Hasad (envy and ill-feeling) towards a Muslim brother or sister is a real disease of the heart. Its dangers?
Beware, save yourselves from Hasad. Verily Hasad devours virtuous deeds just as fire devours wood.
Imagine BURNING your hard-earned good deeds just by having envy and ill-feeling in the heart! Just by harboring hasad in the heart, you’re losing your good deeds as quickly as a fire consumes wood…each and every second!! May Allah save us from this, ameen!
