Not only did Mohammad spare the robbers life, but he sent him on his way with some bread and $40. Apparently the thief said he was doing it to provide for his family. A couple of months Later Mohammad received a letter thanking him for everything he did, it also contained $50.

Sohail joked that the robbery ended up bringing him good fortune. “When you do good things for somebody, it comes back to you. I gave him $40 and he sent me back $50. It was a good investment.”
