Iyad bin Himar narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said: Allah (God), the Most High has revealed to me that you (people) should be humble, so that no one transgresses another, or boasts to the other. (In Muslim)
In other words, if we want to know if we are humble, we should look within and assess our actions and truly ask ourselves;
- Do we cross other’s boundaries? Be it in rights or space or even law?
- Do we talk and think highly of ourselves in front of others especially when others are down?
I continue to be amazed with how real the prophet’s sayings are and how they are simple yet powerful when it comes to finding a way of life that is filled with goodness for ourselves and for others.
I ask god in this post, during this blessed night in this blessed month – that is about to come to an end, to make us humble and to account ourselves when we transgress or boast and seek forgiveness soon thereafter.
