Mentioning Of Pride ..

Allah Subhanahu says :

اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُحِبُّ مَنۡ كَانَ مُخۡتَالًا فَخُوۡرَا

” ….. Allah does not like those who are self – deluding , proud and boastful.”

[Qur’an 4:36]

He further says :     اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخۡتَالٍ فَخُوۡرٍۚ

“… Allah does not like any self – deluded and boastful.”  Qur’an 31:18

In another place the Almighty says :

فَلَبِئۡسَ مَثۡوَى الۡمُتَكَبِّرِيۡنَ…..

“…And indeed , what an evil abode will be for the arrogant.”  [ Qur’an 16:29]

Ibn Mas’ood reported that Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W) said : ” He who has in his heart the weight of a mustard seed of pride will not enter Paradise.” A man remarked , ” O ‘ Allah’s Messenger , a man like his garment to be beautiful and his shoes to be beautiful . ” The Prophet replied , ” Allah is beautiful and likes beauty , pride is disdaining the truth ( with arrogance , vanity) and despising people.”

HAritha Ibn Wahab Radiyallauhuanha reported Allah’s Messinger ( S.A.W) as saying : “Shall I inform you about the inhabitants of the Fire (hell)? They are , ‘ The cruel , the proud and the conceited persons. ‘ “

Abu Sa’eed Radiyallahu anha reported that the Prophet (S.A.W) said : “He who is humble for Allah’s sake to a degree , Allah will exalt his status to one grade until He makes his abode in the higher rank of the High Places ( i.e in Paradise). If anyone is proud against Allah’s orders to a grade , Allah will degrade him until He will put him to the lowest ofthe Low places ( i.e in Hell) “

 

The Major Sins Of The Heart !!

Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallauhu anha ) narrated Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W) as saying : “Allah does not look at your forms and your possessions , but He looks at your hearts and your deeds.”

An – Nu’man ibn Basheer (Radiyallauhu anha) related that the Prophet (S.A.W) said : “In the body  there is a piece of flesh , if it becomes good the whole body becomes good , but if it gets corrupt the whole body gets corrupt , that is the HEART !”

The Greatest Of The Major Sins !!

Abu Bakr (radiyallahu anha) related that the Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W) said : “Shall I not inform you about the greatest of the major sins?” We said , “Yes , O’ Messenger of Allah”. He said , “Associating others with Allah in worship and to be undutiful to ones parents.” He then sat up from the reclining position and said , “And I warn you against giving a lying speech and false statements … ” and he kept repeating it . We wished he should stop repeating it .
