are more difficult to treat than the diseases and the ailments of the body.
Because they are not easily detectable.
So they're not easily curable.
And because they are the source and the origin of the actions of the body,
any ailment any disease in the heart,
affects the entire human
and not vice versa.
And among the major diseases of the heart that we want to talk about today, a lot from reading.
One may wonder
how dangerous is hazard
for how many of us have felt it?
How many of us indeed, actually have felt at one point or more in their lives, this envy that bites their heart when they see someone else having what they don't have.
And they begin to feel anger and resentment, sadness
in addition to many other evil thoughts, how many of us actually have felt that many, if not all of us, and not once or twice, with many times,
and it goes untreated, until it festers and grows.
And let me share with you the outcome of hazard, the danger of hazard and why it should be treated as soon as it is detected.
Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the people of the book and he says big semester OBE and foosball
and yet for Ruby madonsela
Bahia and Eunice de la la hemmingford Leigh Allen and share a birdie Alameda a birdie Ferber ob la bobbin aloha Doublelift cafe de nada booboo when he says evil is the thing that they sold themselves for.
They sold themselves for something.
What did they do?
They disbelieved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa he was
a yak for Ruby manzanilla. So they believe this believed in what Allah had revealed. What is the reason Bahia?
Bahia is transgression,
aggression, and ethelbert he says both he and I hazard it says bellion means hazard out of envy. Out of envy unit zero means that Allah would give from his favor, apart from every he wishes from his servants and his slaves. So they earned anger upon anger.
They used to say as a topper he narrates all the prophets of Allah came from the children of Benny Salatin from the children of Israel in alleys Salaam. How come this man had come from the children of Israel
will not follow him.
It's not that they did not know the truth. They knew the truth. But when they saw that he had gardens
Something that they did not have. He belonged to a people but it's not their people. They just believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala
then Allah conclude and he says, Well, he Katharina they will have a humiliating punishment. If Lucas theatre says, He said humiliating punishment because envy are the origin or the source of envy is pride.
That is why they're envious because they're proud of themselves. That's why Allah treats them with the opposite of their reality or the opposite of their intention. He humiliates them because they think that they are proud and that is the punishment of the proud and the arrogant.
And not only did they reject the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when the message itself came to them from their own prophets, they disagreed for against each other. Because of envy, the same word bahaya can Nestle omega wahida for but as a la una de Anima sharena among very
key turbobit hockey jacobina Sufi Master foofy woman telegraphy Illa de novo Hummingbird energy.
He says and I will summarize the meaning. He says to panel wattana the people they will one nation on Islam then they divided Sherpa was introduced this belief in Allah was introduced to Allah sent to the prophets, and he revealed within the book, so it would be a judge among people it would be a judge over people.
But they disagreed after the book had been revealed to them after the bayonet and the bayonet is what what is being
brought in is clear.
Enough, not only proofs, clear proofs had come to them. But they disagreed out of busy out of Hazzard among each other. In the Tafseer. It says that they wanted authority for themselves in their religion, they wanted authority for themselves. They wanted reputation for themselves, they wanted the dounia for themselves because of that they fought against each other, and they put the religion aside and they changed it.
So envy could lead to disbelief in Allah subhanho wa Taala, even though you know the truth, you can come to a person or a person can come to you and tell you, brother, this is the truth. This is the evidence, but you don't want it. You don't want it to come from him. Not from that person, not from that group, not from this particular
individual. So you reject it. You know, it's the truth, but am I going to humiliate myself in front of him and tell him that I was wrong, and that he was right or that they are wrong? Or that we are wrong and they are right, will never happen? That's what happened with the Jews when the messenger sallallahu alayhi. wasallam. came to them.
As when one of their leaders came back after he saw the Prophet Saloni we send them and that leader who was waiting he said a hula hula?
Is it him? Because they were waiting for him? Is it him? Is it him?
And he says now, he says yes. So they know. He says so what is your plan?
What are you going to do? by law to whomever He says his animosity and hatred as long as I live.
So he knows he's coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala, but he's not going to follow
And so you find that Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah in the Quran directs the believers, and more than one place,
directs them, instead of envy of each other, instead of looking at the other person to seek another route.
See here as an example, where Allah Subhana Allah says, one at a time and Noma
boo minmatar seven, West LA hemmingford Lee, in Omaha, Canada.
He says, do not wish for what Allah had favored some of you with over others.
