I am jealous of some people. How do I remedy this?

Question:

 

I have had these feelings of jealousy over fellow people i am not sure why but i do. i feel guilty after feeling that way as i know one shoudnt have jealousy for another person. Is there any duaah that can assist one in not feeling  that way? as it is depressing me

 Answer:

 

Hakeemul Ummah (Rahimahullah) has advised the following:

You should make Dua for those you are jealous of that Allah grants them more and in general, make Dua for their well being, salvation in the Aakhirah etc. If it is possible, you may also buy gifts for these people. Insha Allah, this will replace the jealousy in your heart with love and compassion for them. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said, “Give gifts to each other, you will love each other”.

 

And Allah Knows Best
