About Jamilah Bint Jamil

Mrs. Jamilah Bint Jamil is a mother of 4 who lives in Johor.

–  She suffers from partial paralysis after an accident at her work place. 
– She has undergone 3 major surgeries because of her paralysis. She cannot afford to pay for her followup operation. 
– Jamilah earns around RM 1000-1400 per month depending on the sales at her food stall. 

Story

Jamilah is a 40 years old disabled woman from Pasir Gudang, Johor. She suffered partial paralysis after an accident at her workplace. Her husband works as a factory operator in Masai, Johor with a monthly income of RM1500. She has 4 children to take care of, all of whom are still in school.

Today, Jamilah runs a small-scale food business. She is a very hardworking woman who tries her best to help her family despite her disability. On an average, she is able to earn around RM 1000 to RM 1400 per month depending on the number of customer’s she gets. According to her, the income earned every month (including husband’s income) is not enough for their family’s expenses when coupled with the medical expenses to treat her disability.

To date, Jamilah has undergone 3 operations. She is supposed to go through the fourth operation but she does not have sufficient funds to cover even a quarter of the expenses. On top of that, the hospital charges extra for the cost of treatment and the devices that are required to be inserted into her hips and legs. Due to the many financial constraints and her disability, Jamilah is determined to become independent and wishes to empower herself by expanding her own small food  stall (gerai makan) in front of her house.

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]

She hopes that when her children have completed their studies, they will become the pillars to support the family. As a mother, she is trying her best to support and meet all the necessary costs so that her children can focus on their studies properly. Such dedication is highly commendable and should be supported by us.

Jamilah 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 Jamilah set up a decent business but will also help bring smiles and mental peace to a needy family.
