Food for thoughts

“Give your enemy a thousand chances to become your friend, but do not give your friend a single chance to become

your enemy.” Ali ibn Abi Talib [ra]


Conceited will be like Ants

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The arrogant will be gathered like small ants in the form of men on the Day of Resurrection, overwhelmed by humiliation from all sides.” [Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh]

Small ants are something to which people pay no attention; they step on them without even realizing it.

Arrogance is a major sin according to the laws of Shariah. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) hates conceited people very much. When he resurrects His slaves, He will gather the arrogant in a humiliating form.

Sometimes we put on an appearance of humility while our hearts are filled with conceit and haughtiness. Rid yourself of these false beliefs about yourself before you are humiliated by all of mankind on the Day of Judgement.
