Secrets of My Diary: #5. ~Enviousness~


Jealousy is that one stranded word for me which deserves no respect whatsoever. It can be fancied as a compilation of things that you don’t really need, but greed.
When you are jealous of someone, be it any reason then you are disdaining Allah for not creating you fine or producing you any less or doing injustice to you. And you see how ill-fated it appears like to not being enough.
So its really consequential for us to know that Allah wants a mere two things from us. Yes, He wants things from our side.
Strange, isn’t it? But, He does.
Foremost is ‘Shukr‘ i.e. thanksgiving and succeeding is ‘Sabr‘, i.e. patience.
Shukr of what He has blessed us with and Sabr of what He has planned to.

    1. Thank you so very much. πŸ™‚
      I think you forget to out “You” in beginning the end sentence. Or no?
      That means you’re commanding me to do that from next time.
      Okay Ma’am. jaisa aap kahein..:P

  1. Agreed 100%
    Jealousy is the one thing which in the Quran is stated to be a feeling that will DEFINITELY lead us to make a harmful action towards the person we are jealous of.
    It’s too strong of an emotion and we should seek refuge from it.
    May Allah protect us.

    1. Correct to the helm. πŸ‘
      Sometimes being ignorant can lead us into sins we don’t even know of.
      May Allah protect us.
      Aameen Summa Aameen.
      One question- if you don’t mind-then: how do you know quran so much? You study quran or just translation? Just asking.

      1. I don’t mind your question, but it’s sort of strange when people wonder how Muslims know so much Qur’an? Weren’t all Muslims supposed to know it anyway?
        Hah, but I’m trying to study. I can’t say I know a lot. Honestly, I’ve just caught these glimpses of the mind blowing depth in the Arabic language when I study it.
        I think once you take the beginning step, it automatically makes you wanna learn more. The soul yearns for it you know? It’s how Allah created us.
        So I’m not some accomplished learner of the Quran, but I try to make time for it. πŸ™‚
        Both for memorizing it and understanding it. πŸ™‚

        1. I am really sorry for the offence created. I did not mean that.
          My mistake. My apology.
          I should have been more clear.
          Studying Quran is a must. We all know that.
          I meant to ask if you learn it by yourself or are you taking up any classes. This.
          Because I resolute to have an in depth knowledge of Deen, apart from my professional course.
          Until now, I have been learning from a little here and there, like books, translations, lectures, bayaanat and stuffs.
          But, that’s exactly what I wanted to know.
          That you learn Arabic. I have planned to do the same.
          Thank you for your kind gesture.
          And I’m sorry for a late reply. This needed a lot of thinking, so that I don’t sound absurd this time. πŸ™‚
          May Allah be with you. Pray for me too.

          1. Hey I didn’t take offense. You’re making me feel so bad by those many apologies.
            I just meant it in general. That generally, even Muslims get surprised when you know too much about deen.
            Anyhow, not taking any real classes as of yet.
            I usually make with a few lectures online.
            Have you heard of Nouman Ali Khan? He’s got his top Arabic learning site online. You need like very little money to subscribe. You can learn over there whenever you’re free. Just make time for it.
            He’s brilliant in the way he teaches.
            I and my family have been wanting to subscribe since the past one year, but our financial situation is currently a mess, SubhanAllah, so even my studies have caught a break due to our situation. But a lot of this guy’s tafseer is free. You can listen to it on youtube, I’m sure. Even on soundcloud.
            In fact, I suggest you listen to Nouman Ali Khan’s tafseer of Surat – ul – Falaq, since that has the bit about jealousy in it.

            1. Should I be sorry about bringing up so many Sorry’s? You decide. πŸ™‚
              Han that’s the thing. We ourselves don’t learn. And we indirectly stop others from learning.
              Who doesn’t know him? He’s a pure class.
              I have his lectures. I learn a bit from them too. But, not in a proper manner. I haven’t watched his tafseer lectures though.
              That’d help. Jazak Allah for the help.
              May Allah reward you for your Sabr and Shukr in this life and I into the life hereafter.
              You are so inspiring.
              I sure will download it by tomorrow. In Sha Allah.
              Be glad. We have Allah. πŸ™‚
              Even if we have nothing. πŸ™‚
