Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) while addressing the audience in his majlis once mentioned:

“Beloved brothers! Let me inform you about the evil traits of pride, jealousy and haughtiness. These evil traits have no limits and are extremely serious in the sight of Allah Ta'ala. Pride, jealousy and haughtiness are among those sins whose punishment is extremely severe. These are connected to the spiritual being of a person. There are some sins which relate to the physical being of a person, e.g. one’s lust and carnal desires. The punishment for getting involved in such sins are indeed detrimental, however they are not as severe as getting involved in these spiritual maladies (i.e. the sin of pride, haughtiness and jealousy). (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/70)

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

Once a respected 'Aalim arrived and requested some advice. I told him that you are an 'Aalim of deen, what advice can I offer you? After requesting for the second time, I told him that I only remember one lesson which I continue mentioning. The lesson that I have learnt from my elders is that to the best of your ability, regard yourself as a complete non-entity (i.e. if you wish to gain acceptance in the sight of Allah Ta'ala, then do not attach any importance to yourself and do not have pride). These words had such an impact on the 'Aalim that he immediately began to weep. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 10/ 33)

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

Beloved brothers! Listen attentively to what I have to say and regard my advice as a bequest to you. During the majlis that was conducted after the Asr salaah (wherein the kitaab was read before you), the aspect of good character and sublime conduct was repeatedly discussed. I would like to share some advice related to that. In various places of the Quraan Majeed Allah Ta'ala makes mention of the sublime character of Nabi (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam). Nabi (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) himself mentions:

How will One Determine Adab in Deen

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) was once asked regarding placing deeni kitaabs in a bathroom and toilet that was built but not yet used. Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) replied that, apparently this does not seem to be correct. Although the bathroom and toilet have thus far not been used at all, however since they have been built for the purpose of one relieving oneself and bathing, it is against the dictates of adab (etiquette) to place deeni kitaabs therein. Upon hearing this answer, an educated person who was present at that time enquired, “Doesn’t the impermissibility apply to when the bathroom and toilet are already in use?” Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) said that the Jurist have used the words المعد لذلك (i.e. the Quraan, hadeeth or deeni kitaabs should not be taken to any place that has been designed and prepared for such a purpose). By pondering over the statement of the Jurist, one understands that the ruling will relate to a place that has been built for this purpose, irrespective of whether people have commenced using it or not. Moulana further explained that just as it is impermissible for one to place a pair of new shoes on a deeni kitaab, though one had not yet began using it, similarly will be the ruling in this case. Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) then mentioned that etiquette revolves around the general practice of society. One should see whether something is regarded as etiquette in society or not.

The Sign of Pride Leaving a Person

Hazrat Sheikh Moulana Zakariyya (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) mentioned:

Once a person wrote a letter to me asking, "What is the sign that pride no longer remains with a person?” I replied that if any person finds fault with you, then you are not overcome by anger. Instead you begin to examine within your heart whether what the person has said is true or not. If after pondering and reflecting over the situation, your heart tells you that the statement the person made was correct and you suffer from that weakness, then you are immediately prepared to accept your mistake and correct yourself. If this is your condition, then this is a sign that pride has left you. However, on the converse, if after hearing the statement of that person, you are overcome by rage and anger without even taking a moment to think whether what was said was correct or not, then this is a clear sign of you having pride". (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/71)
