Envy in Islam, Jealousy and Islam, Hasad (Destructive Jealousy), Sickness of Soul and Heart

Envy in Islam, Sickness of Soul and HeartSo you don't like a person because he/she possesses some thing you imagine to be good that you don't have? You feel 'sick' whenever you see him/her; hear people talking about him/her or even when you think of him/her while you are alone. This is because he/she is smarter or wealthier or more knowledgeable or intelligent or virtuous than you are. And you are not able to appreciate his/her unique talent or possession or popularity. And by your behavior you try to downgrade, avoid, or defame him/her, feel happy when he/she suffers a loss or is in a difficulty. But you hide this feeling inside yourself. Do you know that this condition is a sickness of soul and heart and it also harms your physical health is called as Envy, Destructive Jealousy (Hasad)?

Hasad (destructive jealousy) is among the most destructive emotions or feeling which a man may have towards his fellow human being. It causes him to wish evil for others and to be happy when misfortune befalls them. On the other hand, what Islam permits in contrast to Hasad (destructive jealousy) is Ghibtah (envy that is free from malice), which means neither loving the loss of the blessing nor hating for it to remain with the person, but desiring the same for oneself without the removal of the blessing from others.

The Prophet of Allah (SWT) said: Beware of envy because indeed envy destroys good deeds in the same manner as fire destroys wood

Imam al-Baqir (as) said: Verily envy destroys faith like fire destroys wood

The Prophet of Allah (SWT) said: Envy appears to take over destiny

The Prophet of Allah (SWT) said: Allah (SWT) the Almighty said to Musa bin Imran (as), Oh son of Imran, don't be envious of what I have given to people from my grace and don't enchant your eyes with the blessings and don't put your soul in search of them, because the envious person is unhappy at my blessings that I have distributed among my servants

The Prophet of Allah (SWT) said: Beware! Don't be enemy of blessings of Allah (SWT). (He was asked: Oh Prophet of Allah (SWT) "who are those who keep enmity with the blessings of Allah (SWT)?" The Prophet of Allah (SWT) replied: "Those who are envious."

The Prophet of Allah (SWT) said: Beware! Indeed a disease that afflicted past nations before you has reached you like an ant and that is envy because it doesn't eat hair but eats away (your) religion

The Prophet of Allah (SWT) said: Don't be desirous of achieving blessings except from two: A person whom Allah (SWT) has bestowed wealth and he spends it (in the way of Allah (SWT)) day and night and the other person is the one whom Allah (SWT) has given knowledge of Noble Qur'an and he keeps it up with him day and night

Imam Ali (as) said: Envy is a disease without remedy

Imam Ali (as) said: Envy is worst of diseases

Imam Ali (as) said: The envious person is permanently sick

Imam Ali (as) said: The health of body is in absence of envy

Imam Ali (as) said: The envious person is sick although he (apparently) possesses healthy body

Imam Ali (as) said: The envious person has many unfulfilled desires and his sins are double

Imam Ali (as) said: May Allah (SWT) deal with envy! For what an enemy it is! It kills the one who has it

Imam Ali (as) said: The one who is envious imagines that the blessing possessed by envied will be lost and reach him

Imam Ali (as) said: The envious person looks like a loving friend by his speech, but hides malice behind his actions, he is friend only by name but by his characteristics, he is an enemy

Imam Ali (as) said: I have not seen an oppressor so similar to oppressed like an envious person, (because he is) with permanently sick soul, disturbed heart and inseparable sorrow

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said: The envious person harms himself before he harms the envied, like Iblis who because of his envy left the legacy of curse on himself and for Adam (as) became the source of God's selection (over himself)

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said: Satan (Iblis) says to his gang: 'Instill envy and disobedience among them (human beings) because these two are equal to shirk (polytheism)'

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said: Beware of envying each other for indeed the basis of disbelief (kufr) is envy

Hazrat Luqman (as) said to his son: The envious person has three signs: backbiting behind them (whom he envies), flatters them in front and is happy when they are in trouble.

So what should a believer do when he/she observes a blessing that he/she lacks is possessed by another servant of Allah (SWT)?

He/she should desire that the blessing possessed by another servant of Allah (SWT) should remain as such and increase and may Allah (SWT) bestow him/her with the same blessing.

He/she must not desire that the blessing be lost from the servant of Allah (SWT). He/she must appreciate that Allah (SWT) has bestowed the blessing to His servant by His own grace and he/she should be happy with Allah (SWT).

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said: A believer desires (to achieve) a blessing and avoids envy while a hypocrite envies and is not desirous of (achieving) the blessing

O Allah, Bless Muhammad and his Household and provide me with a breast safe from envy, such that I envy none of Thy creatures and in anything of Thy bounty and such that I see none of Thy favors toward any of Thy creatures in religion or this world, well-being or reverential fear, plenty or ease, without hoping for myself better than it through and from Thee alone, who hast no associate! Imam Zainul Abideen (as)

Envy is a dangerous Heart Disease, Envy, Jealousy (Hasad) (Jinn (Genie) Magic story)

Envy is a dangerous Heart Disease, Envy, Jealousy (Hasad)This legendary story is well known. Yet, it is worth repeating. Once a person went through a rigorous process of penance to please Jinn (Genie) and he succeeded. Jinn (Genie) appeared and said, "What is your wish, my dear?" The person prayed, "My Jinn (Genie)! Kindly promise that you would grant whenever I wish for any thing!" The Jinn (Genie) agreed, "All right, you will always get whatever you wish for, but there was a condition to your wishes your - that whatever you wish for, your neighbour will get just the double." And the person went home, happy.

Next morning, he wished for a palatial house. KAZAM He got one, and his neighbour got two! Then, he wished for a luxury car. KAZAM He got that also. Again, the neighbour got two luxury cars! Desires are self-feeding. So, they multiplied manifold in his case too. He wished for more and more. The gracious Jinn (Genie) granted all his wishes. He became very prosperous. But the neighbour becomes twice as prosperous! Now, the person was very jealous and envied. What to do!

He found a clever solution. He prayed Jinn (Genie) to take one of his eyes. KAZAM The wish was granted. He lost one eye and his neighbour lost both eyes. He further asked the Jinn (Genie) to take one of his hands and then one of his legs. In this way, he lost one eye, one hand, and one leg. And the neighbour lost both eyes, both hands, and both legs. Now, the person felt contented and said, "It is wonderful, indeed. Thanks a lot, the great Jinn (Genie)!"

Imam Ali (as) said: The envious person is not satisfied until the blessing (from the person he envies) is lost

Envy is a dangerous Heart Disease, Envy, Jealousy (Hasad) (Frog Magic story)

Envy is a dangerous Heart Disease, Envy, Jealousy (Hasad)A woman was out golfing one day when she hit her ball into the woods. She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap.

The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes."

The woman freed the frog and the frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes - that whatever you wish for, your husband will get 10 times more or better!"

The woman said, "That would be okay," and for her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis, that women will flock to."

The woman replied, "That will be okay because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will only have eyes for me".

So, KAZAM she's the most beautiful woman in the world! For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world.

The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world and he will be ten times richer than you."

The woman said, "That will be okay because what is mine is his and what is his is mine."

So, KAZAM she's the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, the woman was very jealous and envied of her husband, and hence she answered, "I would like a mild heart attack."

Imam Ali (as) said: Envious person is happy when evil befalls (the envied) and sad over happiness
