How to recognize the arrogant person?

SHAFAQNA – One of the ways which the scholars of ethics use to test if a human being is arrogant or not, for the sake of curing such a person, is to see if he/she greets others (says Salaam to others). Those who are obliged to these aspects of Islamic tradition; if it is noticed that a person likes others to greet him/her, must understand that such a person is suffering from the dangerous illness of arrogance. Worse still is when such a person is unwilling to reply to others greetings. In this case it is not just arrogance but such a person is not even obliged to the religious aspects. Therefore, for the sake of curing himself/herself, the human being (must) consider greeting others first. It is mentioned in history that no one could overtake the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) in saying Salaam (greeting adults or children) [1].
