Pride and Islam

There are few personality traits which must never overcome nature. From among those personality traits the most disliked is “pride”. Self-pride was the reason for which Satan became cursed. This was the reason for which Jews became cursed and most disliked by Allah SWT. It is the only reason which makes the king, a bagger. In short, pride makes a person god of himself. Allah SWT has condemned those who are proud (which means):

“To Him belongs whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And those near Him are not prevented by arrogance from His worship, nor do they tire”. [Al-Quran, surah Al-Anbya, verse 19]

In the verse quoted above, Allah SWT says that no matter what people do, even if they reject the oneness of Allah out of pride, they only worship Him. In every religion, people have an ultimate god, or greatest god, who cannot be seen like Hindus believe in Brahma, Christians believe in a god who has a son, etc. even if they reject Allah SWT, but they cannot reject their ideology of the unseen god which could not be seen. In another place, Allah SWT says that (which means):

“Or who is it that could provide for you if He withheld His provision? But they have persisted in insolence and aversion.” [Al-Quran, surah Al-Mulk, verse 21]

Those, who are in doubt about the blessings they get, should think that what if their blessings are stopped? What will they do if everything which they have is snatched or destroyed what will they do?

An important thing should be noted that these verses are not only for the rejecters of Islam but for everyone who rejects signs of Allah in any form. Today, Muslims have changed their ways they curse their lives and fates when they fell into any trouble, they forget to supplicate an invoke Allah or even pay their thanks to Allah when they get some good news or are happy. When someone forgets Allah, it means he thinks he is self-sufficient which means pride and arrogance.
