A few days ago, Malaysians were humbled to see a group of non-Muslim volunteers helping to clean a mosque in Klang, Selangor, following the floods.
The volunteers helped to mop the outdoor prayer area and tidy up the furniture in the mosque.
Not too long after, another video that showed volunteers from Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) helping to clean a Hindu temple in Taman Klang Utama warmed the hearts of netizens.
The volunteers, consisting of students of the university, helped scrub and wash the floors of the Sri Maha Mariamman temple.

He praised the volunteers for helping each other regardless of race and religion.
The video was also shared by Malaysian cartoonist Zunar who used the video to show an example of the people taking care of one another.
