Sheikh Atabek Shukurov


The definition of envy/hasad is to when you want a blessing to be taken from someone but it has to be with the intention. If he rejects it then it is not envy.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Envy devours good actions like fire consumes wood.”

Causes of envy: it brings sins forth, it takes a person towards hell without being tried.

One scholar said that it takes a person away from intercession (of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) on the day of judgement).

Envy returns to the envier in two ways
1. In the world – he is stressed
2. In the afterlife – oppressing someone who will pick up your good deeds

Imam Ghazali (may Allah show him mercy) said, “It is envy, even if you do not act upon it.”

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Do not be envious of one another...” (Muslim)

Envy is the first sin committed on earth by Satan on the sons of Adam ( upon him peace)

The envier goes against Allah (mighty and majestic) on these points
1. His provision
2. Decree
3. The envier is Miserly
4. Undeserving
5. Helps satan

(Allah can give dunya to those he loves and those he does not love. Possessing that which is perishing is not a sign of love!)

Ghibta is a kind of envy in which you want the same as the other person but you do not wish that person to lose his blessing (permissable).

If you want to be like a scholar then is permissible but in worldly matters, to be like someone, is prohibited.
