Riyad as-Saliheen 571

Ibn Mas'ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "Envy is permitted only in two cases: A man whom Allah gives wealth, and he disposes of it rightfully, and a man to whom Allah gives knowledge which he applies and teaches it."

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله ﷺ : “ لا حسد إلا فى اثنتين : رجل آتاه الله مالاً ، فسلطه على هلكته فى الحق، ورجل آتاه الله حكمة فهو يقضي بها ويعلمها” ((متفق عليه وتقدم شرحه قريباً)) .
