Envy is of Satan

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Muhammad ar- Rumi (q.s.) wrote:

“When Satan sees, to the left or right,
Anyone who is perfect, he becomes ill with envy.
For every wretch, whose stack has been burnt,
Is unwilling for anyone else’s candle should be lighted.
Pay attention, and work on perfecting yourself,
So, that perfection of others may not grieve you.
Beg of God, the Removal of envy,
That God may Deliver you from externals,
And Bestow upon you an inward occupation,
Which will absorb you, so that your attention is not drawn away.”
