How to avoid Envy

Among all traditions Envy is considered evil. People define it as unreasonable, irrational, imprudent, vicious, or wrong to feel. Following is a collection of Islamic traditions on how to avoid Envy by Imam Zaid Shakir. .....

Ten Cures for Envy

  1. Seeking refuge with Allah from its evil. (Verse 5 Shura 113 - Quran 113:1-5)

  2. Being conscious of Allah (Taqwa).

  3. Patience with one's social enemy [by not retaliating against him].

  4. Relying on Allah, for whosoever relies on Allah, He suffices him.

  5. Emptying the heart of being preoccupied with or thinking about her [the object of one's envy].

  6. Orienting oneself towards Allah, being sincere with Him, placing His love, pleasure and penitence to Him in the place of fleeting thoughts of the soul and its baseless aspirations.

  7. Having pure repentance to Allah from the sins his enemies have led him to commit.

  8. Giving charity and engaging in acts of goodness to the extent possible, because that has an amazing effect in repulsing tribulations, the evil eye, and the wickedness of the envious person.

  9. This is the most difficult cure for the ego, and the weightiest upon it. No one is given the providence to undertake it except one whose portion [of spiritual strength] from Allah is great. It is extinguishing the fire of envy, iniquity, and harm by extending good to the envious person.

  10. This is the compendium of all of the other cures; they all revolve around it. Namely, pure divine unity, and elevating your thought from the effects manifested in creation [something envy revolves around] to the mighty, wise cause of those effects.

Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, al-Tafsir al-Qayyam

Imam Zaid Shakir's twitter messages 
 
The unexamined life is not worth living, the unexamined gift is not worth giving.
 
If you see the world as a masquerade, can you recognize your own face?
 
The world is a prison for the believer. He cannot escape without the warden's help. The world is paradise for the disbeliever. He cannot appreciate it without imprisoning himself.
 
An ill-considered contention is oftentimes better than a calculated pretension.
 
Within us all there lies the potential to realize our dreams. However, within only a few of us there lies the courage to realize our pot ...
 
If your disappointment with Muslims leads you to divorce your heart from Islam; maybe Islam was never in your heart to begin with.
 
Don't tell me how bad my words or actions may have unintentionally been. Tell me how I can consciously rectify them.
 
Hatred is the refuge of wretched souls. Try to find some love in your life and spread it around.!
 
Nothing worth having is ever free, nor should we expect it to be. What are we willing to pay for a great community?
 
Capitalism is a system predicated on infinite growth in a finite world. It is doomed to fail.
 
If we were sincere about fostering a better world, the existence of that world would be the fruit of our sincerity.
