(Correspondence of Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi rahimahullah)

Letter: A teacher has joined our institute and he suffers from the disease of jealousy. He does not speak to me, but rather he pulls up his face. I have a good relationship with the principal so this adds to his jealousy. I exercise patience. Kindly advise me further.

Reply:   Read sura falaq and sura naas and blow over yourself. After ‘Esha perform two rak’aat nafl Salaah and pass on the reward to those who are jealous of you. (Maktoobaat vol. 5, pg. 54)
