I bring you greetings in the name of Almighty Allah and Thanks for the salvation of his messager Prohet Mohammed. I am Mrs. kadra fatme from Kuwait. I am married to late Mr.Umaru Ibrahim kadra, who worked with Kuwait Embassy in Ivory Coast for Twenty-eight years before he died in the year 2002, after a brief illness that lasted for only Six days. We were married for Nine years with a daughter (Sonia) who later died in a motor accident. Before the untimely death of my husband, we were both devoted Muslims. Since after his death I lost happiness, and decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Holy Quran is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of(US$4.5M) (Four million five hundred thousand United States Dollars) in a general trust account with a Prime Bank in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire. Presently this money is still with the bank. Recently, following my ill health, my doctor told me that I may not last for the next four months despite all that is my possession due to my cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my severe stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Muslim organization (mosque) that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein, according to the desire of my late husband before his death. According to my husband before he died, I want this fund to be used in Muslims Activities like, Orphanages, less privileged, Muslim schools, and Mosque for propagating the word of Allah and to endeavor that the house of Allah is maintained. The Holy Quran made us to understand that, "Whosoever fear Allah and keep his duty for him he will make a way for him to get out of every difficulty and he will provide him from every sources he could never imagined and whosoever put his trust in Allah then he will suffice him"(Al-Quran 65:2-3) I took this bold decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money I don't want a situation where this money will be used in a way that will offend the almighty Allah. This is why 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 almighty Allah. The Holy Quran made it clear that, as a righteous Muslim, Allah will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I am presently placed on dialysis check up and i donít need telephone communication in this regard because of my husband relatives always around me, they have selfishly sold all my husband properties. To make matters worst some of his relations been converted to christainity.As soon as I receive your reply through this address : email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> I will give you the contact of the bank. I will also issue you the documents that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. The Holy Quran says if any do deeds of righteousness be they male or female and have faith, they will enter Paradise and not the least injustice will be done to them(Al-Quran 4:124) I want you and my Muslim brothers and community to always pray for me because the almighty Allah is my guide. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy devoted Muslim. And I know my destination whoever that wants to serve Allah must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always pray for me in the name of the almighty Allah the most compassionate and most merciful. Yours Faithfully, Madam. Kadra fatme
