Islam and Ego

“Indeed, He does not love the proud.” [an-Nahl (16):23]

“So enter the gates of Hell to dwell therein. Indeed evil is the abode of the proud.” [An-Nahl (16):29]

“Pride is dissatisfaction with the truth, and belittling the people.” [Muslim]

“He will not enter Paradise who has even a speck of pride in his heart.” [Muslim]

“Paradise and the Fire quarreled. Paradise said, ‘The weak and the poor enter me.’ The Fire replied, ‘The oppressive and the proud enter me.’ So Allah Almighty said to the Fire, ‘You are my punishment, in you I punish whom I wish.’ He said to Paradise, ‘You are my mercy to whom I wish, and each of you will certainly be filled.’” [Muslim, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Khuzaimah]

  1. I really love u Nouman and the way u teaches …MASHA-ALLAH
    Prophethood teaches that our aim and function is to be molded by Divine values and achieve good character. Prophets believe that we should perceive our impotence and seek refuge with Divine Power, perceive our weakness and rely on Divine Strength, realize our insufficiency and essential poverty and trust in Divine Mercy, know our need and seek help from Divine Riches, see our faults and plead for pardon through Divine Forgiveness, and perceive our inadequacy and glorify Divine Perfection.
