An excellent reminder for all those who are seeking knowledge. Bismillah..
Hasan al Basri rahimahullaah advised some of his students admonishing them about avoiding the state of being proud. He said:
1) Do not deceive yourself into becoming too proud because you are in a good or righteous environment, for there is no place that is better than Jannah, and our father, Adam alayhis Salaam, experienced there what is known to all.
2) Do not become proud merely because you worship often, for consider what happened toIblis (Satan) after he spent a great deal of time worshiping.
3) Do not think yourself great because you have met with righteous people, for there is no man more righteous than the Prophet, alayhim Salaatu wa Salaam, yet the disbelievers and hypocrites did not benefit by simply knowing him.
