Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST BENEFICENT, THE MOST MERCIFUL
STEPS TO OVERCOME ARROGANCE AND PRIDE
(1) Understand The True Dangers Of Arrogance.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said ”No one who has an atom’s weight of arrogance in his heart will enter Paradise” (Sahih-Muslim).
(2) Acknowledge Your Limited Nature.
Allah states in the Quran ”Has there (not) come upon man a period of time when he was not even a thing mentioned?” (Quran-76:1)
Allah states in the Quran ”Indeed, you will never tear the earth and you will never reach the mountains in height.?” (Quran-17:37).
(3) Realise The Greatness Of Allah.
The Scholar Ibn Qayyim states ”Humility comes from knowing about Allah, His names, attributes, and His overall Greatness.” (Kitab Al-Ruh).
Allah also states in the Quran ”And to Him (alone) belongs all Majesty within the Heavens and the Earth” (Quran-45:37)
(4) Never Over Praise Yourself.
Allah states in the Quran ”So do not claim yourselves to be pure, He is most knowing of those who fear Him”. (Quran-53:32)
(5) Be The First To Give Salaam.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said ”The one who initiates the Salaam greeting is free from pride” (Bayhaqi)
(6) Understand The Reward For Having Humility.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said ”No one humbles himself for the sake of Allah, except that Allah raises his status”. (Sahih Muslim).
ALLAH KNOWS BEST.
