The Evil Twins : Jealousy & Envy (Video)

info-pictogram1 Jealousy and envy is basically when you see someone has something and you want it for yourself. Islamically, there is a concept known as hasad. Hasad is similar to jealousy and envy, expect in hasad, you not only want what they have, but you also want that they don’t have it.

For example, let’s say you know someone who has more friends than you on Facebook or more followers on twitter. Hasad is you wanting more followers and friends than they have and that they have less. Thus, whatever they have and they’ve been blessed with be taken away from them.

It’s normal for people to feel jealous or envious of others when you see they’ve been blessed with certain things. The best possible tip I have for you, whenever you’re feeling jealous or envious make a very simple du’a (supplication/prayer to Allah).

That du’a is, “Allahumma zid wa barik”

You’re saying, “O Allah, increase them in what you’ve given them and put blessings in it.”


It may seem counter intuitive. “If I’m jealous of them, why would I ask Allah to give them more?”

There’s benefit in this. When you make du’a for someone else, we know the angels make the same du’a for you. When you ask Allah to increase them in what they have, you’re making du’a for yourself as well.

Also, when you make du’a for someone else, you release the negative feelings you have toward them. You’re realize that jealousy and envy is very poisonous for the soul. It makes an individual very uneasy.

When you make this du’a, you’ll feel this release from your soul. You’ll feel this positivity. And, in sha Allahu ta’la, you’re on the road to get closer to Allah subhanahu wa ta’la.

And, Allah knows best. Until next time…

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