Men have a portion of what they have earned, and women have a portion of what they have earned. And ask Allah from his favors. That's the medicine and ask Allah from his favors. Indeed, Allah is well aware heavens has knowledge of everything. If you go to the Tafseer, they said, as a background to this and Allah knows best. Then the woman said,
the men fight for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And they have more rights in inheritance. And we don't have that Allah subhanaw taala revealed this,
or another version of it,
where the men said, we hope that as we have been favored above them, with inheritance, with jihad, that we'd be favored upon them in heaven. So we'd get doubled the reward
Compared to them, the woman used to say or said, we hope as they have been favored with double the inheritance, they would also bear on their shoulders double listen when they commit this sin.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala told them one do not look at each other.
do not wish for what I've given this or what I've given that
each person each gender, if they obey Allah subhana wa Tada, you will have the equal route.
You will have a portion of what you've done and you will have a portion of what you've done. And now the medicine instead of looking at another person was Allah hemmingford Lee, Allah from his favors, where are you? Are you comparing yourself to another person
and trying to take what he has the nose of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the geese of Paradise are well open. ask Allah He will give you, you don't need to compete. It's not only $1 million that a person has. It's not only one good education that a person has and that is not available to anyone else. Allah subhana wa tada has the heavens and the earth in his hand. Go ask him, and Allah will give you
and the Prophet Sall Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam mourn this about this disease. He said, The la comida aluminum in public and has a double Baba. He says the disease of the nations before you had crept into you had found its place among you has said, then V and Baba and hatred.
So it's a disease of the formulations. And he sets a lot who it was centimeter it has found its place among you.
he says. And indeed, it's the shaver. I do not say that it shaves the hair, it changed the religion.
If you want to understand how serious it is, it shaves the religion. And once you allow envy to go in, hatred follows immediately.
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says,
and this is a important example that he had given. He says it shaves the religion completely.
Because it breaks the bonds between people. Between a brother and a sister how many families do you know you have heard about that have broken and severed their ties because of envy?
How many brothers in Allah or sisters in law who have separated because of envy, how many Muslim groups and organizations that have gone their separate ways and are fighting against each other because of envy and the shaitaan is devious. shaitan will come to the knowledgeable person to the pious person to the Dahlia I'll try to convince him that you're doing this for the sake of Allah is for for his own reasons. They'll twist it or you're speaking against him for the sake of Allah it's envy. It's envy you don't want his well being your you hate him or you're angry with him or you want him to fall down. That's why you speak against him. That's why you criticize him.
So if we allow it to take place, it will shave the religion completely. We will reject the truth. We will hate each other. Then we will go into fighting each other and shedding each other's blood
and nothing will be left.
And that is why it's very serious.
And that is why it should be treated.
And that is why also Allah subhanho wa Taala told His Prophet sallallahu wasallam we were on we are His followers.
He says that
has an ally him walking me. He says do not extend your eye at what we have given pairs of them. As for live enjoyment.
Do not look at their worldly possessions and reputation and status and what have you. And it's not only looking nothing It says let them dinner is not lafonda say if you just look casually without desire that is not if you met that
you have extended your eye and looked at it with desire inside for what they have. He says do not look at what they have.
Do not look at what they have. And Previous to that loss is what occurred at the inner castle
with giving you the soft the seven after fear repeated. Versus is and the grades are on Do not talk.
This is sufficient for you don't look at what they have.
That is he is saying him
Telling him sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam. What you have is better than that. What you have is sufficient for you. And if you look at what they have, you will waste what Allah has given you.
Nothing will deny
him virgin min Hamza hotel hieratic. Dunya Tina houfy. In the other area, we've given them that enjoyment for a reason, Lena Steena home so that we tempt them in it, because of it. So we're going to look at their source source of temptation, their source of misery and wish for it and desire it. Look at what Allah has given you. So you see how Allah subhanaw taala is even directing your site, your actual site, what you're looking at,
what is called a higher up call and the sustenance and revision, the provisions of your Lord are better and long lasting. Well, what Allah, Allah and command your family of prayer, or obey the law when it's reported about him that when he used to receive news of rulers and rich people, he would go back to his home, because what is their News, the news of the on this and they have that this million that vehicle missed and that he would go back to his house, recite this verse and involve himself in Salah. He would implement that I Exactly. So that he would return himself and return his mind and consciousness to the state that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants it to be in not a state of
hazard. Okay? Are you allowed to look at another person and have hazard of him the hazard the indefinite thing, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam limited to two things, there is no hazard, except in two things are known as
a man or a person who had given him the option and he recites it during the day and during the night. what are known as the hula hoop,
another home Allah has given him money, wealth, and he spends from it for the sake of Allah in the morning and in the evening.
As if the profits of
me saying do not look at anything else, don't care about what he has or he doesn't have what he has accomplished or he did not accomplish. But I allow you to look at two things.
