DON’T pretend. Learn to respect; even those who seem “small” to you.
Some “Sheikhs” or “Scholars” will die with negative and black hearts & conscience.
Be yourself, be simple; never put your hopes nor trust in any Imam, Mallam, nor any human or jinn.
Learn only the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) regarding daily living, but never “follow” any Imam, Sheikh nor sect.
FREE yourself and only put all your faith & trust in Allah (God) Almighty; One & Only.
For, Believers are those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a tremor in their hearts, and when they hear His signs rehearsed, find their faith strengthened, and put (all) their trust in their Lord;
Who establish regular prayers and spend (freely) out of the gifts We have given them for sustenance:

That Day, the dominion as of right and truth, shall be (wholly) for ((Allah)) Most Merciful: it will be a Day of dire difficulty for the Misbelievers.
The Day that the wrong-doer will bite at his hands, he will say, “Oh! would that I had taken a (straight) path with the Messenger.
“Ah! woe is me! Would that I had never taken such a one for a friend!
“He did lead me astray from the Message (of Allah. after it had come to me! Ah! the Evil One is but a traitor to man!” Then the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) will say:
“O my Lord! Truly my people took this Qur’an for just foolish nonsense.”
Ignorance is a difference
