Assalammu'alaikum, Waramotuhu llahi Wabarakathuhu Praise Allah, The Most beneficient, The most merciful May Allah Swt always gives rahmat and barakah to the lord,lord families and countries,Amiin. As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mustafa Ibrahim a merchant in Dubai,in the U.A.E.I worked with Kuwait oil Company and eight years as a contractor,I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone(not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when Allah gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that the lord has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, and Algeria. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Five million dollars $5,000,000,00 that I have with a security Company abroad. Insha Allah I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the East or West, but it is righteousness to believe in Allaah, and the Last Day, and the angels, and the Books, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, the orphans, the needy, and to the wayfarer ..." [Quran; 2:177] By Allah I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosoms of the Lord.(Eidina Siratal Lmustakheem). Allah must be served in truth and fearness( Yah ayuah Ledhina Aamanu, Irjihi Illa Robika, Rodihatan, Mordihatan)..I shall give you more details once you reply this letter. May our good deeds be accepted and our sins be forgiven! May Allah guide us to all what is good in this world and the next! I have set aside 10% for you and additional 5% for your time.The lord be with you. Regards Mustafa Ibrahim