Look at someone whom Allah had given the Quran to
and he's reading it not only the Quran, not only that he had memorized the Koran, but he's reading it. He's following it another Hadith close is called and hikma definitely be how will you eliminate judges by it? And he teaches it. When you look at him, say yeah, they tell him Islam, OTF Allah, I wish that I have as much as he has, without wishing that would go away from him. That is the difference. They call that the crypto
without wishing that he would be deprived of the arm that he would forget it. That Yeah, that he would go after his mistakes, that you would find the mistake that you would broadcast his mistake. Not none of that. But you look at him and say, I wish that Allah would give me the same thing as that man and another man, he has money.
But having money by itself is not worth of envy.
doesn't deserve envy doesn't deserve your eyes. Unless he does something with this wealth, he spends it for the sake of Allah, day and night. Then you look at him and you say I wish I have as much money as he has. So I can spend as he is spending so I can spend as he is spending that is a good intention. And that is the only allowed envy

no discussion of envy would be complete
how to protect yourself from envy.
Because you can be the envy or the envious.
So if someone envies you,
how can you protect yourself from it? Well, first of all, envy hazard or more, particularly la
is the reality and it has an effect. And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, instead need to be near him in a line in line.
He says seek Allah's refuge from an iron from envy. And this is a particular form of hazard. This is envy. When a person sees you with his eye, this is an i in Arabic.
So we seek Allah's refuge from Allah and for indeed it is true.
And there is an incident at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to tell you that it is true, and then to tell you how to treat
it when it happens.
So today, I
was with the prophets of Allah when he was in them and other companions and maybe on an expedition, he was bathing. Then I saw him bathing, and he saw his some of his body,
some of his body. So he says Marina, moon, the moon, Julian when
he says we have not seen until today, something better than this skin, even the skin of a woman that is well protected,
that he's looked at. And he said, he has a beautiful skin better than the skin of woman
for Norbit. fossorial.
He felt ill immediately.
And he felt immediately. So they carried him to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa he was in them. And they said, O Messenger of Allah, this and this happened to him. He says that the homeowner, is do you suspect someone? This is not to be acid, this thing that he said, Bring him they brought him color for who? He was angry with him.
He says, why would one of you kill his brother? Won't you ask a lot? Why didn't you ask Allah to bless him?
Do it with Baraka. There's how you protect if you are with one who's saying or admiring something. That's that's how you protect the other person from envy or yourself as
an actor and he
then he had asked him to make will do wash his hands, wash his face, I'm the one who envied sir, make will do. wash his face, wash his elbows, wash his knees, wash his feet, wash the inner part of his lower garment that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam commanded them to take this warm water and pour out upon sand, anything.
And then he was cured immediately. And he stood up and he walked with Him.
How do you protect yourself from it? Well, first of all, and we'll come back to this honey First of all, before it happens with the Oscar in the morning, and in the evening, we'll call with Dr. Bill Fennec. And the Indian woman she has it in either hassane and from the evil of an envy, envy, envious person when he envies so if you continue to say this morning and evening before us and before you sleep, Allah Subhana Allah will protect you from it. If not, then you will find yourself naked. And when that envious person sends that envy at you, you're defenseless. And by the will of Allah Subhana. Allah, you may fall ill
in the liner as the prophets Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
He says that I would indeed put the man in the grave, and the camel in the pot.
And there are some people are known for being very good, envious people. If he's hungry, he lifts his tent, and he looks outside and he sees a camel passing by. He says, What a beautiful candle that says, and he closes the door, and he tells his servant, after an hour, go get us some of his meat. And if I'm fine, and after an hour, there are people who are truly envious. So if you want to protect yourself from it before it happens, then this thing as and asking Allah subhana wa dallah for protection. Once it hits you, how can you protect yourself from it by what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, if you know the person, you go to him and you ask him wash and take
his water and pour it upon yourself and make it and he has to?
Prophet says what it is to see. And if you are asked to bait bait,
because it could cure your brother, it could cure your sister, you may not know that you've envied him, do it. So it's a must.
But if you fear that he or she is not going to listen,
or you just suspect it and you're afraid that if it turns out to be wrong, then it's going to break family relations and you don't want to get into that. They say take something from history, something that he or she has touched
cloth, their clothing, or maybe a glass or what have you. If it's a glass or an object like that. They say wipe it
With a clothing, then take it and soak it in water and then do the same thing make will do with it and pour it upon yourself. And if he or she is the one who envied you will be cured by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and obviously keep making. No, we're not asking that we become paranoid whenever something happens. It's envy, it's envy, envy, and the same time, there is no reasonable explanation for your ailment for your disease for what is happening to you. Then consider that it may be envy and seek
the cure from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
How else can you protect yourself from envy?
