 Dear Friend.

As you read this,I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I
believe everyone will die someday. My name is Khaled Arraf, a merchant in Safat,in (Kuwait)I
was married with two children.
My wife and two children died in a car accident six years a go
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 
I believe when God 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 God 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. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul. 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 
distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. 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 twenty six million united states 
dollars that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this 
deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside only 10 % for you and for your 

God be with you.
