Reputation with non-Muslims
Dr. Aidh al-Qarni records in his magnum opus La Tahzan (Don't Be Sad) that
Ibn Mubarak's neighbor was a Jew. He would always feed him before feeding his own children and would provide clothing for him first and then for his children. Some people said to the Jew, "Sell us your house." He answered, "My house is for two thousand dinars. One thousand is for the price of the house and one thousand is for having Ibn Mubarak as a neighbor!"
