Why servants of God must avoid being jealous?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: God told Musa Ibn Imran (AS): Do not be jealous about what I have given them out of My Mercy, and do not stare at them, and do not pursue them in your heart. Because the jealous one is angry about My Blessings that I grant to My servants, and is against the sustenance which I divide between My servants. And the one who is like this, neither I am from him/her, nor he/she is from Me [1]. In another narration, Imam Sadeq (AS) said: When Musa Ibn Imran (AS) was praying to God, he saw a man who was in the shadow of Divine Thrown, and said: O’ God, who is this person that Divine Thrown is providing shadow for him? God replied: O’ Musa, this person is not jealous about what God has granted to people from Divine Mercy [2].
