I am so confused, i don't even understand how to frame this question, sometimes i feel jealous when someone does a good deed that they will get the reward for it, i don't care about this world that they will get popular or they will earn a name or anything, i worry about akhirah that they will earn more greater reward than me, I don't want any popularity or anything I am happy in what ever i have Alhamdullilah, but i want to earn a highest place in paradise or greatest reward in paradise better than people. This is not jealousy for this world but jealousy for akhirah Is this bad think to this way?, I know i feel like its wrong to get jealous. But i don't understand it. Any suggestions or advice how do i change my mind?
Hasad (jealousy )
By Hadhrat Maseehul Ummat, Maulana Mohammed Maseehullah Khan (RA) Allah Ta’ala says:
“(Say) I seek refuge with the Rabb of the morning from the evil of the haasid (jealous person) when he envies.”
Rasulullah (saws) said: “Do not be jealous among yourselves.”
To be displeased with another’s good position and to wish for its elimination is hasad.
Hasad has three stages.
Generally the basis of hasad is takabbur (pride) and ghuroor (falsehood). Without any valid reason man seeks to withhold the bounties of Allah Ta’ala. He desires (at times consciously and at times subconsciously) that like himself, Allah too should restrict His bounties. Hasad is a malady of the heart. It is harmful to both one’s spiritual life and worldly life. The harm to man’s Deen (spiritual life) is the elimination of his good deeds and he becomes the victim of Allah’s Wrath. Rasulullah (saws) said:
“Jealousy devours good deeds like Fire devours wood.”
The harm to his worldly life (dunyaa) is the frustration and worry which perpetually afflicts the envious person. He is consumed by frustration caused by hasad for another whose disgrace and fall he always anticipates. In this way the haasid destroys his Aakhirat in addition to eliminating his worldly comfort and peace of mind.
THE REMEDY: The disease of hasad is remedied by praising much the person against whom jealousy is directed. Praise him no matter how difficult this may seem. Honour him and meet him with respect and humility.
Jealousy is one of the bad characters of the Satan. It is a must to eradicate. Only then will you be able to follow Allah's characters in you.
Please read from the Quran for jealousy -- Chapter 4, Verse 54 – “ Or do they envy mankind for what Allah hath given them of His bounty? ……. “
Chapter 113, Verse 5 – “ And from the mischief of the envious one as he practices envy. “
therefore, it is quite clear from the Quran that it is bad for Akhirah. Allah also clearly states that if you go against the Quran then hell is definite.
All you should say is mashallah. Like when I see all the Hafez in my area sitting in Hafez class becoming molanas I envy them becoz of the reward they getting but Alhumdulilah I am happy for where I am in my life I am not the most learnt not the most knowledgable I may some knowledge.
