Hasd is of the major sins and can affect the person being envied. But I have heard different opinions regarding weather it counts if one wishes in his mind and heart bad things but does not for example do something or makes dua with his tounge? Some say that if it’s in the mind and heart it can’t affect and also that one won’t get a sin because of it. Others say that it still counts as a sin to wish bad upon someone and can have an affect. Which is correct and if something then happens is the envious person responsible for it, for example if someone dies does God count it on me, that I killed this person?
أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
بِسْمِ ٱللَّٰهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Islamic Knowledge / Instructions have three major divisions, Fundamental of Faith ( Aqeeda), Islamic Ethics / Morals. Islamic Law / Fiqh ( Jurisprudence).
Islamic law / Fiqh (Jurisprudence) is related to Acts. Actions of the Mukallaf ( The legally responsible person ). If unconsciously negative idea comes into our mind, we can not act on it. Hasad or envy is a psychic state in which a person wishes for the deprivation of a blessing, talent or merit, real or imagined, possessed by another person.
Hasad (Envy) is due to improper understanding of Tawheed / Divine Justice, and Islamic ethics / morals. The person is not happy with what Allah (awj) has granted his servant. It is the disease of the soul / heart. It has psychological consequences.
