Ayatollah Faqihi:‎
The member of the Society of Seminary ‎Teachers of Qom said that man must not consider ‎himself as superior to others and said, “If the spirit of arrogance is actualized and expressed, ‎man will fall seriously in the path of servitude.”‎

RNA – In his ethics and exegesis lesson held at Qom’s Ayatollah Golpaygani Seminary, ‎Ayatollah Mohsen Faqihi, a member of the Society of Seminary ‎Teachers of Qom, referred ‎to a narration from Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq, saying, “Someone asked the Imam: ‘What is the ‎closest thing to disbelief and atheism?’ The Imam replied: ‘Pride brings man close to ‎unbelief.’”‎

The head of the Dar al-Thaqalayn Wali al-Asr Institute added, “The meaning of pride is that ‎man has a big ego and sees himself above others. Sometimes pride is sensual and esoteric ‎but sometimes this characteristic is expressed. Arrogance is an expression of pride and when ‎man expresses his pride in his actions, he has fallen to pride.” ‎

Ayatollah Faqihi said that if one must not consider himself superior to others and said, “If the ‎spirit of arrogance is actualized and expressed, man will fall seriously in the path of ‎servitude.”‎
‎ ‎
His Eminence continued, “Greatness is a special and specific attribute of God Almighty and if ‎man has a spirit of arrogance, he has actually put himself next to God. If man looks closely ‎at his life he can see how incapable and weak he is and even a small animal can destroy a ‎human being.”‎

He said that the greatest officials can be crippled and destroyed by a disease and added, ‎‎“We must calculate our incapacities and poverty until we understand that greatness is ‎particular to God. If we are afflicted with pride we will be destroyed.”‎

Ayatollah Faqihi said, “An arrogant person is actually ignorant and sometimes isn’t prepared ‎to participate in a teacher’s classes to obtain knowledge. Some aren’t willing to attend the ‎class because of their arrogance and many people’s problems are due to ignorance.”‎
