WHOEVER LIKES PEOPLE
TO STAND UP FOR HIM, OUT OF RESPECT, IS
DOOMED TO HELL
Mu'aawiyah Ibne Aboo Sufyaan radhiyallahu anhu relates
that the Apostle of Allah
sallallahu alayhi wasallam said,
"Whoever feels happy at people standing up,
out of respect to him, should better make his abode in Hell."
The above warning, evidently, is with regard to the
person who wishes people to
stand up in his honour and feels happy on it. It is a sign of vanity and the ultimate destination of the vain, the proud, and the haughty is Hell.
But it is a different matter if people stood up out of love and respect for
anyone without his wanting it, though the noble Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not even like that
