English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Salamah bin Al-Akwa` (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "Man continues to display haughtiness and arrogance until he is recorded among the arrogant and will be therefore afflicted with what afflicts them.”
[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2000].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 76. “Verily! Allah likes not those who are glad (with ungratefulness to Allah’s Favours)” To adopt the habits and manners of good people is deemed to be desirable. But, on the contrary, to take to the bad ways of bad people is considered undesirable. A man will ultimately be counted among those people whom he will take as a model to emulate, because he is gradually fitted into their framework and assimilates all of their qualities. Quite naturally then retribution will be administered to him accordingly.
