A disease of the former people

A disease of the former people

On the authority of al-Zubayr Ibn al-Awam (may Allah be pleased with him) it is related the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“You have been afflicted with a disease of the nations that came before you – jealousy and hatred. They are shavers (destroyers), I do not mean they are the shavers of hair, rather they are the shavers (destroyers) of faith.”

[At-Tirmidhi, at-Tabaranee and al-Hakim].


Just like a serious physical disease which might affect the whole body and destroy everything, unless it is cured. Similarly jealousy and hatred are spiritual diseases, which if found in anybody’s heart, will eventually end up destroying the spirit of that person, until that person’s faith becomes completely ruined and destroyed.
