A Facebook user identified as Ejalonibu Ganiyu, who is a Nigerian Islamic Imam and currently on pilgrimage in the holy city of Mecca, has taken to the social networking platform and showed the depths of his integrity after he reportedly returned a bag of money he found during his evening prayers.
The Imam revealed through his post that he found a bag that contained some undisclosed amount of money during his evening prayers. Instead of keeping the money, which is morally wrong, he rather decided to call on the nearby police officer’s attention and then handed over the money to him
According to Ganiyu, the police officer was shocked about the incident, was surprised that a Nigerian man could show such honesty.
“Today after solat suhur, I lost my phone somebody brought it to me then I went for mogrib prayer with four people whom we went together I found huge money my mind told me Allah is greater than this money. I called the police and handed the money to him.“He was very surprised DAT a Nigerian can return such money and he thanked me. DAT is the money in the picture may Almighty Allah reward All of us with Aljanat fridaos Amin masalam.”
A lot of his friends could be seen pouring in encomium to the Imam as he has truly displayed a rare quality of a leader.
