Benefits of humility and the harms of pride
Allah Rabbul Izzat has very strongly condemned the evil attribute of pride in the Holy Quran. The very first sin committed on the surface of the earth was that of pride, when Iblees rejected the command of Allah Ta’ala to prostrate to Aadam AS. The subject matter and essence of the Quran is ‘Tazkiyatun Nafs’ – purification of the soul, and ‘Tahzeebul Akhlaaq’ – rectification of the character, as the Quran is filled with ayats in which Allah Ta’ala castigates evil qualities and attributes such as pride. One of the worst outcomes of pride is that a person will be deprived of hidayah and guidance, as Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran He will turn away His signs from such people. The verses of Allah Ta’ala are so powerful and compelling that the human psyche automatically inclines towards it. Allah SWT mentions in the Quran that those who reject His verses out of pride will be denied entry in Jannah. Allah Ta’ala says those who were too proud to do His ibadah will be entered into the fire of Jahannum in sheer disgrace. As pride has been strongly condemned both in the Quran as well as the Ahadeeth, humility has been as greatly praised in the same. Allah Rabbul Izzat sent wahi to Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) that He loves and desires that His servants must be humble and not oppress one another. In another narration Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) gives glad tidings to the person who possesses the beautiful attribute of humility without demeaning himself.
