Ibn Mas’ud on Envy: The envier is an enemy to the decree of Allah

Al-Qurtubi reported: Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Do not be an enemy to the blessings of Allah.” It was said, “Who is an enemy to the blessings of Allah?” Ibn Mas’ud said, “Those who envy people for what Allah has given them of his favor.”

Al-Qurtubi said, “Allah Almighty said in some of his scriptures: The envier is an enemy of My blessings, displeased with My decree while not satisfied with My distribution.”

عن القرطبي قَالَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مَسْعُودٍ رضي الله عنه لَا تُعَادُوا نِعَمَ اللَّهِ قِيلَ لَهُ وَمَنْ يُعَادِي نِعَمَ اللَّهِ قَالَ الَّذِينَ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَى مَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ

وقال القرطبي يَقُولُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى فِي بَعْضِ الْكُتُبِ الْحَسُودُ عَدُوُّ نِعْمَتِي مُتَسَخِّطٌ لِقَضَائِي غَيْرُ رَاضٍ بِقِسْمَتِي
