As Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh

Jealously in reality is to be angry with Allah Ta’ala. It is as if you are questioning Allah Ta’ala as to why some bounty was given to another person whereas you were more deserving and worthy of it!? (Allah forbid).

 

The remedy for this disease is to bestow gifts to the one you are jealous over, make salaam to him and shake his hands, invite him for meals and constantly make dua for him. Insha-Allah your heart will be cleansed of the jealousy.
