AUGUSTA, Ga. — A Muslim family received an unexpected surprise while dining at an Olive Garden in Augusta, Georgia on Christmas Eve.
Eslam Mohamed, wrote on Facebook that he and 11 other members of his family were dining at the restaurant when their bill was paid for by a total stranger.
Mohamed wrote, after they finished dinner they asked for their check. The waitress brought over the receipt with the message “Paid, Merry Christmas beautiful family.”
Mohamed posted a picture of the receipt on Facebook, along with his gratitude.
“I can’t express how this act touched our hearts. Among all the bad things happening to Muslims and the hate speech that the presidential candidate had made lately, there is still light in the dark, there is still hope within the frustration. All what I can say to who did that, Merry Christmas to you too and God bless such a beautiful heart you have.”
Mohamed’s post has gone viral with more than 22,000 shares, as of Monday evening.
