Dhikr is obedience to Allah. Whoever obeys Allah has in fact remembered Him. Whoever does not obey Him is not one who remembers Him, even if he says tasbeeh, and recites the Qur’an a lot.

—Sa’eed b. Jubayr

[Sharh as-Sunnah, al-Baghawee, vol. 5, p.10]

Envy is Hating Allah’s Decree

To envy is to desire the removal of Allah’s Blessings from their owner.  This is the first level of envy. The second level is to hope misfortune follows the servant (as a shadow would follow its object).  On this level the envious one wishes that the object of their envy remains ignorant, poor, weak, and hopes that their heart is separated from Allah.  They wish the religion of the one they envy remains deficient.  In truth, this envious person hates what Allah Decrees and Grants to His servants.

—Ibn al-Qayyim [d. 751H/1350CE]

Get yourself out of this limited world of diseases to the wide world of the hereafter, which has what the eyes have never seen. Nothing is impossible there, and love is not lost.
  Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah 
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “A person will not be able to move from his place (on the day of retribution), until he replies to five questions: How did you spend your life? How did you spend your youth? Where did you earn your wealth from? Where did you spend your wealth? How much did you act upon your knowledge?”
 [Tirmidhi, 2422; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1969]
Whoever would like to know if he loves Allah or not, then let him check his relation with the Qur’an. Whoever loves the Qur’an then he loves Allah, for indeed the Qur’an is but the word of Allah.
Abdullah Ibn Masoud RA
