    Exclamation A Severe Warning To The Students of Knowledge, by Shaikh al-'Uthaimeen

    Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah

    A Severe Warning To The Students of Knowledge, by Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saaleh al-'Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah)

    Excerpt: "Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-'Uthaymeen stated whilst addressing some of the mistakes committed by some of the students of knowledge:

    From them (i.e. those mistakes) is envy, and it is to harbour hatred for that which Allaah has bestowed upon another person. It is not merely wishing that Allaah's blessings (bestowed) upon another person should cease, rather it is merely hating that which Allaah has bestowed upon others. This is envy regardless whether one wishes that (the blessing) should cease to exist or whether it should remain but still hating it, as Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: 'Envy is a person’s hatred of what Allaah has bestowed upon other than him.'"

    Excerpt: "...that is from the traits of the Yahood about whom Allaah has stated:

    [ أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَى مَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِنْ فَضْلِه ِفَقَدْ آتَيْنَا آلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُمْ مُلْكاً عَظِيما ]

    Or do they envy men (Muhammad and his followers) for what Allaah has given them of His Bounty? Then We had already given the family of Ibraahim (Abraham) the Book and Al-Hikmah (As-*Sunnah), and conferred upon them a great kingdom. (An-Nisa`, ayah 54)

    The envious one falls into the (following) perils:

    First Peril: Harbouring hatred for that which Allaah has decreed, because harbouring hatred towards what Allaah has bestowed upon a person is (deemed to be) hatred for that which Allaah has decreed universally, and it is an opposition to what Allaah has pre-decreed.

    Second Peril: Envy eats away good deeds just as fire eats away fire wood, because in most cases the envious one transgresses upon the one who is envied by uttering speech that is hateful to the (envied person), making the people turn away from him, lowering his status and other (actions) similar to that. This (action of the envious one) is from the major sins by way of which good deeds are lost."

    For the article and the remainder of this list of 10 perils as a result of envy - perils which also include resemblance to the Jews and negating perfection of Eeman - as well as a highly beneficial conclusion and solution, click on the headline or here.

    Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk

    If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
