About Hashim Bin Maidin
Hashim is a Roti Canai seller from Malim Nawar, Perak.
– Hashim is a disabled person having a defect in his legs (both legs are weak from the waist down).
– He is married and had two children.
– Hashim receives RM400.00 as an Elaun Pekerja Cacat (allowance) per month from Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat.
– Due to many financial constraints and his disability, Hashim is looking to become independent from relying upon people for handouts and wishes to empower himself by starting his own small food business.
Hashim runs a small food stall where he sells Malaysian favourite, Roti Canai in Perak. He is assisted by his wife, who helps in cooking, preparing and packaging the food.
Hashim earns about RM500-800 only in a month. Most of this income is also spent in trying to meet the utmost basic necessities to support his family. Hardly anything is left to add back into the business or medical needs. Satisfying one need means depriving another.
Hashim’s stall is in a good location to get customers for lunch. Due to lack of funds and their minimal equipment he is not able to meet the customer demand. Hashim and his wife want to be able to make more Roti Canai so that they can sell larger quantities and meet the demands of their customers.
Hashim is trying his best to do more to get more customers and make sure the existing customers come back for more business. Doing this will allow him to be financially independent and not rely on others for constant help because of his medical condition.
Hashim hopes that after all the struggle he has to go through daily with his medical condition, he can provide his children a chance at education without having to worry about poverty and daily expenses. He hopes that when his children have completed their studies, they will become the pillars to support the family. As a father, he is trying his best to support and meet all the necessary costs so that his children can focus on their studies.
An inspiring man whose hard-work, honest, and zeal to work should be supported by all of us.
Through your donations and help, Hashim can buy better tools, raw material and equipment like a larger mixer to increase the number of Roti Canai he can sell in a day.
The donations will help Hashim to cover the business expenses instead of using up his daily income. He will be able to use his daily income to take care of his family and pay for his medical treatment.
To make sure that your donations reach their maximum potential, Hashim will undergo a special training course that will help teach and enhance his skills in running a business. This includes:
– Cooking Course
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: It is better for one among you to bring a load of firewood on his back and give charity out of it (and satisfy his own need) and be independent of people, than that he should beg from people, whether they give him anything or refuse him. Verily the upper hand is better than the lower hand, and begin (charity) with your dependents. [Muslim]
Hashim is a living example of the hadith of the Prophet ﷺ regarding those who try to work to earn a Halal and respectable income instead of begging others.
At GlobalSadaqah our mission is to empower such people so that they go from becoming beneficiaries to benefactors themselves. This is the core of our mission to Circulate Good.
Even the smallest of donations count. Allah loves all those who give and help remove a difficulty of a fellow Muslim.
The donations from this campaign not only help Hashim set up a decent business but will also help relieve the stress upon a family whose sole breadwinner has such a grave medical condition.
