Between his and her heart so that they don't envy others.

00:00:05--> 00:00:12

And it's not really only about me inflicting harm on another person when I see them having something beautiful.

00:00:14--> 00:00:41

It's about what it does to me, first of all. So the first sin that was committed is when a bliss looked at Adam Alayhis Salam and envied him for the fevers that Allah had given to him. And I want you to understand what has an kibel Arrogance did to a bliss, because we each one of us is not immune from that as you will see. He was worshipping with the angels and the bliss from source from the jinn.

00:00:43--> 00:00:46

He had access to the higher realms.

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

He could speak to Allah azza wa jal directly and here Allah back.

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

And because of envy,

00:00:56--> 00:01:01

and jealousy, he was kicked out of heavens and was doomed

00:01:03--> 00:01:21

to hellfire and because of envy, he had vowed to misguide the Children of Adam till the Day of Judgment. So it's not enough that he rejected directly Allah's command. He said, If I'm sinking, everybody else will sync with me. And that is the fire of jealousy.

00:01:23--> 00:01:52

On Earth. The do children of Adam and Eve sit down when they submitted a whole ban, an offering for two who beat Amina hottie Hema muta. cobalamin had to learn that one of them his offering was accepted. The other saw than mine was rejected, rather than go back to himself and accuse it and say, why is it that I wasn't sincere enough? What did he say I'm gonna kill you.

00:01:53--> 00:02:03

Because you got what I did not have and this I want you to understand is a consequence of jealousy. It doesn't stop at what you feel. He said, I'm gonna kill you.

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

has at least to murder and killing.

00:02:09--> 00:02:29

I'm gonna kill you. And his pious brother said what? Allah in the murder, Ebola hominid mortality. Allah only accepts from the pious meaning in other words, if you see me having something that you don't have vi see you having something that I don't have. Why should I be angry with you?

00:02:30--> 00:02:54

Think about it that sync? Why should I be angry with you? Allah accepts from the pious, you want the same thing that I have? Be pious like me. That's the path to it. Killing Me will bring you no joy, and no comfort, except it will add to your sin. And what is he? What did he do? As you all well know, he killed his brother.

00:02:56--> 00:03:10

And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that every person who was killed on this earth unjustly, a portion of that sin will go to the first son of Adam who killed his brother, because He's the first person to introduce murder on Earth.

00:03:13--> 00:03:18

jealousy and envy, linked to that disasterous consequence.

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

The brothers of Yusuf Ali's said and what did they do to him?

00:03:26--> 00:03:57

They committed such great injustice towards his their brother and their father. They faked his death, they vanished with their brother, they don't know what is going to happen to him. And in fact, in the beginning, they wanted to kill him. That was the proposal. But they said let's just punish him, and they did not know where he will end how he will be treated such cold, cruel hearts. How could you treat your brother like that? And your elderly father like this? What is the thing that agitated the hoarder turned it against your own family?

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

Envy again.

00:04:02--> 00:04:06

And when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam King,

00:04:07--> 00:04:21

some of the people of the book and some of the polytheists and Metka they rejected the message of Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why out of what and V and nothing else?

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

And he says subhanho wa Taala

00:04:27--> 00:05:00

what the cathedral Mina Helene kita Villa we are who do not come in via the email and he can Kufa hazard a mean idea and force him in Madama Tatiana, who would have it says many of the people of the book would want to turn you as to your belief into disbelievers. Why laws of Justice has said that out of envy from themselves after the new when the truth is so here, the issue is not ignorance. They know very well that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the prophet of Allah, and they know that the believers are foul

00:05:00--> 00:05:22

along the path of Allah Otto did and yet what did they want? They want to turn all the believers into disbelief. Why? out of envy, why should they get it and not us? Why should Muhammad sallahu Allah your sin and be a prophet and not one of us because of envy, they reject the message of Islam. And yesterday when a nurse Allah, Allah whom in fugly as he says, subhanho wa Taala in another area.

00:05:25--> 00:05:43

To the extent he said, You know what, I will give tilaka hoot why Upolu Delila, Dina Cafaro, how old I mean under the ammonoosuc vida, out of envy, they hit the truth so much that the non believers of Metka they would go to the people of the book, and they would say to them,

00:05:44--> 00:05:55

you have messages from Allah azza wa jal previously, Muhammad Ali, his Salatu was Salam, this man, Is he better or are we,

00:05:56--> 00:06:06

out of envy, they will tell them you are better than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the you know, the polytheism that the practice, but it's all out of envy.

