1. Having humility you  come to truly know Allah’s perfection, His abundant favors upon us and how we are fully dependent upon Him.

2. Having humility,  we have to come to know ourselves, where we come from and our numerous weaknesses and shortcomings.”

2. Keep in mind and contemplate at all times the Greatness of Almighty Allah.

3. Reflect on this thought that if Allah detests pride then surely He would hate the mutakabbir (a proud person).

4. And Almighty Allah loves humility and submissiveness, so  He would love the  humble person.
