Hasad (Envy and Jealousy) between those seeking Knowledge

Hasad (Envy and Jealousy) between those seeking Knowledge is from the
severest forms of Hasad
Ash-Shaykh al-Uthaymeen, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said

Verily, al-Hasad (Envy, Jealousy) is an awful trait which is unfortunately found mostly between the scholars and (between) the students of knowledge; it is (also) found between the business men with regards to each other. Everyone who possesses an occupation he is envied by his colleague in it

But sadly the hasad between the Scholars and between the students of knowledge is more SEVERE while they should have been the first (of the people) and the most worthy that they the people of knowledge be furthest of the people from Hasad and to be the closest (of the people) to the best of characters

[The Reference: The Book of Knowledge, page 54, print: Daarul Minhaaj]

Allaah , The Most High said

وَجَعَلْنَا بَعْضَكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ فِتْنَةً أَتَصْبِرُونَ وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ بَصِيرًا

And We have made some of you as a trial for others: will you have patience? And your Lord is Ever All-Seer (of everything). (Al-Furqan 25:20)

A Poet said

Remain patient upon the envy of the jealous, for indeed patience will deter him
Indeed the fire will devour itself if it does not find anything else to burn
