Man is Jealous 


Is man jealous in islam? What does jealous means in islam? What is the jealous?

This is one of man’s most dangerous features. The Qur’an says:

“Souls were made inclined to jealousy.” (Al-Nisa, 4: 128)

“Or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of His bounty?” (Al-Nisa, 4: 54)

The Prophet (saw) also warns against the harms of being jealous:

Avoid jealousy…for jealousy devours the good like a fire devours wood.” (Abu Dawud, Adab, 44)

Subsequent to telling us that offering charity is the best cure for jealousy, Allah says:

“And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul – it is those who will be the successful.” (Al-Hashr, 59: 8)
