Hadith on Pride: The Prophet rebukes Hafsa for insulting Safiyyah

Anas reported: Safiyyah heard that Hafsa called her “the daughter of a Jew,” so Safiyyah started crying. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, entered while she was crying and he said, “What makes you cry?” Safiyyah said, “Hafsa called me the daughter of a Jew.” The Prophet said, “Verily, you are the daughter of a prophet, your uncle is a prophet, and you are married to a prophet, so how can she boast over you?” Then, the Prophet said, “Fear Allah, O Hafsa!”

عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ بَلَغَ صَفِيَّةَ أَنَّ حَفْصَةَ قَالَتْ بِنْتُ يَهُودِيٍّ فَبَكَتْ فَدَخَلَ عَلَيْهَا النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَهِيَ تَبْكِي فَقَالَ مَا يُبْكِيكِ فَقَالَتْ قَالَتْ لِي حَفْصَةُ إِنِّي بِنْتُ يَهُودِيٍّ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّكِ لَابْنَةُ نَبِيٍّ وَإِنَّ عَمَّكِ لَنَبِيٌّ وَإِنَّكِ لَتَحْتَ نَبِيٍّ فَفِيمَ تَفْخَرُ عَلَيْكِ ثُمَّ قَالَ اتَّقِي اللَّهَ يَا حَفْصَةُ
