Two Enviable Persons

 

عَبْدَ اللّٰہِ بِنْ مَسْعُودٍ يقول قال رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہِ صَلَّي اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا حَسَدَ إلا في اثْنَتَيْنِ رَجُلٌ آتَاهُ اللّٰہ مَالًا فَسَلَّطَهُ علي هَلَكَتِهِ في الْحَقِّ وَرَجُلٌ آتَاهُ اللّٰہ 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]
