Pride/Kibr, Ujib/self content, izzat al-Nafs/Self pride, humbleness/Tawad’u

Satan is described as having pride when he disobeyed the order to prostrate to Adam (upon him peace) The Heffer 2:34

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “The arrogant and vainglorious will be resurrected like ants, on the Day of Judgment, they will stepped upon.” Tirmidhi – the weight of the people will be linked to their weight says Hakim at-Tirmidhi

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever has a small piece of arrogance in his heart will not enter Paradise.” Bukhari

Kibr/Arrogance is to consider yourself better than someone else. To punish people because of your knowledge is arrogance

Ujub/Self pride is when you know that you are doing something and no one else

The difference between arrogance and Ujub/Self pride is that Arrogance is over people and Ujub is in yourself.

(To feel you are better can be normal if have more knowledge but to act up that is the sin)

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) described arrogance as, “Pride is to reject the truth and to debase the people.” (Muslim)

Arrogance is by consensus is prohibited

Sins are two kinds
1. Bodily
2. From the heart

Mu’adh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him) would make major pilgrimage he would announce him presence so if anyone had a questions they could come to him - this is not pride as people needed his knowledge

Examples of arrogance
1. Someone who likes others to stand for him
2. Reject a poor persons invitation and accept a rich persons
3. He does not support relatives
4. Never thank people
5. Reject the truth

The definition of self respect/ Izzat al-Nafs is do something that causes you to be disrespected. Note knowledge does not obey anything so a student should not put himself into a bad place. This is wajib/necessary.

(it is an act of worship to be arrogant to someone who is arrogant)

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “A Muslim does not humiliate themselves.”

It is a sin to be humble to a proud person

Fudail ibn ‘Iyad (may Allah be pleased with him) defined humbleness as, “Humbleness is to lower yourself for the truth and to follow it.”

Humbleness is to see yourself as worse than everyone

Humbleness is necessary

Da’a to humiliate yourself lower than who you are this is prohibited.

Umar Ibn Abdulaziz (may Allah be pleased with him) was the leader of the Muslims during the Ummayyad Dynasty 680-750 (he ruled for about two and a half years). He was trying to find someone in the masjid and he tripped up on someone he said, "Are you a donkey." He said, "No, I am Umar."

Someone who is humble for Allah (Mighty and Majestic) will be raised up
