(Dec. 3) -- A Long Island deli owner received a thank-you letter from a would-be robber he held at gunpoint before letting him go with $40 and a loaf of bread, the New York Post reported.
The letter -- which also included $50 -- was anonymous, but Mohammad Sohail says the apology is similar to tearful comments the man made when he tried to rob the store with a baseball bat last May.


"Now I have a new child and good job make good money staying out of trouble and taking care of my family. You gave me forty dollars thank you for sparing my life Because of that you change my life," reads the letter, in part.
The letter also revealed that the would-be robber converted to Islam.
"I'm really thrilled," Sohail told the Post. "I'm very happy for that guy, because he is now doing good for the community."
To read more, go to the New York Post.

Yeahh, I know the robbery was real but the letter itself could have been sent from somebody else? I mean, there's no real way to ascertain that it was in fact from the robber right?

Everyone that saw it on the news, of course. People like you and me. :D

Although in the video clip, the anchor did say there was also $50 sent alongside the letter, so it might be legit afterall.

it was shown after the letter arrived not before.. there was no reason for him to share a robbery tape if nothing came of it..

and Allah swt knows best
it was nice of the Muslim guy anyway to give him bread and money even if nothing came of it, but something did wal7mdlillah..

هَلْ جَزَاء الْإِحْسَانِ إِلَّا الْإِحْسَانُ

Then is the reward for goodness anything but goodness?
