“…I do not like that my followers should take one another as lower or higher, or that they should show pride by taking others to be inferior. Only God knows who is great or small. This kind of distinction (if made by the people) is a sort of insult which is based on hatred and it is feared that this hatred might germinate like a seed and then ruin the person…”

“The greatest worry for my followers should be for the Fear of God, whether they have it or not.

A condition for the Fear of God is that those who have it should live humble lives. This is one aspect of the fear of God through which we have to combat the undue anger. In fact, to avoid anger is the last step on the ladder of those who recognise God well and who are Siddique, The Truthful. It is the anger that produces pride and at times it is the pride that produces anger, for, the anger is displayed when one feels superior to others.

I do not like that my followers should take one another as lower or higher, or that they should show pride by taking others to be inferior. Only God knows who is great or small. This kind of distinction (if made by the people) is a sort of insult which is based on hatred and it is feared that this hatred might germinate like a seed and then ruin the person. They are very courteous when they meet the big people but the fact is that big is he who attends to the poor in humility and consoles him, honours his word and does not utter anything that might offend the man.

God says:

La tanabazoo bil-alqabi bi ‘salismul-fosooqo ba ‘dal-eemani Wa mallam yatub fo-olaika homuzzalimoon

Do not call one another with bad names; it is an evil act. He who offends someone with a bad name, will not pass out of this world, till he finds himself involved in it.

Do not take your brothers as inferior; all of you drink from the same fountain. Who knows as to who will be lucky enough to drink more than others. Nobody can be honourable and great by the worldly principles. Great in the sight of God is he who fears God more (Muttaqi) :

Inna akramakum indallahi atqaakum innallaha Alimun Khabir”.

(Malfoozat Vol. 1, p. 34)
