Jealousy and Envy

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: "They are enemies for Allah's bounties." They asked: "Who are they?" He said:"Those who envy people for what Allah has given them of

Allah says:"Allah favored some of you over others with wealth and properties¦ Do they deny the favors of Allah?" [Soorah an-Nahl (16): 71] And: "Do they envy men for what Allah has given them of His Bounty?" [Soorah an-Nisa (4): 54]

"It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in this world, and We raised some of them above others in ranks, so that some may employ others in their work. But the mercy of your Lord is better."[Soorah az-Zukhruf (43): 32]

"Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn… from the evil of envious when he
[Soorah al-Falaq (113): 1]

 At-Tirmidhee narrated from al-Zubayr Ibn al-Awam that the Prophet (sallallahualaihi wa-sallam) said: "There has come to you the disease of the nations before you, jealousy and hatred. This is the 'shaver' (destroyer); I do not say that it shaves hair, but that it shaves (destroys) faith" [(Hasan) Jamee at-Tirmidhee (2434)]

The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) warned against envy by comparing it to fire that completely burns the wood. He (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: "Beware of jealousy, for verily it destroys good deeds the way fire destroys wood." [Abu Dawood]

Hasad is a disease of the heart and it causes impurity to the heart, when Allah's Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) was asked who are the best of people? He (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) replied: "the one with a clean heart and truthful tongue." They asked: 'We understand a truthful tongue, but what does a clean heart mean?' he answered:'It is the heart of one that is pious, pure, and is free of sin, transgressions, hatred and Hasad." [Ibn Majah]

Narrated Abu Musa: Allah's Apostle said, "Allah gives respite to the oppressor, but when He takes him over, He never releases him." Then he recited, "Such is the seizure of your Lord when He seizes (population of) towns in the midst of their wrong: Painful indeed, and severe is His seizure.' (11.102) Sahih Bukhari: Volume 6, Book 60, Number 208. 

Allah, the Exalted, has therefore forbidden us from desiring what other have,"Do not wish for what we have favored some of you over others." [Soorah an-Nisa (4): 32]
"Surely, the most noble of you to Allah is the most God-fearing." [Soorah al-Hujurat (49): 13]
"And the Hereafter with Your Lord is (only) for those who have Taqwa." [Soorah az-Zukhruf (43): 35]

In order to discourage envy, the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said:"Do not look to those above you. Look to those below you, as it will more likely remind you of Allah's favors bestowed on you."[Saheeh al-Bukharee and Saheeh Muslim] On another occasion, he said:"If one of you looks at someone wealthier and better built than him, he should also look at someone of lower standard than himself." [Saheeh Muslim]

Allah says: "O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Rabb and a healing for that in your chests." [Soorah Yunus (10): 57]
