There is a steep and rocky road between me and Jannah. If I pass through safely, then your insult means nothing to me. But on the contrary, if I fail to cross that path and hence I am prevented from reaching Jannah then indeed I am worthy of insults much worse than what you have mentioned.” (Nafhatul-Arab Pg.13)

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)

A great scholar of Makkah Mukarramah, Shaikh Dahhaan, related the following thought provoking incident: 

A learned man who lived in Makkah Mukarramah passed away. Sometime later, his grave was re-dug to bury another person. To the utter amazement of those present, there lay in his grave the body of a beautiful European looking girl. Coincidently, there was a man from Europe among the crowd who identified this girl. He said, “This girl is from France and the daughter of a Christian. She had accepted Islam secretly and studied some deeni books from me. All of a sudden she fell ill and passed away.”
