JEALOUSY/ENVY: A MU’MIN (FAITHFUL BELIEVER) IS NOT WITH THIS SICKNESS:
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem:
When a person say: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, he became a Muslim (Believer)!
Religion of Allah is not only to become Muslim , but Islam and it’s knowledge related to five pillars of Islam is a beginning of a life long school to graduate as a “Mumin- “True believer, a faithful one whose heart is attained the pure faith.
Angle Jibreel alaihissalam in the presence of Prophet and Companions (alaihiswalathu wa salam) explains “The Religion of Allah” as Islam,Imaan and Ihsan.
To be in noun- What is it mean to become Muslim, To become Mumin and to become Muhsin
Quran also use the term-Muslim,Mumin, Muhsineen” to explain the different rank of a believer based on his faith and his knowledge about the seen and unseen.
Which is explained in the Quran chapter 2 Al Bakara.
One’s belief is depends on the visions of his eye and his heart!
Quran also says about those whose heart is sealed, so he cannot hear, or see, blind,dumb and deaf (Al Bakara)
So Insha Allah,we explain about Muslim, Mumin and Muhsin with reference to Islam, Iman and Ihsan another time.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the Daybreak (1) From the evil of that which He created; (2) From the evil of the darkness when it is intense, (3) And from the evil of malignant witchcraft, (4) And from the evil of the envier when he envieth. (5)
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 Jealousy .” [Ibn Majah]
At-Tirmidhi narrated from al-Zubayr Ibn al-Awam that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi 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) faithâ€¦” [(Hasan) Jamee at-Tirmidhee (2434)]
JEALOUSY OF WOMEN ON MEN REGARDING POLYGAMY?
QURAN CHAPTER:4 WOMEN:
“Do they envy men for what Allah has given them of His Bounty?” (Sura an-Nisa 4: 54)
Wish and Envy/Jealousy is different!. Wishing is to seek from Allah for the Goodness HE (Allah) gave to others and seek similar goodness from Allah.
Jealousy (envy) is to dislike others getting bounty (favours) which I got or to dislike others getting bounty)favours) which I did not get or will never get!
But “Wish” is to seek same bounty or better bounty(favours) from Allah as HE (Allah) gave to others!
For example: In Salawat Ibrahim (Durood Ibrahim) we ask Allah to give the favour up on Prophet Muhammad and his family as given to Prophet Ibrahim and his family.
A JEALOUS PERSON CANNOT BE A TRUE MUSLIM:
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said : the messenger of Allah said :
“Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; and do not undercut one another, but be you, O servants of Allah, brothers. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail him, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt. Piety is right here-and he pointed to his breast three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. The whole of a Muslim for another Muslim is inviolable: his blood, his property, and his honour.” (Muslim)
On the authority of Abu Muhammad Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Aas, who said : The messenger of Allah, said:
“None of you [truely] believes until his inclination is accordance with what I have brought.” a fine and true hadith which we have transmitted from the book of Hujjah with a sound chain of authorities.
(40 Hadith Qudusi-Imam Nawaw’s Rahmathu Allahi alaihhi)
So it is clear, Foremost Love is to Love Allah and Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam), and if you really love Allah you will follow the command of Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Allah Almighty says, “Say: ‘If you love Allah, then follow me and Allah will love you and forgive you for your wrong actions, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (3:31)
So if you love and follow Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam), you will love His ahlul bayt, love the Muslim leaders and their folk,love your Muslim brothers, love your parents, neighbours etc.
Abu Hurayrah (radhi allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: “By Allah, in Whose Hand is my soul, you will never enter Paradise until you believe. And you will not believe unless you love one another. May I tell you something that if you do, you may love one another? Spread Salaam amongst yourselves.” Ibn Abdul-Barr said: “This proves that Salaam can lift hatred and produce love.” (Saheeh Muslim)
On the authority of Anas bin Malik, the servant of the messenger of Allah, that the prophet said :“None of you [truely] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.”related by Bukhari and Muslim
So don’t fool yourself by saying: “I am a Muslim” for “Name Sake”
You only fool yourself and those who follow you.
Truth has come and false hood has perished (Quran)
Islam is a complete life style of the external (physical) and internal (of the spirit/soul)
When you follow the misguided ones, those ones who are familiar with only external side of humans you are also becoming misguided!
But when you follow Awliya Allah, who have perfect knowledge about both inside and outside of a human being, then you are guided to truth by both purification of body and soul!
Only those who can see your real side (soul/spirit) can cure and help you to purify your heart from all sickness of it!
How do you clean without seeing the dirt?, your ego fools you and the one who knows only from the sources of ego(ears,eyes,skin/nose) is misguided and misguide others too!
