قَالَ اللهُ تَعَالَى : الْكِبْرِيَاءُ رِدَائِيْ وَالْعُظْمَةُ إِزَارِيْ فَمَنْ نَازَعَنِيْ وَاحِدًا مِنْهُمَا قَذَفْتُهُ فِيْ النَّارِ
Allah Taala said, “Arrogance is My clothes and greatness is My sheath. Whoever revokes one of them from Me, I will certainly throw him into Hell.”

All Readers! There are some important things that we must understand about some hadith qudsi about arrogance. Pay attention!
First; what is meant by “arrogance is My clothes (Allah’s dress)” and “greatness and glory is My sheath (Allah’s sheath)” is that only God is worthy of being arrogant, of greatness, and of glory. These qualities cannot be possessed by creatures.
Second; the three hadith qudsi above explain, that all beings are forbidden to have arrogance, feel noble, and feel great. Why? Of course, because of these characteristics are the attributes of Allah, also because there will not be even one good that will be obtained by someone who has an arrogant nature, who feels noble, and who feels great.
Third; in the three hadith qudsi above Allah explains, that Allah will torment those who are arrogant, who feel noble, and feel great in Hell.
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of the hadith qudsi about arrogance. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!
