Envier Opposes Allah’s Will

Say to the one who envies me,
‘Do you know who you are misbehaving against?’
You are misbehaving against Allah in what He gave
because you are not pleased with what He gave me
So he recompensated me for what you did and that is by
increasing me (in my blessings)
and shutting the doors of earning (a livelihood) in your face.
