Long Island store owner who gave money and food to would-be robber died last Friday


The kindhearted Long Island convenience-store owner who last year shot to global fame for giving a would-be robber money and food died of a heart attack last Friday, The Post has learned.

Mohamad Sohail, 48, subdued a bat-wielding intruder with a shotgun at his since-shuttered Shirley store but took pity on the man, who claimed financial desperation drove him to crime.

Sohail, who was revered in his community for unwavering kindness and generosity, gave him $40 and a loaf of bread before the man fled the store.

Video of the remarkable exchange propelled the devout Muslim to fame across the world.

Sohail was taken to Stony Brook Medical Center last Friday with chest pains but died there.

This is so sad . . . it seems just not too long ago that we were discussing his kind act on the board . . . . not only does time fly, but it runs out soon . . .

May Allah (swt) Reward for this good deed and all others during his term on this Earth. Ameen.
