Ahnaf on Envy: No rest and relaxation for the envious and hateful

March 8, 2015

Al-Bayhaqi reported: Ahnaf ibn Qais, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Five are as I say: There is no rest for the envious, there is no chivalry 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 رضي الله عنه خَمْسٌ هُنَّ كَمَا أَقُولُ لا رَاحَةَ لِحَسُودٍ وَلا مُرُوءَةَ لِكَذُوبٍ وَلا وَفَاءَ لِمُلُوكٍ وَلا حِيلَةَ لِبَخِيلٍ وَلا سُؤْدَدَ لِسَيِّئِ الْخُلُقِ
