In response to the Masjid that was vandalized in Texas this young boy donates all of his money! Bless him.



A 7-year-old boy recently donated all the money in his piggy bank to a Texas mosque that was vandalized in what police are saying is a hate crime, an official from the house of worship said.

The Islamic Center of Pflugerville was hit by a vandal who left torn pages of the Koran smeared with feces outside the entrance, police said. The vandalism was found early Monday morning by a congregant.

The young donor, Jack Swanson, went to the mosque that afternoon and handed over his money -- $20 that had originally been collected in the form of pennies over time, according to Faisal Naeem, one of the mosque's board members.

"Jack's $20 are worth $20 million to us because it's the thought that counts," Naeem told ABC News today. "Jack is just a little older than my son, Ibrahim. If we have more kind-hearted kids like them in the world, I have hope for our future."

Heart warming, encouraging, and adorable all at the same time. This is exactly the sort of thing I like to see when it comes to interfaith relations :)

I my humble opinion, people confuse good behaviour towards other believers or human in general with accepting their ideology. That are two pairs of shoes. I may have different views on certain topics, but when I am kind to another person of the 'opposite' belief that doesn't mean I have to change my viewpoint or accepted his. Just be nice to each other and the whole world will change!
