The underlying reason of the illness of envy is the ignorance of supposing the envied person and his worldly properties as infinite. From the rational point of view, everyone knows that the reality is not as what they suppose to be but when feelings gain control, the poor reason cannot help thinking so.

In a century, people who envy and who are envied will not exist, so ranks, authorities, wealth and governments which are subject to envy will be possessed by others; and then they will be busy with those objectives for a while and eventually they will be taken by others without really belonging to any of them.

Every purposeful arrangement from the solar system to the atomic system proclaims the Divine Determining
The number and characteristics of elements inform us of the Divine Determining
It all happened through Divine Determining that plants and animals are divided into kinds and species and that each species is given different capabilities...

Is not envying to wish that a man who becomes affluent by stealing would lose his property. Envy is to be unable to stand licit affluence, a rank or a virtue that Allah has given them of his bounty. As for wishing that those will be seized from a believer means criticizing Divine Determining and opposing mercy.
