A Saudi boy who found SR13,000 (Dh13,000) on the road returned the money to its owner and refused to be rewarded, a newspaper reported on Thursday.
Majdi Al Rayani, 10, was riding his bicycle near his house in the southern Jazan province when he saw the mans purse, which also contained personal documents.
Mohammed told his father, who phoned the police and went with his son to return the money to its owner at the police station.
The man could hardly believe his eyes when he saw the money returning to him
he deeply thanked Majdi and decided to give him some money as a reward
but the boy refused to take it, saying what he has done was his duty, Sabq daily said.
There are little pockets of character everywhere.
Our government is doing everything in its power to prevent those little pockets from joining up.
I’m afraid this kid will be singled out for ‘re-education’ as this story is spread.
That ain’t the moon they’re worshipping. If it was, it would be a step in the right direction. They worship the Dark One.
I think he should have left some money with the boy’s father to be used for the boy’s benefit; that is, if the father could be trusted to use it for that purpose. The boy deserved a reward.
The best reward is knowing that you did the right thing - and he knows it and earned it.
