Strive for High Rank in the Sight of Allah (swt) Rather than Worldly Status in the Eye!

Taqwa is the standard for high rank and so there is no favoritism for the privileged, as is commonly seen in the Muslim World in the absence of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood. When it was requested that a woman who committed theft be pardoned because she was from a noble family, RasulAllah ﷺ warned the Muslims by saying, إِنَّمَا أَهْلَكَ الَّذِينَ قَبْلَكُمْ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا إِذَا سَرَقَ فِيهِمْ الشَّرِيفُ تَرَكُوهُ وَإِذَا سَرَقَ فِيهِمْ الضَّعِيفُ أَقَامُوا عَلَيْهِ الْحَدَّ وَايْمُ اللَّهِ لَوْ أَنَّ فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتَ مُحَمَّدٍ سَرَقَتْ لَقَطَعْتُ يَدَهَا “The people before you were ruined because when a noble person amongst them committed theft, they would leave him, but if a weak person amongst them committed theft, they would execute the legal punishment on him. By Allah, were Fatimah, the daughter of Muhammad, to commit the theft, I would have cut off her hand.” [Bukhari]
