On 28th April, 2012, we were in the reception hall of the hotel waiting for a bus to return back to Makkah, at Medina. It was a big and well decorated hall to seat for the customers for . There are some sofas and tea tables which were highly polished. On main wall there was a TV, in which Hajj live program was running.
Both of the religious cities( Makkah & Medina ) were crowded with foreigners from whole of the world. People come from every corner of the world, those are all Muslims. Specially in big cosmopolitan cities, we can find so many people of the world. But, here in these cities, we can find so many people of the world in large groups. Therefore we can recognize them from their dresses and physical structure. Like Indian, Pakistani & Bangladeshi, Indonesian and Malaysian, Chinese & Japanese , Afghanis & Iranians,
Egyptians & Turkish, Africans, Eastern and westerns.
Still a bus was not arrived at hotel. My wife and my self was sitting on the sofa and watching Hajjes in the TV- live show. But , I went to my room for some work and my wife changed the sofa to seat with a woman came from Mumbai. During that time a couple, to whom I had seen them talking with each other near sofa, may be they are from Turkish or from Egypt. Seated on the sofa just for a while and went to reception counter. My wife seen a currency note of a 200 Saudi Riyals on the sofa where a couple were sitting and before them I was sitting on it. She called that couple and showed that this is your currency note, please collect it. They refused to take it and said that it was not their’s. But my wife forced them to take that amount. Reluctantly they accepted that amount..
When I backed from my hotel room, I told my wife that I lost 200 Riyals some where.
My wife said, “oh, just before your arrival I gave it to that couple, those were not ready to accept it, but by forced I gave them , believing that it was their’s.” At that time that couple left the reception counter !
It was really surprised thing that same thing happen in life innocently and we can not do any thing so far .Money was not important . Repentance from any one is useless when destiny has fixed the situation prior. What more we can do ?
