hmm...regarding pride, i remember a hadith that i once read regarding the prohibition of priding oneself :hmm:...it was somwthing like a person will not enter the garden if he/she has an atom's weight of pride in them.

can someone please explain that hadith^...if this is off-topic, please forgive me.

Thats "im better than you..." "i won't let my daughter marry you, she went to a Private School.." "my house is bigger than your house.." pride.

This is "i've done such a good thing, i am proud of myself" pride.

Big Difference :)

kibr is a different thing sis, to be honest what we're talking about is when we last felt that self-satisfaction but of course we realise that all success is from Allah alone.

wa maa tawfeeqi Illah Billah :)

Very true, by pride shaitan succeeds in placing ourself more higher than others and we start degrading others , may be just anyone, but the fact is , everything comes from Allah Tallah, every success every thing acquired whats over . Nothing happens without HIS will .Well this particular thing also creates differences amongst all .
May Allah save us from this,

I never missed single prayer out of five daily prayer; also i pray on time. It was not easy for me to achieve that goal since i am so busy; alhamdullilah i accomplished it.

interesting topic..makes u think..and reflect wot u've been thru and feel something special about urself....

trying to read the quran every prayer inshAllah and thinking/focusing on Allah(swt) during prayer and feeling the love for him!

secondly wud be...cleaning the house completing all chores that my mum goes thru before she comes home from work....simply putting a smile on her face!!

holding her hand tightly when ever we go out.....as am not embarrassed of it!

taking my lil brother out and about, such as treating him, buying stuff.....or making food for him before i leave to uni..as he comes from school at lunch for home!

thanking Allah(swt) wot i have and am proud of it..alhamdulilah...

here's a few...

the 1st time i completed the Qur'an

the 2nd time i completed the Qur'an

ANY DAY that i make it to the Masjid ON TIME for all 5 Prayers. in Umerikkka, that can be difficult!

any time that i drop someone off[non-Muslim] and after telling them some stories about the Qur'an or Seerah they leave saying "That's soo cool! i hope i get you for a driver again so i can hear some more!"

completing my first Ramadan w/o breaking a fast. THAT was rough! [and yet, missing it as soon as it was over!]

I bought a Pizza for my wife.

That's the best deal I ever made. I feel proud after that. Before that only she was proud.
