That was the question she asked me before she and her friends started to blast the news in their Facebook, Watsapp and other media.
Alhamdulillah, as expected, aids came from all over. Loads of food, cleaning detergents, diapers for babies, cloathing for all ages, blankets, pillows, mattresses for babies and adults..... just name it! One came up with sponsoring the transportations for carrying the goods to destination. Amazing!
After two weeks of collecting, on the 18th of December 2013, my daughter Hana, her husband Muhammad A'sim with a group of 16 , drove in four 4WD followed by 2 lorries towards Pekan, Pahang.
Upon reaching, they unloaded everything from the lorries and started to divide as much as they can equally to be given to the victims. They got help from the locals but most of the jobs were done by themselves.... the 16 of them. It must have been very tiring for them but those victims comes in the picture first..... everything else were pushed aside!
On second day, after the first distribution, my daughter called me. I knew that she was in tears when she explained how bad things were out there. How much the victims lost their belongings, the state of their homes with no food ..... she said, she felt so greatful to Allah for giving her all the goodness and rezeki in life. Masyallah....... I felt good when my daughter said that. She had to see it to feel it ! Where else, I had to face it to feel it! hahahhahhha.
As for my daughter and my son-in-law, I am so very proud of both of them and I hope that many more young men and women take the opportunity to do the same. I knew that many already did. Keep up the good job and with the right intention! A very big thank you to all who sponsored. May Allah bless you all with more rezeki and good health. For the victims, stop feeling sorry and angry. This is not caused by humans but a little reminder from Allah Subhanahu Wataala. He knows what is BEST for all of us. Be greatful that aids comes from throughout the country. You are not alone..... you are never left alone. The goverment is doing the best to help. So be patient! If you think you have lost everything, think of others who lost their family members! Remember that there are always people who faced worst scenario than yours. Help is on the way. Good luck!
