Having Humility and Avoiding Snobbery – Story from Al-A’mash

Al-A’mash [rahimahullaah] said, “I approached Khaythama [rahimahullaah] and said, Indeed I saw something from Ibraaheem [An-Nakha’ee] the likes of which I have not seen [before]’’; he [Khaythama] said, ‘what is it?’ I said, ‘I saw him sitting with strangers and informed him about it’, so he said, “I was sitting close to them and disliked that by leaving them people may see that as a sign of some superiority I have over them, so I sat with them.””

Pay Close Attention to Yourself -Neither Be Distracted By Flattery Nor Self-Delusion!

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: ”O miserable one! You are disobedient yet you see yourself as a good-doer; you are ignorant yet you see yourself as a scholar; you are miserly yet you see yourself as a generous person; you are an idiot yet you see yourself as a sensible person, and your lifespan is short yet your hopes are prolonged”
Imaam Dhahabi (rahimahullaah) said: ”I swear by Allaah, (Fudayl) spoke the truth! You (O miserable one) are an oppressor yet you see yourself as one who is oppressed; you eat haraam yet you see yourself as one who fears (Allaah); you are a rebellious evil person yet you see yourself as someone who is just; you seek knowledge for the sake of the worldly things yet you see yourself as one who seeks it for the sake of Allaah”. [End of Quote] [Source: Siyar A’laam An-Nubulaa: 8/440]

Greater need for humility of the heart than of the limbs – Shaykh Ibn Uthaimeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Ibn ‘Uthaimeen said:

Humility of the heart is in greater need of being observed than humility of the limbs. That is because the one who has awe of Allah in his heart is [consequently] more observant of Allah The Mighty and Majestic and of His rights.

Hence, it is necessary for humility of the heart to be paid attention to more than humility of the limbs.It is possible for any individual to practise humility of the limbs, even inside his house. Everyone is able to stand praying motionlessly [out of apparent humility], however having a heart that is heedless. Therefore, it [the heart] is the basis. It is that that requires a person to pay attention to, taking constant and absolute care of it.

Tafsir Surah Yasin, p.36.
