Transfer ticket(s)

I came back from visiting my family today and took the metro from the bus terminal to the closest metro station to my building, which is only two blocks. As before you cross the gates at the metro there is a machine where if you press on a button you get a transfer ticket -free bus ticket, and because I have a small carry-on bag I decided I’d get a ticket. As I was going towards the gates someone in front of the ticket gate asked me, “is it possible for you to get me one of those tickets?”… I hesitated for seconds, he didn’t look like a complete homeless, though there are some homeless look good and no one would tell from their look that they are actually homeless. I gave him my ticket and got a new one.

I don’t know if I should not have given him that ticket. I also wonder what would be the case if the man at the ticket booth on the far left side noticed me.

What do you think you would you do if you were in my situation?

My first visit here, obviously will not be the last embraced by the layout and alafassi's crystal clear voice.
Really I can't tell what would I do if I were in ur shoes,these kind of situations u can't give an absolute perfect response, it depends, and I am sure that u have done what u felt was right in that very moment of time. And u know the believer is guided by his heart قلب المؤمن دليله.
I am sure that u have done what supposed to be done.
Be careful about sleeping in the bus, it is not always safe :)this ws for ur previous post.
Take good care of urself girl.
