This is Dr Omar Atiq, a Muslim doctor who decided to wipe out medical fees of cancer patients on the New Year’s Eve after realizing many of them were unable to pay the bills.
Dr Atiq told American news channels, “Over time, I realized that there are people who just are unable to pay. So my wife and I, as a family, we thought about it and looked at forgiving all the debt.”
He forgave the bills of over 20 patients, which equalled over $650,000 Subhan’Allah! This beautiful act reminds us of the Hadith: The Prophet (saw) said, ‘The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to people. The most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove one of his troubles, or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger’. [al Mu’jam al Awsat]
May Allah swt reward him and his loved ones!
