Assalamu alaikum I do recognise the surprise this letter will bring to you, most especially as it comes from a stranger. I am Madam Abibatu Usman from Guinea Bissau, I am married to Dr.sanusi Usman who worked with France embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2005 We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only two weeks. Before his death we were both faithful Muslim. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the holy Quaran is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($2.8Million U.S. Dollars) with the security company here in Abidjan Presently, the fund is still with the security company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Islamic institution or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a Islamic that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of mighty Allah and to endeavour that the house of mighty Allah is maintained. The holy Quaran made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I donít have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Muslim and I donít want my husbandís efforts to be used by unbelievers. I donít 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 almighty Allah. As stated in the holly Quaran (Surah xxxvi Yasin) Thou worriest only him who followeth the reminder and feareth the benefit in secret to him bear tiding of forgives and a rich reward. I donít need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husbandís relatives around me always. I donít want them to know about this development. With mighty Allah all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company here in Abidjan. I want you and the Islamic institution to always pray for me because the almighty Allah is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Muslim. Whoever that wants to serve the mighty Allah must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Contact me on the above e-mail address for more information; any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another Islamic or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply. in my private box email@example.com Regards Mrs Abibatu Usman
