Benefit: Belittling the People
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Commentary of Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razāq al-Badr: Looking at the people in a belittling manner is a form of pride and arrogance. The intelligent one does not look at anyone in a belittling manner. The one who belittles the people then this will be his punishment [i.e. the aforementioned saying of Ibn Mubārak].
