Intention (Niyyah) and Hidden Shirk


Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem:
Don't Wear Islamic dress for traditional Fashion reasons, wear it for fulfilling religious obligation and for the sake of Allah.
Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala Looking at your Intention (niyyah).
So make Niyyah for Allah, When you make Niyyah (intention) for any other persons or reasons, then you certainly set up an idol beside Allah!

I have seen murids wearing Sufi Clock when visiting Shaykh or when coming to Zikr assemblies. 
It is good to respect Shaykh and keep the discipline of Sufi Zikr gatherings by wearing proper dress and conduct.
But the Niyyah must be for the sake of Allah, as long as Niyyah (Intention) for something else, then there is no real benefit for anything We do!

Don't Wear Hijab to please people or to please even your ego!
Ego bring false pride!. At that time ego says: "I have become a good Muslim, I am pious now,I became a practicing Muslimah!. 
Other women are haramis!, people will respect me, I would get pious husband!

This is the big sickness!, to think you became pious just by wearing some cloths and outfits!, Look at your heart, is it changed?
The Noor of Allah has entered in your heart?. If yes then you will have a clear wisdom and understanding of the religion.

Instead of thinking you are pious, you will become busy in fixing your heart! asking Allah's forgiveness today more than yesterday!, more tomorrow than today!
That is the real piety!. So don't get fooled by ego!

You can look outwardly like Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) and at the same time, if you do not have a heart like that of Prophet Muhammad (a.s.w) , that outward appearance do not give you any benefit!
Change heart, clean it by means of Zikr and Love of Allah and Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam), be withou pious Saints of Allah (Awliya Allah), Often visit Zikr Majlis.

To wear big beard and big turban and Jubba require big heart. Otherwise you will give bad name for Islam and Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w). 
So wear Islamic dress for the heart first, then wear Islamic dress of the body!. 
If your heart does not represent Allah and Rasool (s.a.w) but your body represent, at that time, you going to the streets and coming home with a bad impression on Islam, a bad impression on Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w).
This is what happening around the world today!, Islam is attacked from everywhere, Muslims are abused!, Islamo phobia is spreading!

Some seekers of the Truth , when they reached in the station of Sainthood (Wilayah) they shaved their beard and secluded from people.
Because they understood the the difference between Islam of the heart and Islam of the outward. 
So they decided to break that outward idol ,that ego set up against the Temple of God (Heart)
It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu'minin, Abu Hafs 'Umar bin al-Khattab, radiyallahu 'anhu, who said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, say: "Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]
