WATCH: Muslim man returns wallet to stranger because Islam teaches him to do so

The man returns the wallet with £220 saying he did so because he is a good Muslim, and Islam teaches its followers not to keep other people's money because it is forbidden, clearly differentiating between the fake Muslims such as ISIS and Al Qaeda.

As the world seemingly turns more and more Islamophobic and there is a rise in the instances of hate crimes against Muslims, here is one video that will put a smile on your face and help rebuild your faith in humanity. This video of a Muslim fast-food delivery guy returning a stranger’s wallet in London has gone viral.

Peshraw Ahmed, a delivery driver with Bare Grillz Fast Food in the English capital, found a wallet on the road, and checked its contents to identify the owner. He then drove down to the address given on the owner’s driving licence, so that he could return the wallet to the person, who has been identified as Gavin.

Ahmed films the conversation that follows with Gavin, who is extremely relieved to have his wallet – money and cards intact – returned to him because it holds his entire life’s savings of £220. Ahmed says how as a Muslim, stealing money is forbidden, and that Gavin is lucky that his wallet was found by a Muslim. “This is what religion teaches me,” he explained.

An overwhelmed Gavin calls Ahmed a good man, and even offers free guitar lessons (since he’s a guitar teacher), adding “There’s nobody else like you in the world…You’ve just saved my life. You don’t know how much we needed that money.”

Ahmed refuses the offer, but goes on to say that “Today, people look at Muslims very bad,” clearly differentiating between the fake Muslims such as ISIS and Al Qaeda, and the original good Muslims.

    One day I was in getting down a bus in Hubli , Lady who was sitting in the seat in front of me got and started walking , holding her kid. Luckily my eyes looked at the seat she got up from , I was shocked to see a gold chain I was sure it belonged to that lady , I called her and returned it.That chain would have easy weighed 40-50 grams costing easily 1 lac . I dint record it , i dint post it on the news channels . All I did was I returned it and walked away. That lady was so shocked ,she didn't even utter a thanks, but I am sure later she would have thanked me after I left the place and she was calmed down. I came home told the whole story to my wife. That'e it . Ends!!

                Masha"Allah! The joy one good deed from a good man, in this case, a Muslim, can do to a fellow human! You can just see the relief that man had on his face! It's indeed heart-warming! May they always be led to the right path. Allahu akbar!
