​PRIDE & EXTRAVAGANCE

 The Prophet said: Anyone who wears his garment below the ankle, out of pride, will enter hell.

Only the humble will enter heaven. 

It’s in the same line with the hadith that says:

Anyone who has the weight of a mustard seed of pride will not enter paradise. 

Meanwhile, No one is able to be completely free of pride and arrogance, even if he claims that this is so. Such a claim is unacceptable, because by saying it, he is praising himself. Only in the case of those whom the wahy (revelation) testified that they were free of pride. 

For example, The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever trails his garment on the ground out of pride, Allaah will not look at him on the Day of Resurrection.” Abu Bakr said to him, “O Messenger of Allaah, my izaar slips down if I do not pay attention to it.” He said: “You are not one of those who do it out of pride. (Bukhari). 

May Allah safeguard us from extravagant life and remove that atom of pride in our life.
