Pride is something that has become the norm and backbone of society especially in the developed world. I say this having been fortunate to travel to many places around the globe.
I can say the most humblest of people and most giving are those that have the least. Now, what does that tell you of mankind?
Pride, arrogance and greed are fuel to the fire. We all have elements of this and that's why its ever so important to cleanse one's heart and lower soul (nafs al lawwama).
May Allah guide us and make us noble servants and keep us away from pride, arrogance and greed. Ameen.
