What causes someone to become arrogant and what will happen to arrogant people in the hereafter?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: The main reason for arrogance is the feeling of inferiority and abjectness in a person. For example someone who knows that he/she has no knowledge about a subject and wants to show off in order to cover his/her deficiency [1]. In another narration, Imam Sadeq (AS) pointed to the unpleasant consequence for arrogant people in the hereafter by saying: On the Day of Judgment, the arrogant people will turn into the shape of the ants, and other people will trample upon them until Allah (SWT) is finished with assessing their cases [2]. In this regard, it is narrated from Imam Baqir (AS) who said: The one, who in his /her heart, there is an atom of arrogance, will not enter paradise [3].