00:06:07--> 00:06:11

And that as we said, the disbelievers of Metka

00:06:13--> 00:06:30

will call you will hola on Zillow and Quran Allah Julie mineral Korea Tina Ali. It says why hasn't this Quran been revealed on one of the on a great man from the two cities great cities of Mecca and of PA ye Mohamed Salah Allah Allah yo Sydenham, why him

00:06:31--> 00:07:15

and they knew the virtue of Muhammad and the character of Muhammad, but they were just offering excuses. And then Allah as it will says, a home yatse Munna Ramadan big are they the ones who divide the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal and of His favors. And this is where Allah azza wa jal is not only he's talking to them, but he's talking to us as well. When you envy someone for whatever reason, Allah is saying, Are you the one in charge of dispensing Allah's mercy and His favors? No person No, but you know who may shut down Phil higher did dunya or of Anna Barbone poco Belinda Raja at Ilya Takeda ba boom Bogdan Supriya, Warahmatullah Becca Hi Roman Maya G Marone. It says we are the one

00:07:15--> 00:07:47

who dispensed wordly favors among them and we raise some of them above others, so that they will be in need of each other. And then he says and the mercy of Allah is better than what they collect, meaning that look at each other. Some of us are rich and some of us are not. Some of us are healthy and some of us are not. Some of us are tall and thin and some of us are not some of us enhancing some of our are not. So Allah as God is saying, Who is the one who divided it this way?

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

Think about it.

00:07:51--> 00:08:16

Allah azza wa jal did. And he varied this so that you would need each other and you would thank Allah azza wa jal for the favors of Allah, Who will you see it? And you would have compassion towards each other? There is wisdom behind it. And then Allah Azza will redirect you from the dunya to the RPL. And he says, but the Rama of Allah azza wa jal is better than the worldly things that you're envious about.

00:08:18--> 00:08:28

is better than the money that you think so and so has but you don't have? Where does envy come from? But why do our word we envious of each other?

00:08:29--> 00:08:51

It stems first of all, from a displeasure with a decrease of Allah azza wa jal that when you think about it, if someone is famous, and you're not someone who's successful and you're not, when you object to it, to whom and to what are you objecting, except first of all, to Allah azza wa jal, the Almighty,

00:08:52--> 00:09:08

to his wisdom and his power, thinking that you could do things better, and Allah has voted is telling you, this is how I divided it. Can we dare go back to Allah azza wa jal and say you are unfair.

00:09:10--> 00:09:15

I have to have more, and the other person has to have less.

00:09:17--> 00:09:39

Isn't this all a test from Allah azza wa jal, what you have and what you do not have. Don't we also understand that the dunya that is given to some and denied to others, that that in itself is a test. And that in itself could be a source of catastrophe. If not thanked or used? Well, you could look at someone who's famous

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

and say, I wish I could be as famous as he is.

00:09:45--> 00:09:51

And that is very short sighted because you don't know if that fame is taking that person to heaven or hell.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

Right or wrong.

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

I wish I could be rich. How do you know that that person is going to end

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Up in heaven with all the money that he has,

00:10:03--> 00:10:09

or the Allah if he were to give you that money. You would disbelieve, how do you know?

00:10:12--> 00:10:17

Do you think Allah azza wa jal gives, or does not give without thought,

00:10:19--> 00:10:24

without wisdom, without a plan, without wanting the best for you.

00:10:25--> 00:10:36

So it really stands in the beginning, from what from not trusting Allah subhanho wa taala. Another again, second thing not being happy with what you already have.

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

And if you and I,

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

if we fail to think the little that we have, how can you think when Allah gives you more?

00:10:50--> 00:10:58

So if Allah gives you $100 Today, and you fail to thank $100? How could you think 1000

00:10:59--> 00:11:14

Because the more that Allah gives you, the more that is going to distract you. Right? Ask those who are rich, ask those who are famous, ask those who are athletic, what is consuming their time, the accurate the next life or the dunya.

00:11:15--> 00:11:15

On average.

00:11:17--> 00:11:39

So the more that Allah is gonna give you, the more that that is going to distract you. So if if the for the little that you have, you're unwilling, unable incapable of thanking Allah, how will you thank him when he gives you more, so sometimes Allah tells you, I'll give you what you can manage. Exactly, when Allah tells you, I will not put our honor on you or burden more than when you can carry

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

your gun, I'm going to be sicker than what you can handle.

00:11:44--> 00:11:58

I'm not going to afflict you with something that you cannot take. With that in mind, Allah also tells you, I'm not going to give you more than what you can handle when it comes to riches and fame and health and what have you. Because if I give it to you, it corrupts you.

00:11:59--> 00:12:04

So why should you look at somebody else and compare yourself to Him and you're not him?

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

Why should you look at what they have and say I want what they have good, that thing could be very bad for you.

00:12:13--> 00:12:17

Also, it stems from loving the dunya

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

and ignoring the Apphia.

00:12:24--> 00:12:29

You're not envious of anyone, typically. Unless it's about the dunya.

