Beware of a Jealous Heart – Khutbah by Nouman Ali Khan

This Khutbah was recorded in Euless on 03/03/2017.

In Surah An-Nisaa Allah lays out the worst sins we must avoid. But often, says Nouman Ali Khan, people with a distorted sense of proportion focus so much on the small oversights while ignoring the major ones. A root cause of some of our serious sins is jealousy and envy. It is what drove iblis out of Allah’s grace and what led Cain to kill Abel. Jealousy and envy must not be underestimated and always entail a twisted desire to see others fail. They often creep up on you and affect every sphere of your life. When you’re jealous, it is impossible to be grateful to Allah because you’re always thinking about what you don’t have. Allah’s solution is to stop comparing yourself to others and to focus on asking Him directly for what you want.
