Singapore – A kind-hearted taxi driver is warming the hearts of many for accommodating the traditions of his passengers and ensuring that they are comfortable.

On Saturday (May 9), Facebook page All Singapore Stuff shared a short clip of a “Chinese man who has touched the heart” of his passenger with his kindness. The contributor provided five reasons why:

1. The first thing he checked when I boarded his car was the time, and he realized that it’s less than 10 minutes to breaking of fast.
2. He asked me which radio channel that plays the azan (the Muslim call to ritual prayer made by a muezzin).
3. He assured me that it’s ok to break my fast in his car.
4. He drove really fast until we heard the azan and he slowed down.
5. He constantly ensured that I am comfortable and able to hear the radio well.

“I am in awe of how Allah allowed me to feel His mercy and love in this way,” said the passenger.

Others shared similar experiences in Singapore where the traditions of other races were upheld. “Can I say this…only in Singapore!” exclaimed Eid Hassan. The netizen mentioned the time when McDonald’s aired the azan during the month of fasting. “To the Chinese uncle, I’m so proud of you sir and because of people like you and the extra mile you took that made me even prouder to be a Singaporean.”