The problem Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says is that you know Allah, Allah.
He says seek the success of your affairs by concealing them for indeed everyone who is favored is envy.
So if you don't have to share it, or if this person is an envious person, or a person who dislikes you don't share your good news with her.
Right hide it from him. If it's a person who loves you, that's fine inshallah.
Another thing, either arducam minasi. Amina II
know you Jeeva for Newberry County, alphanumeric now often
he said earlier it was in them if you see from yourself
or from your brother, or from his wealth and money, what you admire and what you like, ask Allah to bless it.
If you do that, by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala there will be no envy. So it is possible that you envy yourself to best so whenever you see something like this Samia Allah bless it barakallahu li garlic Allahu Allah and what have you.
And let us now conclude by going back to the danger of
they say that the envious person is the enemy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the enemy of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala interferon portobay iterates, or reports that it is said, envy is the first sin in the heaven. And the first thing on earth, the first sin Would you please saw Adam and how Allah favored him and he envied him. And the first thing on this earth when the child of Adam looked at his brother, and envied him,
is the source of the two crimes. And he says, The envious person accuses his Lord of bad judgment, and then distribution and Hill information, because he's telling him You don't know how to give, I deserve it more than him. And if he believes that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only knowledgeable then Allah knows precisely what is good for you and what is bad and what is good for him and what is bad. So when you're asking Allah subhana wa tada to reconsider, or that Allah subhanho wa Taala is unjust, you're in that sense in any move Allah subhanho wa Taala and add to it, the constant misery and sadness you'll be in whenever you see someone having a good time. You're sad. Whenever you see
them have accomplished something, you're sad, you're miserable, you don't want it. And if you feel that when they go through some hardship, you feel joy in your heart, know that you have some of that. Because you don't want them to be better than you. You want them to be less. So when there's a disaster and affliction in the family are happy,
you will seek Allah's refuge from that and if you find it in your heart, immediately make dua for them a lengthy a lengthy to ask for them. And then the shaytaan By the will of Allah subhana wa tada and his help on run away from you. He says, He will say whenever I try to trap him with envy is making up for that person. Well, let me stop for some time.
And we conclude by Hadeeth of the messenger.
When they asked jasola human haleness particle can be mahamuni sense. They said oh prophet of Allah, Who is the best of people. He said, The one who has a cleansed heart and a truth for time. They said, Oh prophet of Allah, we know the one who has a truthful tongue. We know the meaning of this. What is alcohol boohoo? He says, attacking you. Nothing led nothing, nothing he has said.
He says I'll call Boone mahone. The heart that is claimed is the pure purified that has no sin in it, no hatred in it, and no has said.
And actually there's one more Hadees and it's good that we can find with it in sha Allah. He said sal Allahu Allahu Allah was in them. Three things that will not unite and be together and listen to our attention on three things that will not unite and be together a Muslim who had killed the Kapha and then after that was upright, they will not be together in hellfire.
Muslim or kill the Kaffir in Jihad for unethical or legitimate Jihad for the sake of Allah and the nice upright after that they will not be together in hellfire.
And a person, Oberon, thi, sebelah, offical Johanna and then the dust from the battle from a battle in Jihad for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada and the smell of Paradise, even the smell of Paradise, they will not gather inside the Muslim world ah to me and if you've called the moment an email, what has it and they will not be together in the heart of an email that has said, so you see how they're opposites. No more has to do you have a list email, and the more email the less hassle and it could be that you have so much hassle there is no email anymore. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to protect us from envy. While I protect us from envying people and from being
envied, Allah protect us from envying people and from being envied. Allah protect us from envying people and from being envied by law protect us protect our families from envy. While I protect the Muslims from envy, while la Unitas upon the truth. Will Allah make the truth clear to us and May Allah help us to follow it? While I make the truth clear to us and help us to follow it will not make the truth clear to us and help us to follow it. And Allah make falsehood clear to us and help us to avoid it will not make falsehood clear to us and help us to avoid it will make a falsehood clear to us and help us to avoid it while I fill our hearts with your love and fill our hearts with
your feed. Well I'll make all our make your love in our hearts above and above and more everything else. I'll make your heart in our hearts more than anything else. I'll make your love in our hearts more than anything else. While we ask you that you unite the Muslims upon your book, and the sooner of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that you unite them against their enemy. While we ask you that you feed their hungry, or Allah feed their hungry or live feed. They're hungry or lucky or they're sick while lacking victory to the repressed or lagging victory to the oppressed. While I give victory to the repressed Allah, we ask you that you take care of those who are oppressing the
Muslims. While I take care of those who are oppressing the Muslims. Will Allah take care of those who are repressing the Muslims?
