“Envy, malevolence, malice.” It occurs twice in the Qur’an.
Surah ii. 103: “Many of the people of the Book (i.e. Jews and Christians) desire to bring you back to unbelief after ye have believed, out of selfish envy, even after the truth hath been clearly shewn them.”
Surah cxiii. 5 : “I seek refuge… from the envy of the envious when he envies.”
