Day 11: Get Rid of Envy
Envy is a combination of different vices. When we envy someone, we have greed and entitlement for what someone else has. We could also feel some enmity towards them. But the biggest problem, is that we are essentially discontent with Allah’s decree. Envy isn’t just an abstract sin. It has the uncanny ability to take over your life, make you extremely unhappy, and ruin your relationships. We also know that envy burns good deeds like fire burns wood.
This Ramadan, get rid of envy. When you feel the taste of it in your heart, deal with it immediately. Make a dua for that person, such as “O Allah, give them more and give me more.” By making dua sincerely, Allah will assist you in purifying yourself, and becoming a healthier, happier person.
