Do Not Become Proud !

??? ???? ?????? ??????

Hasan Al-Basree rahimahullaah advised some of his students admonishing them about avoiding the state of being proud. He said:

1. Do not deceive yourself into being too proud because you are in a good or righteous environment, for there is no place that is better than Paradise, and our father, Aadam (`alayhis-salaam), experienced there what is known to all.

2. Do not become proud merely because you worship often, for consider what happened to Iblees  after he spent a great deal of time worshiping.

 

3. Do not think yourself great because you have met with righteous people, for there is no man more righteous than the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), yet the disbelievers and hypocrites did not benefit by simply knowing him.
