Thirty-third Greater Sin: Pride or Arrogance
Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time. Before it was for and by the guidance of Elijah Muhammad. Now I think with my own mind, sir! We believed in him. We actually believed that God, in Detroit by the way, that God had taught him and all of that. I always believed that he believed in himself. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.
Everyone who is taken by death asks for more time, while everyone who still has time makes excuses for procrastination. When the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray. Put aside your pride, Set down your arrogance, And remember your grave. How often it is that a small action becomes great by its intention. And how often it is that a great action becomes small by its intention.

Among the reasons why African-Americans have been and continue to be drawn to Islam are 1 the Islamic heritage of West Africa from where many of their ancestors had come; and 2 the absence of racism in Islam in contrast to the brutal and racist enslavement they had endured. In the early s, a few black leaders strived to help the recently-freed African slaves regain a sense of self-esteem and reclaim their heritage. Fard was a mysterious figure who declared that Islam is the natural religion for Africans, but did not emphasize the orthodox teachings of the faith.
But it is a great irony of the human soul that when we become more humble and submissive to Allah, we fall into a grave trap. We tend to grow in arrogance because we feel our level of submission is better than that of others. It was this same trap that Satan fell into. Once upon a time, Iblis Satan was so pious that he was allowed to worship with the angels. In one twist of events, Iblis was cast out and became the accursed. So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him his soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him….
