أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

A true muslim who knows things as they are not supposed to wax proud of what he accomplishes by way of a good deed. No matter how great the accomplishment or how exacting the struggle in the way of Allah SWT, he just does not have the right to pat himself on his back, for his very accomplishment of a good deed, in all reality, is the direct outcome of nothing but the grace and mercy of Allah SWT. Infact no good deed can even issue forth without it. It appears in a hadith:

 ‘Had it not been for the grace and mercy of Allah, we would have not received the guidance in the straight path, now we would have been able to pay zakah and perform salah.’

-Maariful Quran, Surah Ala-Imran: 3: 146-148, Volume 2, page 211.
