smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah, he was the woman Hala and my birth. Brothers and sisters, I want to talk to you about arrogance and pride and the difference between the two islamically. Are we allowed to be prideful? Are we allowed to have pride? Or at the same time? Can we ask ourselves? Are we allowed to be arrogant? question is what is the difference between the two? So let's take an example of a police. Right? It please, when Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam alayhis salam, he commanded the angels and from amongst them was the police to bow down mix the dude in front of automatic Santa and it bleeds himself he didn't want to

00:00:55--> 00:01:37

make sujood and he thought that because he was made out of fire. And because Adam alayhis salaam was made out of clay and soil from this earth, that he was a better component or made up of a better component. So he felt that he was better than Adam Allah has said him as a human being in his creation. Therefore he didn't need to bow down and follow the command of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So that is showing us an example of arrogance. And that is how at least was arrogant towards the command of Allah subhana wa tada showing that he knew what was better. On the flip side, when we look at pride. Now, are we allowed to be proud to be Muslim, for example? Yes, there's nothing wrong

00:01:37--> 00:02:15

with that. And yes, we should be proud to be Muslim, we should not have any issues with for example, putting our foot in the sink and making blue in a public bathroom. That is something that is that that is completely fine. And there's nothing wrong with that. So we should be happy. And we should be proud of who we are and the individuals that we are and the life that we live and the commands that we follow from Allah subhanho wa Taala as well as some of the profits in the long run even a salon. So being proud, is permissible being arrogant isn't now how is it that we can show arrogance without even sometimes knowing it within our Deen or when it comes to anybody and worship a very

00:02:15--> 00:02:53

simple example brothers and sisters, and this is something where I want each and every one of us to pay attention to you know, sometimes we forget to pray Our Salah or we feel as though you know, I'll just pray later. Or for example, some people go the distance to say I don't even need to pray, right I don't need to pray because there's no reason for it. And you know, there's not really a purpose towards the prayer I'm not seeing any change in my life for example, so I don't need to pray that is challenging the last panel that I had so you are arrogant, over the command of Allah subhana wa tada and what he has prescribed, in fact, made compulsory upon each and every one of us, which is to pray

00:02:53--> 00:03:31

to Allah subhanho wa Taala five times a day. And the same thing applies to all of the other aspects of our Deen when you think you know what's better for you, above what Allah Subhana Allah commanded for us or placed upon us, then you're being arrogant towards the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala thus, you're challenging. Just like at least challenge the last panel with data you are challenging the command of Allah subhana wa tada showing that you think you know best. So brothers and sisters, that's a simple reminder for each and every one of us to know the difference between pride as well as arrogance, and how we as Muslim men can stay away from arrogance. Stay away from what displeases
