At school, I'm a founder of a club relating to a subject I'm extremely passionate about. My best friend is a co-founder of the club. I worked extremely hard to get this club to start up. My friend didnt really do much. He did like 10% of the job where I did 90%.

The thing is, my friend being the head of 3 other clubs gets most of the credit and most of the recognition whereas people barely approach me with anything related to it. I want more credit because I created the whole thing.

Is it haram in Islam to want to be recognized for your work? I am afraid of falling into arrogance, so is it considered arrogance?

On a related note, is there any place where Allah or his messenger say that people will be given credit for their work in this world?