00:12:31--> 00:12:45

So and so is Richard so and so has kids, his kids are successful, is businesses successful. Most of our envy comes about the dunya and the dunya in the sight of Allah azza wa jal is less than a mosquitoes when

00:12:46--> 00:13:23

is less than the mosquitoes when it is very relevant to Allah and it's irrelevant to Rasul Allah. He saw Allahu Allah He was in them. And to that he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam, la hacer the ELAC is nothing. There should be no envy accepting two things. Or two Luneta Hula, hula Quran. What are two don't matter? Hula, hula and for Hawaiian people? Oh, come on club. It says only two kinds of people can be envied. And that type of envy is not a vicious envy. It's an envy when you look at them and you say I wish I will have what they have without diminishing anything that they have

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

two things, someone who has given knowledge or when given the Quran and he's teaching it

00:13:31--> 00:13:45

and some of them Allah had made rich but it doesn't stop there. Allah has made him rich and he spends that money for Allah sake. These are the two things and these are the two people that you can look at and say, I want to be like them.

00:13:48--> 00:13:55

Anyone else or anything else? He said no envy. Don't look don't wish

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

because everything else is dunya

00:14:00--> 00:14:07

and everything else parishes and you should not want to compete for the sake of the dunya

00:14:09--> 00:14:15

he says SubhanaHu wa ala Wallah determined Noma football Allah who will be here Baba come Allah

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

do not wish what Allah had favorite some of you over others

00:14:22--> 00:14:22

don't look

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

and included in this iron men looking at women or woman looking at men and say they have what we do not have.

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

No Allah has blessed each he says,

00:14:34--> 00:14:56

concern yourself with Allah had given you and don't compare yourself with others don't look at what they have don't wish for for what they have. So what happens if inadvertently, unavoidably I noticed that they have something that I don't and I feel that bitterness on the inside that emptiness on the inside? What do I do?

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

What is Allah say? What's Allah? I mean totally

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

Ask Allah from his fever.

00:15:03--> 00:15:16

You don't need to hate someone so because what they have, you don't need to win. Do you see them happy with their family and their spouse wish them destruction and dissolution of family just because you feel bitter.

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

By the way, feeling bitter is natural.

00:15:20--> 00:16:07

It's absolutely natural. I'm not successful or not as successful. I'm not I don't feel happy. I'm not as happy feeling bitter, is natural. And the shaytaan will take advantage of it and make you hate everybody including yourself if you surrender to env but why should you? You see them having something that you don't the easiest thing and the coolest thing upon the heart for you to say what you Allah bless them with what they have. And grant me similar things if it's good for me. Yeah, Allah grant me similar things. If it's good for me, you turn those negative, bitter feelings into a DUA. And once you ask Allah azza wa jal as he said what Allah has been fully expect the best from

00:16:07--> 00:16:54

him. subhanho wa taala. So you don't need to wish ill for anybody. You no need to be competing with them. He said on a Salatu was Salam in a hadith, Latin alpha. So while at the hacer do what Tada baru do not compete with each other, do not envy each other and do not boycott each other because it's a chain. If you compete for the dunya you will be envious. And if you're envious, you will boycott each other and plot against each other. So he said don't compete for the dunya and if somebody has a question about excellence, how do we achieve excellence in the dunya if we do not compete, he says Muslims do not compete for glory or for money. Muslims compete in the dunya to

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

please Allah azza wa jal and help people.

00:16:57--> 00:17:17

So you can excel in the dunya but the motivation is very different than the capitalist motivate motivation. It's not about you. It's not about me, it's not about money. It's about helping everybody that you see and above all of that it's about pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah protect us from envy or hopefully her the worst for Allah do you want to go?

00:17:34--> 00:17:43

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Hamdan, cathedra and even Mubarak and fee. Also Li was salam ala Rasulillah, Muhammad Ali, he wasn't happy he was setting them.

00:17:44--> 00:18:03

As a consequence of envy, a person could either they receive it, there was something specifically called a lying on hazard is a more general inclusive name of it, where a person could be envious of things that they see and things that they hear about. A lion specifically is to be envious of something that you see.

00:18:04--> 00:18:27

And that could adversely affect the person who receives it by the will of Allah azza wa jal and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to our do bIllahi min a lion seek Allah's refuge and protection from a lion because it is true. And if there is something whatever it compete with Allah as destiny, it would be alive, which is the evil eye. We could translate that.

