A Common Source of Pride

People studying philosophy very often fall into pride. One such philosopher went to a Shaikh. He said many things and the Shaikh kept listening. At the end the Shaikh said jut one thing, "You are an ignoramus." Hearing this the philosopher became all fire and fury. Shaikh politely asked him, "Have I hit you physically?" I have only said a few words. If this is the character of a man's speech that you completely got off the handle then just imagine the power the speech of Allah (SWT).
