On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said:
Pride is my cloak and greatness My robe, and he who competes with Me in respect of either of them I shall cast into Hell-fire.
It was related by Abu Dawud
It is mentioned in the ayaah of the Quraan that, "Allah does not love the arrogant people".And in the hadith it is also narrated that the Holy Prophet (may peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) , "Whosoever has a small amount of pride in his heart will not enter paradise."

Whether one likes it or not, the truth is that every human being excluding the Prophets (may devine peace be upon them)have pride in their heart, may it be a large amount or a small amount.
Even though this is an attribute which specifically refers only to Allah, and the attributes which are particular with mankind are those that one has forgotten such as; humility, humbleness, modesty and submissioness.
For this reason it is important that every human considers himself the sufferer of this disease called pride before he commences in his purification and cure.
Especially those people who are fulfilling the visible commands of Islam with punctuality trying to gain faith, truth, kindness and wisdom to the highest degree, just for the pleasure of Allah, and who wish to create some weight and spirit in their actions.
These loved ones should always keep in mind the fact that Allah's council chamber is of the utmost cleanliness and is pure from every fault, therefore the path leading to his meeting will be highlypure and clean, and he who is full of dirt of sins is not fit for Allah 's chamber.
So throw away that pride of yours.Untill now,
Salam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh Alaik.
