In verse number? 54 of Surah Nisa, Allah speaks about jealousy and what it does. Don't allow yourself to be jealous of others. thank Allah for bestowing upon others his favor. The most you could do is to ask Allah to give you a similar favor, but never ask Allah to extinguish a favor. He's given someone else just because you want it. That's not fair. That will bring about a crisis that you wouldn't have imagined. Subhana Allah so Allah is telling you don't be jealous of others.

Who gave them? Allah gave them by you being jealous you automatically become become unhappy with what Allah has chosen for someone. So you're unhappy with Allah, that's what it is. And if you're unhappy with Allah, you have plunged yourself into the biggest possible crisis. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us through the lips of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith he says to us, in NASA Daya Kunal has an ad Kamata, Kuru, narrow hubbub jealousy will eat away your good deeds even if you have good deeds. In the same way that the fire eats away the dry log Subhana Allah you know how, if they were dry logs to Hana la v. Fire would consume the logs with a cracker

00:02:47--> 00:03:12

con, you had logs but they're gone. Allah says your good deeds are like dry logs and jealousy is like fire. And that fire will consume the dry logs with a cracker and it will go so don't be jealous because in that case, you have destroyed your relationship with Allah by being jealous of what Allah has given someone else. Remember, always Allah is the giver.
