Prohibition of Envy

Imam Al-Nawawi’s Riyad-us-Saliheen
Chapter 270
Prohibition of Envy

Allah, the Exalted, says:

Or do they envy men (Muhammad (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and his followers) for what Allah has given them of His Bounty?” (4:54)

1569.  Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Beware of envy because envy consumes (destroys) the virtues just as the fire consumes the firewood,” or he said “grass.”
