Hadith on Arrogance: Do not ask about three ruined people

Fadalah ibn ‘Ubayd reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Do not ask about three people: a man who competes for the robe of Allah Almighty, for His robe is grandeur and His garment is might, a man who doubts in the matter of Allah, and one who despairs of the mercy of Allah.

عَنْ فَضَالَةَ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ثَلَاثَةٌ لَا تَسْأَلْ عَنْهُمْ رَجُلٌ نَازَعَ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ رِدَاءَهُ فَإِنَّ رِدَاءَهُ الْكِبْرِيَاءُ وَإِزَارَهُ الْعِزَّةُ وَرَجُلٌ شَكَّ فِي أَمْرِ اللَّهِ وَالْقَنُوطُ مِنْ رَحْمَةِ اللَّهِ
