Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah protect and preserve him. Ameen!) instructed senior Mufti of Gilgit,
‘Be vigilant in protecting yourself from thoughts of self praise and arrogance. That is, I am a scholar, a Mufti, I am superior to others. Etc.
Remember that acting on blameworthy morals lead to diminishing facilitation (tawfeeq) of good deeds.
A real loss indeed.’