00:18:28--> 00:19:13

If anything could compete with Allah's destiny, meaning it is so potent, it is so strong, that he said so Allah audio cinnamon, another Hadith that a person could climb a mountain and fall because of envy. Or a camel could be walking and be cooked and killed because of envy. someone looks at it, admires it. And either they wish for it to perish to fit to fail, or simply simply they admire it without mentioning Allah's Name and asked him for Baraka. And that happened and the term of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would it was once a Sahabi. And another passed by and he saw him and he saw his skin and he admired his skin, he admired his body, and that other Sahaba who was

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

envied felt immediately ill

00:19:16--> 00:19:56

and they went to the prophets of Allah, Allah He was sent them and they said, no prophet of Allah, this happened to so and so all of a sudden, he says, Do accuse someone do you suspect someone they said so and so said this, and once he said it, that person fell ill? And he said to me, his Salatu was Salam ala Am I have to do I had to come? Why would any one of you kill his brother like that? Either item in Africa Yoji Buka. Allah who will Baraka if you see something that you admire, from your brother, ask Allah to bless it. Ask Allah to bless him meaning yalla Baddeck I need Baddeck Annie so the prophets Allah Allah wa salam commanded that that person who envied wash his hand, wash

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

his face, wash his hand to the elbows, watch his knees, feet

00:20:00--> 00:20:20

And then his lower garment. And they took that water they poured it on that man who was envied, and Allah as they're going to remove that affliction immediately. And that is a way of treating envy from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is immediate once a person suspects or knows that so and so is responsible for it.

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

And you could actually,

00:20:24--> 00:20:27

you could actually cause your own

00:20:28--> 00:21:12

affliction. When you look at yourself or something that you love, you don't wish them harm, you just admire, but you don't say Baraka. That's why he said, Sal, Allahu Allah wa salam. He says, if you look at yourself, your children and your money, and you admire what you see, as for baraka for it, otherwise there is that possibility that you could hit, what the ones that you love with your own eyes. So if you look at yourself in the mirror, you look at your children, you look at your spouse, you look at your house, and you admire what you see, don't stop there. What you do is say, God, Allah, Allahu Allah, Ya Allah bless it and make that a habit that whatever you see, that pleases you

00:21:12--> 00:21:23

from yourself and others, so that you protect yourself and then from NVC, Varrick Allahu Baraka, lofi May Allah bless that. May Allah bless this.

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

Now how do you protect yourself from it?

00:21:27--> 00:21:54

He said, Sal, Allahu Allah, he was hilum in a hadith, thou will do bIllahi min an iron, right? seek Allah's protection from it. He went he once saw a woman, a young woman, a girl, and there was discoloration on her face, he says what is with her face? There is no bra. Right? There is a look, that evil look and that evil look could come from humans and it can also come from the jinn.

00:21:55--> 00:22:06

He said also, he saw some young boys and he said to those young boys, why do I see them thin and sickly? So their mothers said they're easily envied. He says make give them Rukia.

00:22:07--> 00:22:51

So you want to involve yourself, surround yourself with a Rukia to protect yourself from envy. And to do that continuously and the best rakia that we have is full of Allahu Ahad Koolau. The gerbil fella pulled out a pair of bananas and you keep repeating that. So you say it in the evening, you say it in the morning, you say it before you sleep and wipe it over all over your body, and you say it after each salah. And if you are a person who had been afflicted with envy in particular and you feel it or you suspect it, use Rukia on yourself, read Quran, wipe it all over your body and keep doing that. If it is really serious. If it's really serious, you could seek out the

00:22:52--> 00:23:36

someone who reads the Quran and he has experienced in it but make sure that when you are seeking or after you're seeking someone who is recommended, highly trusted follows the Quran and Sunnah. And is not suspicious in any way not anyone who claims to be a raw thing is a legitimate person. So if you go to someone, and they start asking you for weird things like give me your middle name, or your mother's name or your mother's maiden name, or bring me this trace of this or trace of that tells me when you were born information that no one needs for a Rokia when they asked for things like that, run away from them, run away from them. The only thing that you need for a rakia is for a person to

00:23:36--> 00:24:03

sit and read the Quran. No information on your behalf is needed. So make very sure that if you want to go to someone who's going to read the rakia, don't pick them from the internet. Don't just go by somebody's recommendation. Go to your masjid and ask for someone who can be trusted because you're dealing with something that is serious. But if you don't need that, keep yourself and your children

00:24:04--> 00:24:49

protected with rope here if you have young children Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say to Al Hasan what you're saying, What are you do Kuma became Atilla he made coalition data and in Wareham women could lie in learn this, or similar to us, or at least them what are we that and day and night. protect your children from the aim. And most importantly, as we conclude, but it's also been not those who envy but those who submit to Allah azza wa jal on the outside, we could be very nice on the inside. Our hearts could be boiling with envy, wishing ill for everybody that we see. So remove that bitterness. Be happy with what Allah had destined for you and me and ask Allah as it

00:24:49--> 00:25:00

will continuously to keep blessing you and your family. If you find that you have something or you don't have something as Allah azza wa jal to give you Allah is the best of give

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

urs Allah azza wa jal is the best of takers to ask Allah Allah but Allah Amenia Allah cleanse our heart from envy and cleanse our hearts. bodies from envy.
