Consider the consequences!

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Whoever possesses this attribute of pride and arrogance, his soul will be spoiled and his heart will be stamped with a seal of rust.

{...Thus does Allah seal every heart of an arrogant tyrant.}

[Ghāfir: 35] 

{...There is not within their breasts except pride, [the extent of] which they cannot reach...}

[Surat Ghāfir: 56]

The leader of the arrogant is Satan,

{Except Satan; he was arrogant and became among the disbelievers.}

[Surat Sād: 74]

Arrogance is also the trait of tyrannical kings like Pharaoh:

{And he was arrogant, he and his soldiers, in the land, without right, and they thought that they would not be returned to Us.}

[Surat al - Qasas: 39]

Another example is a man who has great wealth and many children and who begins to feel proud because of them. Arrogance does actually sneak into his heart, driving him to reject the truth. This is like Al - Walīd ibn al - Mughīrah about whom Allah Almighty says:

{Then he turned back and was arrogant .}

[Surat al-Muddaththir: 23]

Arrogance causes destruction to the nations that deny the truth,

{As for ‘Ād, they were arrogant on the earth without right...}

[Surat Fussilat: 15]

And about the people of Prophet Sālih (peace be upon him), Allah Almighty says:

{Th ose who were arrogant said: “Verily, we disbelieve in what you believe in.”}

[Surat al - A‘rāf: 76]

The arrogant will end up in Hellfire; what an evil destination!

{...Is there not in Hell a residence for the arrogant?}

[Surat az-Zumar: 60]

The Prophet (mayAllah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:“The arrogant will be gathered on the Day of Judgment resembling tiny particles in the image of men. They will be covered with humiliation everywhere. They will be dragged into a prison in Hellfire called Būlas and submerged in the Fire of Fires, drinking the drippings of the people of Hellfire.”

[Narrated by Al -Tirmidhi; Sahīh  (authentic)]

May Allah keep us away from this.
