If you follow your ego and become proud you will fall. How do we keep our place and go higher? By knowing that everything we have is from Allāh ﷻ. He ﷻ brought us to this nice way. Our worship, our good deeds are all from Him ﷻ. Anyone can be better than we are, as in the story of the disciple of ‘Īsá (as) and the robber.
