Rehab met a lady who was selling a Shea Butter scrub along hand + feet cream, a product value of $24 for a sale price of $8. Not wanting to let go off this deal, she immediately made a purchase.
Hamid stopped over one afternoon at a masjid to perform the Dhuhar salaah. He was tired from work and was feeling very hungry. He recalled seeing a $5 bill in his wallet before coming to the Masjid, and was making plans for grabbing a sandwich when a young man stopped him on his way out. The young man was carrying a few pieces of his calligraphy and eagerly asked Hamid if he would like to make any purchase to help him out. Hamid thought about the $5 bill he had, felt his stomach growly and then looked at the young man’s face. Feeling pity on the young man, he asked him to give his best calligraphy.
The young man patiently waited, as Hamid looked for the $5 bill in his wallet. Surprisingly, Hamid searched throughout his wallet and could not find the $5 bill. He asked the young man to wait and started looking again and then he found the bill folded in between some receipts. He made the purchase and the young man thanked him for his generosity.
It has been a few months since Rehab and Hamid made their purchases.
The Shea Butter set is still sitting on Rehab’s dresser after initially being used for a couple times. Whereas, the durood that Hamid purchased from the young man is still benfiting both Rehab and Hamid everytime they see it.
So, who really made a better deal? :)
