The Beggar in front of Baiturrahman Mosque

Do you see the woman who is praying in the picture? She is a beggar. The picture was taken in front of Baiturrahman Mosque, the greatest mosque in Aceh.

Yesterday, I went to Baiturrahman Mosque to do dhuhur prayer. After praying, I sat in the porch of the mosque. There, I saw an old woman praying on the floor. There was a bucket in front of her. The people put the money into that bucket. Yeah, that old woman was a beggar who begged money from others. Not only yesterday I saw her sit down in front of Baiturrahman Mosque, but also every day.

Sometime, I ask to myself, why the people become the beggar? Do they know that working by themself is better than putting down their hands and begging help from others?

So, if they have already known that giving to others is better than asking from them, why that old woman and her friends still become the beggar?
