Mosque Pays Fines For Man Who Vandalized Their Building

Abraham Davis could have gone to jail for a long time if it had not been for the very people who he was pitted against in the first place.

Back in October 2016, the CCTV cameras at the Masjid Al Salam mosque captured Davis vandalizing the Arkansas building with spray paint.

Davis was charged with community service and a hefty fine – one that he couldn’t afford to pay.

“We knew this person did a bad thing and there has to be consequences for their actions. But we didn’t have any ill feelings towards anybody,” President of Al Salam Louay Nassri told KARK.

“We heard that he was having financial problems. Now if you don’t pay your fine, that’s an automatic six years in jail. Well, we didn’t want him to go to jail for six years.”

In an inspiring show of forgiveness, the mosque then wrote Davis a check to cover the fine.
