⚠️♨️Arrogance♨️⚠️ 💠 Allaah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) says (interpretation of the meaning): 💠 “And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being); then We told the angels, ‘Prostrate yourselves to Adam’, and they prostrated themselves, except Iblees (Satan), he refused to be of those who prostrated themselves. 💠 (Allaah subhanahu wa ta'ala) said: ‘What prevented you (O Iblees) that you did not prostrate yourself, when I commanded you?’ Iblees said: ‘I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay’” [al-A’raaf C.7: V.11-12] 🚫 Arrogance is one of the characteristics of Shaytaan Iblees, so whoever wants to be arrogant should realize that he is acquiring a characteristic of the devils, and that he is not acquiring a characteristic of the noble angels who obeyed their Lord and fell down prostrate. ⚠️ Moreover, arrogance may be the cause of a person being deprived of Paradise and may mean that the Lord of Glory will not even look at him, the following haadeeth: 💢 It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (Rady'Allahu anhu) that the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihe wa Sallam) said: 💠 “No one who has an atom’s-weight of arrogance in his heart will enter Paradise.” 💠 A man said, “O Messenger of Allaah, what if a man likes his clothes and his shoes to look good?” He said, “Allaah is Beautiful and loves beauty. Arrogance means rejecting the truth and looking down on people.” [Narrated by Muslim, 91]
When someone follow his ego and pride he actually follows the way of shaytaan, his Islamic knowledge and wisdom gets disappeared, May Allah protect us all from these horrible defects. Ameen.
