“I am afraid that wordly life will tempt you and cause you to compete with each other for it”

1480. Narrated ‘Uqba bin Aamir (radhi Allaahu anhu) :

Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) offered the funeral prayers of the martyrs of Uhud eight years after (their death) as if bidding farewell to the living and the dead, then he ascended the pulpit and said,

“I am your predecessor before you, and I am a witness over you, and your promised place to meet me will be Haud (Al-Kauthar) (on the Day of Resurrection), and I am (now) looking at it from this place of mine. I am not afraid that you will worship other besides Allaah, but I am afraid that wordly life will tempt you and cause you to compete with each other for it.”

Allaah has divided mercy into one hundred parts and He kept ninetynine parts with Him and sent down one part on the earth, and because of that one single part, His creatures are merciful to each other, so that even the mare lifts up its hoof away from its baby animal, lest it should trample on it.

Allaah is pleased with the repentance of His slave

1747. Narrated ‘Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (radhi Allaahu anhu) : Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,

Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of His slave than a man who encamps at a place where his life is in jeopardy, but he has his riding animal carrying his food and water. He then rests his head and sleeps for a short while and wakes to find his riding animal gone. (He starts looking for it) and suffers exhausion from severe heat and thirst or what Allaah wished (him to suffer from). He then says, ‘I will go back to my place.’ He returns and sleeps again, and then (getting up), he raises his head to find his riding animal standing beside him.

While  Allah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) was sitting in the mosque with some people, three men came.

When Allaah’s  Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) finished his preaching, he said,

“Shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them betook himself to Allaah, so Allaah took him into His Grace and Mercy and accommodated him, the second felt shy from Allaah, so Allaah sheltered him in His Merccy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from Allaah and went away, so Allaah turned His Face from him (likewise).”

Envy is permitted only in two cases

1377. Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said,

“Envy is permitted only in two cases: A man whom Allah gives wealth, and he disposes of it rightfully, and a man to whom Allah gives knowledge which he applies and teaches it.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary:  According to Imam An-Nawawis explanation, the word Hasad (jealousy) is used in the sense of Ghibtah  i.e., envy. In Islam, jealousy is forbidden and is held unlawful. The reason being that one who is jealous wants that the person, who possesses the quality of which he is jealous, be deprived of that quality. Envy is permissible for the reason that when one seems that a person has been graced by Allah with certain gifts and qualities, he also desires to be blessed with those gifts. In the latter case, he does not grumble and grieve but eagerly prays to Allah for those gifts. `Knowledge’ here stands for the knowledge of the Qur’an and Hadith because this knowledge alone is beneficial for man, and it is through this knowledge that correct judgements can be made among the people. This Hadith has an inducement for acquiring useful knowledge along with wealth to spend in the ways ordained by Allah.
