What’s there to be proud of?

Reminder from Hasan Al-Basri r.a. advised some of his students admonishing them about avoiding the state of being proud. He said:

1) Do not deceive yourself into becoming too proud because you are in a good or righteous environment, for there is no place that is better than Jannah, Paradise, and our father Adam a.s., experienced there what is known to all.

2) Do not become proud merely because you worship often, for consider what happpened to Iblis (Satan) after he spent a great deal of time worshipping.

3) Do not think yourself great because you have met with the righteous people, for there is no man more righteous than the Prophet s.a.w. , yet the disbelievers and hypocrities did not benefit by simply knowing him.

May Allah swt guide us away from this vices and guide us to sirratul mustaqim.
