What does the Qur'an say about people who scoff and get haughty towards others? By scoffers, I mean those who mock and ridicule. And by haughty, I mean those who are snobbish, prideful, and "scornfully arrogant" as the dictionary puts it.

I ask this because I do notice that much of the younger generations are like this. Not ALL, but much. Many people tend to immediately act haughty towards others they believe to be ignorant or wrong, and scoff at them because of these reasons. It usually leads to arguing, which usually ends up completely fruitless.

What does the Qur'an say about this? The Bible is very clear in saying we should not respond to people who act this way, or we ourselves end up looking foolish and wasting air.

Peace upon you.
The Qur'an is against scoffers and haughty people.
I can't recall all the verses in this context, but here is some of these verses :

Surat Al-Hujurat : 11

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلَا نِسَاءٌ مِّن نِّسَاءٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ ۖ وَلَا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَلَا تَنَابَزُوا بِالْأَلْقَابِ ۖ بِئْسَ الِاسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الْإِيمَانِ ۚ وَمَن لَّمْ يَتُبْ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one's] faith. And whoever does not repent - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.


Surat Luqman : 18
, Luqman said to his son:
وَلَا تُصَعِّرْ خَدَّكَ لِلنَّاسِ وَلَا تَمْشِ فِي الْأَرْضِ مَرَحًا ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ
And do not turn your cheek [in contempt] toward people and do not walk through the earth exultantly. Indeed, Allah does not like everyone self-deluded and boastful.


Surat An-Nahl : 23

لَا جَرَمَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا يُسِرُّونَ وَمَا يُعْلِنُونَ ۚ إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْتَكْبِرِينَ
Assuredly, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. Indeed, He does not like the arrogant.


May be you can find other verses about this topic.

Those who have even a mustard grain size of pride in their hearts will not be admitted to paradise.

Iblees was the first arrogant one for refusing to bow to Prophet Adam Alaihe Salam. He will perish in hell for eternity and is the accursed one.

And [recall] when We took the covenant from the Children of Israel, [enjoining upon them], "Do not worship except Allah ; and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, and the needy. And speak kindly to mankind and establish prayer and give zakah." Then you turned away, except a few of you, and you were refusing.

QS. 16:23
Assuredly, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. Indeed, He does not like the arrogant.

QS. 16:29
So enter the gates of Hell to abide eternally therein, and how wretched is the residence of the arrogant.
