Assalaamu Alaikum In the name of Allah the most mercifull and the most compassionate, greetings in the name of Allah.. I do recognised the surprise this letter will bring to you, most especially as it comes from a stranger .I am Mrs Aminah Jilani from Bahrain, i am 68 yrs old, I am married to Engr.Ghulam Jilani who worked in Ivorien oil refinery company in Cote d' Ivoire, before he retired in the year 2004. He died in the year 2006, after a brief illness that lasted for only two weeks. Before his death we were both devoted muslims, We were married for 38 years without a child.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $12.7Million, in a finance company here in Abidjan Cote d' Ivoire for safe keeping. Presently,my Doctor confirmed to me that I have a terminal sickness which is cancer of the lung. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke illness which had defied every medical solution, which i had been trying to cope with.Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to a muslem institutions or an individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a muslim institution that will use this fund for orphanages,helping the widows, propagating the word of the almighty Allah and to endeavor that the society upholds the belief and faith in the almighty Allah . The holy Quaran made us to understand that lessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don? have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not muslims and I don? want my husband? efforts to be used by unbelievers. I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the almight Allah the most mercifull and the most beneficient. As stated in the holy Quaran (Surah xxxvi Yasin) Thou wariest only him who followeth the reminder and feareth the beneficient in secret to him bear tiding of forgives and a rich reward. I dont need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health, hence the presence of my husband? relatives around me always. I don? want them to know about this development. With almighty Allah all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I will give you the contact of the finance company here in Abidjan, Cote d' Ivoire. I want you and the muslim community to always pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulations. Whoever Wants to serve the almighty Allah must serve him in truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another institution or individual for this same purpose.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. and again, due to the present condition of my health,I was warned by my doctor to avoid receiving or making any call.I have all the information of the deposit with me. As soon as I hear from you , if satisfied. i will issue a letter of authority to the finance company authorizing them that the fund have been willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you. you can reach me with this my private email address; Mrs Aminah Jilani.
