Salim’s daughter bought a brand new iPhone 6. She got a screen protector along and beautiful phone cover as well. She showed her new phone to her dad and the conversation is as follows:
Dad: This is a nice phone. How much did you pay for it?
Daughter: It’s $ 700 for the phone, $ 20 for the phone cover, $ 5 for the screen protector.
Dad: Oh why did you get the screen protector and the phone cover, you could have saved $ 25.
Daughter: Dad! I’ve spent $ 700 on my phone whats the point if I don’t spend $ 25 for its safety? And more over this cover makes my phone look beautiful.
Dad: Is it not an insult to Apple that it did not make the phone safe enough?
Daughter: No dad! They in fact recommend us to get the screen protector and the phone cover for its safety. And I didn’t want it to get damaged.
Dad: Does it reduce the beauty of the phone?
Daughter: No it doesn’t. It makes my phone look more beautiful.
Dad looked at his daughter, smiled and said, “My daughter you know I love you. You paid $ 700 for a phone and you spent $ 25 for its safety. What’s the point if you do not cover yourself with hijab for your own safety? This phone will not be questioned on Aakhirah but my daughter you and me will be questioned.”

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
