Empower Shafiqa: A Mother of 3 Struggles to Provide For Her Family
or donate via
Shafiqa Ameira Binti Airizam
Mrs. Shafiqa rents with her family at the Taman Kempas Permai ‘Program Perumahan Rakyat’ (PPR) with a monthly rent of RM 124.
Her husband previously worked at Metro Parking Larkin Sentral with an income of RM 1,200 but was laid off during the lockdown and now works at Metro Parking Plaza Pelangi with an income of a mere RM 1,000. Mrs. Shafiqa runs a business selling fruit cocktails online to supplement her household income. As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, sales of her fruit cocktails decreased by 30%.
Waqaf An-Nur has collaborated with Farm Fresh to help micro-entrepreneurs like Mrs. Shafiqa in terms of financial assistance to expertise training. Under their guidance, Mrs. Shafiqa will undergo training in marketing, setting up and registration of business in order to develop and nurture her entrepreneurship skills. Mrs. Shafiqa is determined to become more independent, hoping that she will be able to provide financial support to her family.
Donations from this campaign will help Mrs. Shafiqa get started to work as a Farm Fresh dairy agent and work towards a better tomorrow.
Mrs. Shafiqa is a living example of the hadith of the Prophet ﷺ regarding those who try to work to earn a Halal and respectable income instead of begging others. At GlobalSadaqah our mission is to empower such people so that they go from becoming beneficiaries to benefactors themselves. This is the core of our mission to #CirculateGood.
Even the smallest of donations count. Allah loves all those who give and help remove a difficulty of a fellow Muslim. The donations from this campaign not only help Mrs. Shafiqa set up a decent business but will also help bring smiles and mental peace to a needy family.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “It is better for one among you to bring a load of firewood on his back and give charity out of it (and satisfy his own need) and be independent of people, than that he should beg from people, whether they give him anything or refuse him. Verily the upper hand is better than the lower hand, and begin (charity) with your dependents. [Muslim]
