Islam highly commends humbleness and simplicity and includes that as one of the qualities of a true Muslim. Humility is for one who is important and significant and he tries to gain respect and become great among people. We cannot say to any ordinary person to be humble and kind. But we can direct or give guidance to that person by saying to him that you know the value of yourself, if you really know than do not put it in the wrong place.

A person should be humble with his companions. But when the spirit of envy and competition is troubled between rivals and companions than a person may feel over and superior among all of his companions, in actuality this is called jealousy.

Humility is about showing humbleness to a person who is below you. If you find someone who is younger or below than you, or of less important than you than you should not despise or hate him, because he might have a superior heart than you, or should be less sinful, or closer to ALLAH than you. Even if you see a sinful or wicked person and you are the righteous, do not act with haughtiness towards him, and thank ALLAH that He saved you from the misfortune that He put other person through. Remember that there should be some Riyaa (showing off) or pride in your righteous deeds that may cause them to be of no benefit, and that this sinful person may be fearful and regretful concerning his bad acts and deeds, and this may be the cause of forgiveness of his all sins.

Therefore, do not act in arrogantly and haughty way towards anyone. Even when you see a sinner, do not express superiority towards him, nor treat him with domination and arrogance. If you feel that the sinner person may perform some acts and deeds of obedience which you do not, and that you can also posses some defects and issue which the sinner may not, then deal gently with him, and kindly give Dua which will hopefully be the cause of his remembrance and acceptance.

Your deeds and acts also should not become too huge in your eyes. If you do any good deed with proud and with arrogance, or attempt to get closer to ALLAH Almighty through an act of obedience than your deed still may not be accepted.

ALLAH Says in Holy Quran, verse 5:27

And recite to them the story of Adam’s two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to ALLAH], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], “I will surely kill you.” Said [the former], “Indeed, ALLAH only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him]  is one of the authorized umrah tour operators in UK offers Cheap Flights to Jeddah from UK
