It was the last thing these Muslim families expected while dining out in America’s Deep South on Christmas Eve — a stranger’s random act of kindness was like a “light” in the darkness.
Eslam Mohamed was enjoying himself in a party of seven adults and five children at a local Olive Garden restaurant in Augusta, Georgia.

When the waitress brought the check at the end of the meal, it was marked, “Paid. Merry Christmas, Beautiful Family.”
He says it was clear to everyone in the restaurant they were Arab Muslims since the women were wearing head scarves.
Mohamed wrote on his Facebook page that despite all the suspicions and political rhetoric about Muslims in America, the gesture shows “there is still light in the dark, there is still hope within the frustration.”
They had no idea who the generous stranger was.
“All what I can say to who did that,” Mohamed wrote, “Merry Christmas to you too and God bless such a beautiful heart you have.”
