"i always suspect those beggars are rich"

LOL same here I always hear stories about rich beggars and things like that, but this is the first time I get my hands on any visual evidence :P.

I was laughing my head off too :)))

"where were these pictures taken?"

I really don't know what country it was taken in, it doesn't say in the origianl post, here is a link to the original post that was emailed to me.
It was taken from this website which usually has funny Arabic videos and cartoons ..........

Salam PH,
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, what makes someone wake up one day and say, "hey I've got a great idea for a job. I'm going to portray the image of a poor incapable human-being and play on the mercy of those compassionately sensitive folks that will graciously give me their money".

You know honestly, I use to fail to believe what people would say about "them" being really rich and just praying on the sympathy of others. I use to believe they were truly down on their luck and never gave it a second thought of giving "them" something. However, as they say, "proof is in the pudding" because these pictures say an awful lot.

Although to be honest, I will probably continue to do so when I feel it's right because Allah knows the truth of my intentions as well as the truth of the individual's intentions, and thankfully it's in Allah's hands to judge and not mine, alhamdullilah.

OMG that reminds me of somethig happened to me at uni .. there is this women that begs for ages lol .. so she asked me for money and iw as sick of her so i said " ok we're students and we take money from our parents so go beg somewhere else but for me !! if u have money then give me !!!" lol " i was mad "
she left and after like 20 min someone came to me from my back and was like " e7m e7m " i turned and that was her again and she said " ok so how much money do u want ???"

so see they DO have money but they should be in holywood actting coz they r just soo good in acting !!

astaghfir allah !!

thanks for sharing thought ;)

Well, I have heard so many stories about children of rich beggars and things like that, so the pictures came as no surprise to me .....

But I'm a bit like you I still like to give now and then when I feel that the person in front of me is really needy, although I hold back when I feel that the beggar is physically capable of working so as to not encourage him to continue begging ....

salaam

@ piccolina :

You commented when I did and I totally missed you :P. ( my previous comment was for ibeebarbie :) ).


"so see they DO have money but they should be in holywood actting coz they r just soo good in acting !!"

Yeah they do have money ... I heard a story that used to go around a lot in Benghazi about a beggar who took a taxi home, then she asked the taxi driver to wait for her in front of her home so he could take her to a wedding.

When she came out she was fully dressed in traditional Libyan Silk clothes and with complete Gold sets the really old expensive, traditional type that covers the whole torso and there are many other stories like that .... I think a lot of the beggars start out poor though, then when they make a lot of money from begging they just don't stop and never think about getting a job because they've gotten used to the humiliation of begging ( even though there isn't much of that in Libya - humiliation- ) and the money is good and they've become lazy so they become dependent on it as a source of income ....

"thanks for sharing thought ;)"

You're welcome :).

salaam and thanks for passing by :P

This man should be A S H A M E D of himself! Phooey!

On the other hand, I admit I could think of something similar, if this was the only way to survive for me and my family...but this guy obviously has plenty since he has a nice car to drive away in. What a shame!

@ a.adam :

Yes they do, like taxi drivers, I guess there is a spy everywhere :p.

@ safia :

"I admit I could think of something similar, if this was the only way to survive for me and my family"

Thats exactly it given that he has that type of car he doesn't seem desperate :) so he is just being a parasite .

salaam
