’ of the Siddiqeen (the truthful) is better than the sincerity of the disciples and followers.

This is what this means.’ ! The respected, renowned and learned spiritual personality of the current fifteenth century, Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat, founder of Dawat-e-Islami, ‘Allamah

Maulana Abu Bilal Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadiri Razavi Ziyaee  is the most favourite personality of millions of Muslims. A very large number of Muslims love him deeply more than anything else and try to copy his every actions. Therefore, sometimes he narrates some of the parables and incidents of his own life or sometimes some parts of his life history are related in the Sunnah-inspiring speeches so that people who love him dearly become aware of his Allah-fearing life, his great love for the Greatest Prophet ,his abstinence and piety and aspire to follow him and embrace all these distinctive characteristics and qualities.
