Do not let people’s praise get to our head. Do not be proud of our looks, wealth, knowledge, or piety. Our achievements are nothing in comparison to the great sahabah, yet they were the most humble of people. ‘Utbah ibn Ghazwan r.a., who was one of the first to accept Islam, and who courageously fought in many battles including the battle of Badr, the battle of Uhud, and the battle of the Trench, said:
“I seek refuge with Allah that I should consider myself great,
while I am insignificant to Allah”.
So who are we to think and talk big about ourselves?
Be humble o Muslims!
