Beware Of Raising Yourself Above Others
Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam said:
“Pay attention to your heart, beware of raising yourself above others, and beware of belittling others. How many of these people have given for the sake of this religion – but have kept it secret between them and the Lord of the Worlds – from he whose statement is belittled and his appearance mocked, and he might even have given more for this religion than an earthful of people like you ever would?
So, pay attention to yourself, and may Allaah have Mercy on a man who knows his limits and stays inside those limits.”
