Sulaiman bin Jahm Al-Ansaari (rahimahullah) once offered to sell his house in exchange for a hundred thousand dirhams. When those who were interested approached him, he asked them: “The house is for sale in exchange of a hundred thousand dirhams, but how much will you pay for being the neighbour of Sa'eed bin 'Aas (rahimahullah).” They replied: “Is that something anyone ever “pays a price for?” He said: “Then in that case, call this deal off! By Allah, I can never leave such a neighbour who, whenever he does not see me he enquires about me and whenever he sees me, he is most warm and welcoming towards me. If I leave home for any errand then he takes special care of whatever belongings I’ve left behind. If I am at home then he always makes himself available to assist me. If I have to ask him for anything then he grants it to me most willingly. And when I don’t ask then he approaches me enquiring whether there is anything I need. If any calamity befalls me then he is first to come to my aid.”

When this reached Sa’eed (rahimaullah) he sent a hundred thousand dirhams as a gift to him. (Risaalatul Mustarshideen pg. 197)

A man once verbally abused Abu Zar Ghifaari (radhiyallahu anhu) the illustrious Sahaabi of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he replied to the man’s insult with the following words: “Brother! 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 Loot (alaihis salaam) was amongst those personalities who were divinely selected to receive prophethood and guide their nations to Allah Ta’ala. He was sent to a people who had become void of all natural and instinctive tendencies. They refused to take heed to the repeated calls of guidance given to them by Nabi Loot (alaihis salaam) and their depraved behaviour was worse than that of even animals. They became inhuman, losing all moral values. Nabi Loot (alaihis salaam) continued to advise them for a long time. Eventually when they transgressed all limits, they “invited” such a punishment which was to be as severe as their crime.
