A Stranger Left Me This Note at Starbucks And Brought Tears to my Eyes

By Shaden

Salam Everyone!

Now these days we get a lot of hatred comments for being a Muslim.. I would like to share with you guys something amazing that happened with me earlier today that broke me to tears!

I was sitting at Starbucks studying for my exam and after a while a nice lady that works there approached me with a gift card and a note and said it was for me from the guy that was sitting behind me, and who had just left couple of minutes ago!

As I started reading the letter I just couldn’t stop tearing! It was soo sweet of him! Subhanallah There is really still good people out there! I hope he sees this and I wish I can just meet him & thank him personally and tell him that I really appreciate this! God Bless him and his family!

Here is the text of the note:

Good Morning!

Hope you are having a nice day. I know that it can be very difficult to be a Muslim-American in our country (especially in the south) given the recent media hype & political rhetoric. I sincerly hope you have been able to avoid any hate or animosity and rise above any passing judgements.
Just in case you haven’t, I wanted to buy you a cup of coffee to show you that not everyone’s initial reaction is hate. I hope that you never get down or give up on your dream due to discouragements of the shortminded. Shoot for the stars!
All the best,
You new friend
