|How A Muslim Made My Sunday This Morning by Andyblaze: 10:29am On Aug 20|
This morning I went down to get my trouser amended, prior to going I had about 5,000 naira in the pocket of this said trouser and I totally forgot I had put it in there last night. Fast forward I went to an Hassan multipurpose shop near my street where they amended clothes, shoes and bags and gave the trouser to one to amend whilst I waited.
When he was there I went home and tested the trouser on my body, then I dipped my hand into my pockets and at that moment I remembered I had put some money there last night but lo and Behold there wasn't any money in there anymore. It was crazy as I sped immediately with the trouser still on back to the shop, one arriving back there I couldn't find the man who amended my trouser. I asked his colleagues about him but they said he had left then I complained to them that the cloth he amended for me had some money in it but I couldn't find it anymore. They told me they had seen no money but that he had already left. Dang! This man has claimed sharp on me and zoomed off with my money and I was resigning to fate, he came strolled back to the shop from wherever he went to and I couldn't recognize him but the other hausa men spoke some hausan to him and then told me he's the one.. I told him i had some money in the trouser he amended but after shaping I couldn't find the money...
Love and Behold, he dipped his hand in his pocket and told me he picked it on the floor that it must have fallen while I was removing the cloth from my body after testing his work. He handed back the 5,000 naira to me.
The honesty of this Muslim fella has made my Sunday already and I couldn't help but wonder, how many of we Christians can actually do this. I know certain people who probably would have shared that money amongst themselves the moment they saw it and all connive to say they didn't see it when I had returned to complain.
THE good is not by claiming we are God - fearing, it's by our deeds.
This is a true story and happened to me minutes ago, Happy Sunday Guys.

Dude honesty is not a function of religion but just a matter of principle.
There are as many Christians,Atheists,Traditionalists who are as honest as the Muslim guy in your story.
And in same vein,there are some very dishonest Muslims,Christains etc.
So please,do not tie an act of honesty to religion.

Yes, but when it comes honesty, Muslims are more honest than Christian.
So I just checked in my account to see several mentions- some insulting me and others calling me liar, and some claiming that religion has nothing to do with individual character.
The truth is , whether we like it or not, there are some forces that shape people behaviour and make them act the way they do, and religion is one of these forces.
Religion keep people in check, because of the fear of inevitable in the afterlife. Muslims are generally more devoted and serious about their religion than Christians. Muslims take religion Very serious and it's the most important to them, this is the reason why there are more honest Muslims than Christians because Islam in the strongest term, forbid cheating the lies and many other crimes.
Let me give you guys an example, I have never had the notion that Muslims are considered to be more honest than Christians until I joined nairaland. I have never had any serious relationship with Christians until I registered in this forum.
I trade PayPal, Bitcoin and many other currencies in nairaland business section, and there was time I want sell PayPal to one of the member here. The disagreement ensured between us as to who will send the money first. But once I drop my bank account name and he saw Muslim Hausa name, he asked if I'm northern Muslim and told him yes. He said no problem, he would send me the money first because he believes Muslims are more honest than Christian, especially northern Muslims. That's even how I got the idea that Muslims are more honest than Christians. This happened to me not once. And here in the north we see our self as less honest Muslims than Arab.

In Nigeria, almost all of us are evil we just use religion/parties/ideologies as camouflage. ..
In fact human beings in general. .

Andyblaze:Thanks for the testimony but the truth of the matter is that you were just lucky. There are some persons that have conscience that wouldn't take what belongs to another be it a Christian,Muslim,Atheist or pagan.

papiforreal:Probably it's what you observed based on what you have seen but the truth is that we can catergorical evaluate honesty based on religion since it hasn't been proven scientifically. There are many Christians that are honest too same with Muslims so it would be difficult to say that Muslims are more truthful. If you say so, the rate of corruption in core Muslim state would have less or not seen at all

Anyone could have done that.
It all depends on personal principles and convictions.
It's really not a function of any religion whatsoever.

Why are u myopic in ur thinking? Both religion teaches honesty so be it Christians or Muslims it has to do with personal choice nd personality of the person. We of course knw dat a spirit filled Christian will also return dat money

It's not a matter of religion rather a conscience.
