From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 50, Witnesses
Hadith No: 822
Narrated/Authority of Umar bin Al-Khattab
People were (sometimes) judged by the revealing of a Divine Inspiration during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle (SAW) but now there is no longer any more (new revelation). Now we judge you by the deeds you practice publicly, so we will trust and favour the one who does good deeds in front of us, and we will not call him to account about what he is really doing in secret, for Allah will judge him for that; but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good.
