A tweet recounting kind gesture of a Dublin hotel during Ramadan has triggered a string of heart touching stories from Muslims around the world. A Twitter user named Hemant Buch decided to share how his Muslim colleague was surprised to receive a whole breakfast buffet when he had asked the hotel he was staying at for a light Suhoor snack.

A muslim colleague asked our hotel if they could give him a snack before he began his fast. They said ok, please come down at 2.30 am. When he went, he found a FULL BUFFET BREAKFAST laid out. The hotel said it was rhe least they could do. @Accorhotels be proud of Ibis Dublin

Buch's tweet went viral with thousands of Muslims sharing their stories about heartwarming gestures by non-Muslims during the holy month. One Twitter user named Babar Ahmad shared his story and said how his 14-year-old nephew's teachers, who were non-Muslims, woke up at 3:00 am to prepare food for 10 fasting boys during their school field trip.

Something similar for me at four seasons Washington DC last Ramadan not a full buffet but a ridiculous tray despite the items not being on overnight menu- I nearly cried. The tray came with a Ramadan Mubarak card. Some folks just get it right.
