Pride and jealousy

Question ID: 32215

Salam in our country we use a term “kou-a” which means older brother, it can be use to siblings, kins and other people not your relatives,it can be a sign of respect and mockery(indicating that you are an old person):

1.)if a person(27 y/o)is called kou-a by people 2 years or more young than him, and in return he get angry(inside)and dont speak with those people that called me kou-a, is this pride?

2.)if so, does it include in the pride that even in an atom’s weight can’t make you enter jannah?

3.)If a person is jealous of his sibling that even though 1 year young than him(26 y/o), but is not called kou-a(bcoz he looks like a teenager) by people 10 years young than him but this person has more Deeni knowledge than his sibling, but wish he has youthful look like his sibling and resorts to things that make him look young but still called by many kou-a(still looks old) and gets frustrated, is this envy that is haram?

1.) No.
3.) This is stupidity. One should act one’s age. The Shariat loves the young who act like old and does not like the old acting young.
