IDOLATORS ARE ANTİ-MAHDİ. IDOLATORS DO NOT EMBRACE HAZRAT MAHDİ (AS). They all consider themselves as idols, may Allah forbid. They live separately, as if in the form of kings or duchy. That is to say, they do not accept a power over them. Consequently they never embrace Hazrat Mahdi (as) and Jesus Christ (as).
While establishing the Unity of Islam, the Unity of Islam cannot be attained with pride. Saying; "We are superior, we are great, we are the masters, you should abide by us, we are superior than you." That would not work. "We are servants. We are your brothers, we are friends, companions. We have accepted you as our friends. We've come here to be your servant." Such a humble, loving, well intentioned, friendly and protective attitude is the basis. Nothing can be attained through claim of superiority and grandeur.
A Muslim should be like the soil. He should be the most humble one. He will not be the head; he will always try to be the feet. The ambition to become the head is an abnormal act. It is an ambition of the lower-self. It is not something nice. The devout Muslim, the good Muslim, is the one who always wants to be the feet, the servant of the others. Muslim is the one who wants to be the soil; such are the desirable, acceptable ones.
If you do not accept humility, if you behave haughty, if you act arrogant, Allah would send scourges upon you. May Allah forbid! If you behave inoffensive, if you behave humble, abundance would come upon you, a feeling of peace would come upon you. You will be filled with radiance inside and out. You will prosper. Otherwise Allah collapses you from all sides. You would not have abundance, peace, peace of mind, idea or any radiance. May Allah forbid! Allah would take His Light away from you.
Feeling a sense of [unjustified] superiority causes snobbery and leads to impertinence. The tragic thing is that they become miserably senseless. For instance, they start lying swiftly and foolishly. They start talking irrationally, saying things that even the most foolish people wouldn't say. Such people have an astounding anarchy in their souls, an insane anarchy and they become prone to unbelief.
In the Qur'an God says, ' ...they repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in spite of their own certainty about them.' They resisted their good conscience. Otherwise their good conscience demands the right choice and tells them to "do". But they crush it. That is why their faces are darkened. Or else when people do not resist their good conscience, when they listen to the stirrings of their conscience, their faces will be radiant.
One might be beautiful but arrogant and that beauty would not have any meaning. Beauty can also be an incitement. One might be young and beautiful but become mad with arrogance and vanity. You might see someone as ugly but that person could love madly and passionately. That person could then present a thousand times more beauty than those you call beautiful.
You would appear as a mad person when you boast, when you become haughty. That would be very repellent and you wouldn't be loved. When you boast, when you act haughtily you make yourself unlovable. Why do you boast? Why do you act haughtily? You do so, to make people love you, right? Actually it has the exact opposite effect and you lose all the love you have.
If a person is very egocentric, if he likes himself a lot, if he has an extreme air of haughtiness, all his body becomes egocentric. The whole body becomes his ego. His whole body becomes sick. I mean he becomes insane. That is what happened to Pharaoh, to Nimrod. They lost their sanity. When that is the case, satan settles in their body. They become unable to act rationally and in a balanced manner. They lose the ability to be reasonable.
The best attitude that can be adopted against egocentricity and haughtiness is to be submissive towards God, to put trust in God, to be patient and humble and to avoid being egocentric. The shortest remedy to that in the Qur'an is self-criticism. One should criticize himself both while he is alone and while he is in the company of others.
