Hadith ~ Envy in two cases

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

It was related that Abd Allah ibn Mas’ud (May Allah be satisfied with him) said that The Prophet (May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection) said: “Do not envy others except in two cases. The first is a person whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously and the second is the one whom Allah has given wisdom and he acts upon it and teaches it.” (Bukhari)
