Do Not Be Arrogant


Do Not Be Arrogant

The companion Hakīm Ibn Hizām رضي الله عنه was from the elders of Quraysh and he would seek knowledge from Mu’ādh Ibn Jabal رضي الله عنه even though Hakīm was fifty years older than Mu’ādh. It was said to him, “You are learning from this youth?” Hakīm replied, “Indeed, what destroyed us is pride (arrogance).”
