Some people said while explaining its meaning: ‘Envy (hasad) is a grievance that befalls one due to knowledge of the good condition of the wealthy.’ So in accordance with this it is not possible that the person upon whom the blessings have been bestowed be jealous of these blessings and is accustomed to them.

Islam speaks about two elements of forgiveness:
a) Allaah’s forgiveness;
b) Human forgiveness. We need both, because we do wrong in our relations to Allaah as well as in our relations to each other.
By Shohala Hakim
“And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, “O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think.” He said, “O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast.” And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead, We called to him, “O Abraham, You have fulfilled the vision.” Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good. Indeed, this was the clear trial.” (Qur’an 37:102-106)
By Muhammad Ratib An-Nabulsi
Excellence is one of the characteristics of a true believer
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “How wonderful is the situation of the believer, for all his affairs are good. If something good happens to him, he gives thanks for it and that is good for him; if something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience, and that is good for him. This does not apply to anyone other than the believer.” (Muslim, #2999)
Self-confidence is bornefrom the Believer’s intimate knowledge and understanding that Allah is ever ready to assist those who strive and struggle in His way. Self-confidence comes from depending upon Allah and knowing that He is there to help you, protect you and shower His mercies upon you…
Being humble is best defined in general as being unassuming of one’s own greatness, precedence, or importance among others
After death, the people in heaven are rewarded differently based upon how much they value this life as a means to achieve success in the Hereafter.
