Ahnaf on Envy: No rest for the envious, hateful

Al-Bayhaqi reported: Al-Ahnaf ibn Qays, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Five are as I say: There is no rest for the envious, there is no manhood for the liar, there is no loyalty for kings, there is no escape for the miser, and there is no respect for bad character.”

عن البيهقي قَالَ الأَحْنَفُ بْنُ قَيْسٍ رحمه الله خَمْسٌ هُنَّ كَمَا أَقُولُ لا رَاحَةَ لِحَسُودٍ وَلا مُرُوءَةَ لِكَذُوبٍ وَلا وَفَاءَ لِمُلُوكٍ وَلا حِيلَةَ لِبَخِيلٍ وَلا سُؤْدَدَ لِسَيِّئِ الْخُلُقِ
