They say our society continues to grow harsher as the days go by.
Nonetheless, human kindness remains, and we will never run out of reasons why.
For the past two years, the cost of living in Malaysia has risen rapidly. Sustaining a moderate lifestyle has become difficult. Just imagine the situation of those below the poverty line.
But despite all this, one man with a big heart was able to do this beautiful deed that will surely warm you.
Ashraff Khan thought it would just be another usual day when he went about to run his errands one Friday afternoon. He was about to get petrol for his motorcycle whe he saw something which caught his attenion.
"In the afternoon when I was returning (to work) after my break, I stopped by BHP Mutiara Damansara to fill petrol."
"On the way to BHP, there was actually a Petronas station but I don’t know why my heart and mind was set on going to BHP."
"God’s plans are beautiful and accurate," he emphasized.
"As I arrived at BHP, I went to the counter to make payment and noticed a lady slowly walking in."
"The lady walked back and forth in the store, looking at bread, snacks, Maggi, and then placed them back. In the end, she took a 500ml water bottle and went to the counter to pay with an RM5 note. Then, she walked out towards a tree next to BHP."
Ashraff has a big heart for people and it clearly showed.
"My heart was racing ‘dup dap dup dap’. I wanted to know if she has eaten, why did she put back that Maggi Cup just now. I asked a BHP worker if they knew the lady? The person said they know the lady and she will occasionally buy mineral water here."
Politely, he decided to approach the lady who has sat under the tree.
"Asalaamualikum makcik, I want to ask why did you put back the Maggi Cup you were holding in BHP just now? Have you eaten?" he asked.
But the lady's reply broke Ashraff.
"Wsalam. Oh the Maggi was expensive to eat today. I’m only left with RM5 to last me until my next pay arrives," the woman told him.
"As we arrived back in BHP, I asked her to take anything she wanted to eat. It doesn’t matter, anything is alright. But… she only took the Maggi Cup from earlier, and orange juice and 2 Gardenia wafer bread. She said it was enough for today."
Ashraff learned about the Azizah's story while she ate. Azizah said that she was from Langkawi, where she worked as a street cleaner receiving only RM700 monthly. She has three children and was left by her husband.

According to her, she is now living in a room with a few other Indonesian workers after her husband sold their land and left her.
"Thank you god for choosing me to help those who are in need. As long as I can afford to, I will continue to help."
"Before leaving, I got to salam Azizah. God willing, I will meet you again and pass you some groceries. 'Kak Azizah, the Maggi is not expensive, let me pay for you.'"
Ashraff's kindness did not end there. He also bought two cartons of cup noodles for the woman and a lot of other grocery items too. He even treated her to a delicious plate of mee goreng.
Thanks to people like Ashraff, many people's faith in humanity is restored.
