Fudayl on Faith: The believer is happy for others and has good will towards others

October 21, 2015

Abu Nu’aim reported: Fudayl ibn Iyad, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Admiration is part of faith and envy is part of hypocrisy. The believer admires others and does not envy others, and the hypocrite envies others and does not admire others. The believer overlooks the faults of others, admonishes others, and gives good advice. The hypocrite disgraces others, insults others, and betrays others.”

عن أبي نعيم  قَالَ الْفُضَيْلُ رحمه الله الْغِبْطَةُ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ وَالْحَسَدُ مِنَ النِّفَاقِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُ يَغْبِطُ وَلا يَحْسِدُ وَالْمُنَافِقُ يَحْسِدُ وَلا يَغْبِطَ وَالْمُؤْمِنُ يَسْتُرُ وَيَعِظُ وَيَنْصَحُ وَالْفَاجِرُ يَهْتِكُ وَيُعَيِّرُ وَيُفْشِي
