|Subject : Jealousy (Hasad) is a disease
Jealousy (Hasad) is a disease of the heart. It is, perhaps, one of the oldest problems of human beings. Some Islamic scholars say that this is the first sin that was committed. When Allah said to the angels to bow down to Adam, Iblis refused to bow because he was jealous of the honor that Allah gave to Adam. Jealousy: There is no jealousy in Islam except for giving charity and seeking knowledge.
Hasad (jealousy and envy) 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. 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.”
Hazrat Imam al Naqi (AS ) has said:
"A jealous person does more harm to himself than to others". Jealousy is in fact a sign of a number of deficiencies and diseases viza) A jealous person is selfish and wants everything for himself to the exclusion of others.
If you feel that you are jealous of a specific person, then buy him a gift and shake hands with him. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Shake hands, for this will dispel rancour, and exchange gifts and love one another, for this will dispel hatred
During the month of RAJAB, SHABAN & RAMZAN one make good efforts to get rid of this evil sin cum disease which is called JEALOUSY, Jealousy eats good deeds, like fire consumes wood. Those who want to keep un-destroy their GOOD deeds than avoid Jealousy.
