Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
Beware of envy because
envy consumes (destroys) the virtues just as the fire consumes the firewood,''
or he said
[Abu Dawud].
Envy is one of the major sins which are bound to destroy virtues as fast as the fire burns the wood
and dry grass to ashes.
