Humility Necessitates That One Abandons Insolence and Mockery!
Imaam Ibn Hibbaan (rahimahullaah) said:
It is obligatory that a sensible person adheres to humility and avoids pride. Humility is of two types -the first one is praiseworthy and the other is blameworthy. Praiseworthy humility is to abandon insolence and being scornful. Blameworthy humility is to humble oneself in the presence of one who possesses the things of the worldly life and desiring what such a person possesses. Therefore, a sensible person abandons blameworthy humility in all circumstances and clings to all aspects of praiseworthy humility.
