Nabi Yusha’ (alaihis salaam) once received revelation that one hundred thousand people from his nation will be destroyed in a punishment to befall them. The strange thing was that sixty thousand of them were sinners and transgressors, whereas the remainder forty thousand were outwardly pious people. In astonishment Yusha’ (alaihis salaam) asked: “O Allah, what crime did the pious ones commit?” Allah Ta’ala replied: “They freely associated and interacted with the evil doers and did not express any type of anger or aversion for the wrongs taking place around them.” (Al-Bahrul Muheet vol. 3 pg. 533)

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) once mentioned an incident of a person who purchased some land from another. The purchaser found an earthenware utensil filled with gold buried in the ground. Hence he went to the seller and told him: “Take your gold, for I have purchased from you only the land and not the gold.” The former owner replied: “Well! I have sold you the land together with whatever is in it.”

Hence both the buyer and seller presented their case to a third person in order to resolve their dispute. He asked them: “Do you have any children?” One of them replied: “I have a son.” The other replied: “I have a daughter.” The one presiding over their case then said: “Get the boy married to the girl. Spend some of this wealth in seeing to their needs and give the rest in charity.” (Saheeh Bukhari #3472)

Lesson: The end result of having a big heart is always sweet. In this incident due to the big-heartedness of both parties, Allah Ta’ala blessed them in a wonderful manner and both benefitted.
