Maqbool offers a night shift and was cleaning the first floor of the parking when he found a bag in one of the corners. When he opened it to inquire about its entries, he found out that a toolbox rested.

He did not open it further

The next day, no one came and one of the security personnel opened it to find it full of solid gold bars! Maqbool said that they were not sure whether it was gold or not, neither did they want to know as they had no intentions of keeping it with them.

He had no intention of keeping it

Maqbool says that he had no intention of keeping it: not even a single bar as he knew that the worth of this would not be equivalent to a single dirham earned through honesty. His father has raised him on the value of earning Halal income.

My father is a proud man today
