BOASTING. Arabic خفاخوة
Kharah. Muhammad is related to have said, I swear by God, a tribe must desist from boasting of their forefathers; for they are nothing more than coals from hell-fire (i.e. they were idolaters); and if you do not leave off boasting, verily you will be more hateful in the sight of God than a black-beetle. Mankind are all the sons of Adam, and Adam was of the earth” (Mishkat, xxii. c. 13.)
