Assalam Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
Dearest Beloved in Islam,
May the love and mercy of Allah(SWT) Almighty be upon you and may he grant us high places in Al-junat Amin. I pray that this message of mine finds you in the best state of health and Imaan. I thank you very much for accepting my call, I pray that the almighty will open your heart to what I am about to say.
I am Mrs Azizat Lateef, named person from Kuwait. I am married to Late Mallam Hassan Lateef of blessed memory who worked with Kuwait embassy in Sudan for nine years before he died in the year 2006. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both very devoted muslims. Since his death I too have been battling with both cancer and fibroid problems. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $7 Million (Seven Million U.S. Dollars) with an Oversea Security Company in Europe.
Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either a muslim organisation or devoted muslim individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here-in. I want this muslim organisation or individual to use this money in all sincererity to lay a fundation to assist mosques, orphanages, widows and also propagating the word of ALLAH and to ensure that the society upholds the views and beliefs of the holy Quran.
The holy Quran emphasized so much on ALLAH'S benevolence and this has encouraged me to take this bold step. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are new Christians converts and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by people I call unbelievers. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with ALLAH the most beneficient and the most merciful. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and also the presence of my husband's relatives around me always.
I don't want them to know about this development, With ALLAH all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply on email@example.com I shall give you the contact of the Security Company. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the Muslim community where you reside to always pray for me.
Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders.
May the almighty ALLAH continue to guide you
Your sister in Islam
Fatima Azizat Lateef
