Hazrat Thanwi (Rahmatullah Alaihe) narrates in his book “Khutubatul Ahkam.” If one does not despise anyone but only regards himself as good, he regards his excellences and good conditions to be his own perfection and not a gift of Allah Ta'ala, and he does not have fear of losing or changing of any bounty whether it be knowledge, piety, steadfastness, spiritual exercises, worship, beauty, wealth, honor and good character,then this is referred to as Ujub (vanity). In Shari’at, both are prohibited. One saying of Hazrat Thanwi Rahmatulla Alaihe)from “Kamalaat-e-Ashrafiyyah” is mentioned here, “when a servant becomes lowly and despised in his own eyesight, then he is good in the sight of Allah Ta'ala, and when he regards himself to be good, then he is evil in the sight of Allah Ta'ala.”
