Obstinacy (Inad) And Arrogance

  • JGLOBAL_WHATSAPP_SHARE
Obstinacy (inad) and "mukabara" is one's rejection of the truth when one hears it. Abu Jahl and Abu Talib were obstinate not to accept the prophethood of Rasulullah 'sall-Allahu 'alaihi wa sal-lam'. They denied it. Obstinacy (inad) is caused by hypocrisy, hatred (hiqd), jealousy, or tama' Rasulullah 'sall- Allahu 'alaihi wa sal-lam' said, "The person whom Allahu ta'ala loathes most is the one who is too obstinate to admit the truth." It is stated in another hadith-i sharif "A Believer (Mu'min) will be dignified and soft." A dignified person will show the easy way in worldly affairs. He will be like a hard rock regarding affairs pertaining to religion. A mountain may wear out with time but a Believer's faith will never wear out.
