عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بن مَسْعُودٍ يقول قال رسول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لَا حَسَدَ إلا في اثْنَتَيْنِ رَجُلٌ آتَاهُ الله مَالًا فَسَلَّطَهُ على هَلَكَتِهِ في الْحَقِّ وَرَجُلٌ آتَاهُ الله حِكْمَةً فَهُوَ يَقْضِي بها وَيُعَلِّمُهَا

‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ud (rta) says that God’s Messenger (sws) said: “Only two people are worthy of envy: a person whom God has given wealth and he went about spending it for the cause of the truth and a person whom God blessed with wisdom and he decided [the affairs of people] through it and taught it [to them].”[1]
