Chapter 279
ﻲﻐﺒﻟاو رﺎﺨﺘﻓﻻا ﻦﻋ ﻲﻬﻨﻟا بﺎﺑ
Prohibition of Arrogance and Oppression
Allah, the Exalted, says:
So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him [i.e., those
who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious)]
.'' (53:32)
The way (of blame) is only against those who oppress men and wrongly rebel in the earth without
justification; for such there will be a painful torment.
'' (42:42)

`Iyad bin Himar (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Verily, Allah
has revealed to me that you should adopt humility. So that no one may wrong another and no one may be disdainful
and haughty towards another
Anyone whom Allah has granted wealth or authority, beauty or splendour, should take it as Allah's
Gift. He should take to adopt humility and humbleness and express his gratitude for it to Allah. He should benefit
people with the gifts bestowed upon him by Allah and not make them a means of pride and oppression.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
When a person
says: `People have been ruined, he is the one to be ruined the most
In another version: "
He himself is the most ruined among them
This Hadith prohibits a Muslim from saying the statement in the Hadith or something similar to it
out of arrogance and pride. There is no harm, however, if one says it in view of the bad state of affairs to which
Muslims have been reduced as a result of, for example, neglecting the teachings of Islam. Of the religious scholars,
who hold this view, are Imam Malik bin Anas, Imam Al-Khattabi, Al-Humaidi and others. This point has been made
clear in Imam An-Nawawi's Al-Adhkar.
