In a Facebook post, he wrote that he found a bundle of foreign currency on Monday.

He hung a handwritten sign around his neck, saying “Some African France [franc] found”, and searched for the owner near Al-Masjid an-Nabawi.

A citizen of Burkina Faso claimed it was his money, and gave proof in favour of his claim.

An official of Bangladesh Hajj Mission in Medina said that such a noble gesture by a Bangladeshi certainly brightens the country’s image in Saudi Arabia.

“We are trying to locate the Bangladeshi haji to appreciate his great deed,” he added.
