Two Roosters

Two roosters lived in a village. They were close friends. But one day they fought for supremacy in the farmyard. Finally one was vanquished and he went back to hen house. The victor flew up to the roof of the barn and begins to crow, ‘I’ve won, I’ve won!’ An eagle swooped down and carried him away. The rooster that had been defeated suddenly found himself unchallenged master of the farmyard.

Morals: The enemy is often defeated by his own pride.

Likewise, pride brings about one’s downfall. On the other hand, Allah shall elevate the one who humbles himself for His sake.
