Lender Forgives 1m Debt after Son Sells Home to Pay His Father’s Debt

A Saudi jeweller counts Saudi Riyal banknotes money after selling gold to a customer in a jewellery shop at the surrounding area of the Grand Mosque during the annual haj pilgrimage in the holy city of Mecca October 20, 2012. They might wear the humble white sheets required for Islam's haj pilgrimage, but for many visitors thronging Mecca's streets, the perfect souvenir of their trip is that most glittering of commodities: gold. For most pilgrims haj represents the fulfilment of a lifelong ambition and many of them want to commemorate their journey with keepsakes or gifts for relatives that carry a special religious significance.

A Saudi Lawyer, Dr. Abdul Rahman Al Subaihi, tweeted about an incident which took place in a Saudi court which has gone viral on social media among Arab users.

A man had owed 1 million Saudi Riyals to a lender which he was struggling to pay off so his son sold his home in order to pay off his father’s debt for him.

This act surprised the lender and after seeing the son’s sacrifice for his father, he decided to forgive the loan.

Here are a couple of reactions posted on social media by Saudis:

“Both the son and the lender have set good examples. They have proved to us that there are kind people even today.” said Rana.

“The lender rewarded the son for being good to his father. SR1m is not a small amount. This proves to us that there are still good human beings here.” said Salman.

This beautiful story highlights two amazing acts carried out by two people with big hearts. Firstly the son who sold his home for his father and second, the generous lender who forgave such a large amount. May Allah reward them both.
