Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh


Walhamdulillah the following book written by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (rahimahullah) addresses the topic of hasad, and we seek refuge in Allah ta`ala from falling into or being affected by it aameen.


Insert from the back cover:


"An envious person and a person possessing the evil eye are similiar in one respect, but differ in another. They both generate evil within their souls and then aim it at their intended targets. So how do they differ?


The soul of the evil eye spawns its poison in the presence or absence of their object. Secondly, the evil eye can afflict an animal, inanimate object, money or the possessions of someone the envier does not envy. Moreover, if the carrier of the eye has done little to try and remove envy from their soul, their envy will revert back to them. Without a doubt, whenever this individual fixes their eyes on something, their look is a glaring glance of admiration, filled with their soul's ill-will intended to afflict the envied.


Allah said:

"And verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes through hatred when they hear the reminder..."
