The definition of pride

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

What is the definition of pride in Hadith?

 

Answer

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has defined pride in the following Hadith:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “The person who has the weight of a mustard seed of pride in his heart, will not enter Jannah. Someone said, ‘A man likes his clothing and shoes to be beautiful/superior’ [i.e. will this be regarded as pride?]. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Allah is certainly beautiful and he loves beauty. Pride is disdaining the truth [due to self conceit and arrogance] and contempt for people.”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 91)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
