I am a father of 2 girls and also a husband of my wife. In our house I act as the head of the family and the main breadwinner. As a religious Muslim I always go to the mosque 5 times a day to pray. I also educate my wife and my children to always obey Allah's commands and stay away from His prohibitions. For more details about me, you can reach me at www.facebook.com/rmhinfotech
I am an entrepreneur who works as a dropshipper. I have 2 online stores in 2 famous marketplaces in Indonesia. I have been working as a dropshipper since 2015. At first my store sales were very good where there were always transactions almost every day. But now there are very few sales because my supplier is opening a store in the same marketplace as me with lower price. In addition, also because there are many competitors today. I could get around USD $ 100 per month from the sale of my online store when a new store was created in 2015, but now it's only around USD $ 50.
Besides being a dropshipper, I am also an independent social activist. I always set aside a portion of the profits from the sales to give donation to my father in-law, to my wife's aunt who suffered from stroke, and give donations to orphans and poor children, Palestinian and Syrian through several social humanitarian agencies in Indonesia (ex. Nurul Hayat, BMH, Kitabisa). Due to my difficult financial condition, at this time I cannot make a donation to my wife's aunt who suffered from stroke, orphans and poor children, and Palestinian and Syrian.
I have given back my mother's piece of land worth about USD $ 10,000 which she will give me. I love my mother and I think my mother needs more for living expenses and health care in her age which is getting older now (72 years).
Many people thought that we were not poor because there was an old car in my house. They did not know that the old car is owned by my father-in-law who left the car in my house because there was no car port in his house. About my house, it was a gift from my father after we got married. I have tried to sell my house but no one wants to buy it. Maybe because of the bad design and building of my house like a leaky chamfer, a lot of cracked walls and dull paint.
And not many neighbors and friends know except my parents, my brothers and sister that we are really poor because my wife and I rarely complain to them about our poverty. I also don't want to borrow money from usury (riba) institutions. For me it is better to die of hunger than to live with the sin of usury.
Today I only have Rp. 333.061 (around USD $ 24) in my bank account and only enough to survive until the end of this month. Whereas the minimum costs for living expenses such as food, children's school fees, electricity and water bills, motorcycle fuel, LPG are around USD $ 144 per month. If there is no income our family will all die. Actually we are ready to face death. But I feel sorry for people who routinely get help from me. What will be their fate if I die?
I almost do not believe in the brotherhood of fellow Muslims because based on my experience it is only in sermons at the mosque. In the mosque where I pray 5 times a day the takmir is more concerned about how to build a large and magnificent mosque while the welfare of people who regularly pray at the mosque is neglected. Therefore I want to find out through this site, is there a brotherhood of fellow Muslims in the world today?
I believe that only Allah can move the hearts of human to do good deeds. So if you are willing to help me, it means that Allah has provided His help through good people like you. So if I get aid from kind-hearted donors on this site, from the total amount of USD $ 9,000 that I submitted, insha Allah the usage plan is as follows:
- For venture capital is around USD $ 3,000
- For my family's living expenses is around USD $ 3,000
- School fees for 2 children are USD $ 2,000
- And the rest is to help fund my father-in-law, my wife's aunt who suffered a stroke, orphans and poor children, Palestinians, Syrians, Yemenis and others.
There is nothing I can do to reward your kindness except Jazakumullah Khayran Kathira. And insha Allah I will always pray for you in each of my midnight prayers so that Allah will reward your kindness with abundant goodness, healthy body, blessing of life and safety in this world and the hereafter.
I always try to be honest in my daily activities. I swear by Allah that everything I have written is true. I am ready to accept sanctions and torture in the world and in the hereafter if I am proven to lie.
