Narrated Abu Huraira may Allah be pleased with him :

The Messenger of Allah ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be pon him ) said, " Do not to wish to be the like of except two men: A man whom Allah has taught the Qur'an and he recites it during the hours of the night and during the hours of the day, and his neighbor listens to him and says, 'I wish I had been given what has been given to so-and-so, so that I might do what he does; and a man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it on what is just and right, whereupon an other man May say, 'I wish I had been given what so-and-so has been given, for then I would do what he does."

Sahih al-Bukhari

 Envy is one of the major destructive sins, it is the first sin that occurred in creation. Yet, it is recommended to wish what draws the slave closer to Allah the Almighty.

The believer competes with the other believers in the act of goodness. In this sense the believer follows those who seeks the supreme goals, strives against his self inclination to force himself to stick to the obedience and asceticism.

The man whom Allah has taught the Qur'an, has undoubtedly a great share of goodness. Pray to Allah Almighty to teach you what he taught him, then follow the supplication with the good deed: Go to a teacher to learn the verses of the Qur`an.

Begin with the short Surahs; they are easy for you mostly to memorize, they are the first parts that descended from the Qur'an. Be resolved to accomplish your noble goal whatever the cost is. Perhaps Allah will open the gates of his mercy for you then you can memorize the Qur`an.

Ask Allah to guide you maintain reading it during the hours of the day and the night.

The slave must use the available reasons but he is not obliged to reach the goal.

There is no doubt that this type of envy accompanied by the determination will sooner or later enable the slave to reach all or part of his goals, let us take the way to Allah while seeking his assistance.

Above what we mentioned, we learn two things from this Hadith:

The first is that one of the greatest blessings that Allah has granted to the believer is the memorization of the Qur'an and the continuation of its recitation along with learning and applying its meanings, as well as teaching it to people as much as possible.

The second is to encourage spending the money generously to those who deserve the help like the poor, the needy, and the disable ones, and to avoid stinginess as much as possible.
