This totally cracks me up… I received the following email today…
Greetings in the name of Allah, the most beneficent,the most merciful. My name is Mrs Halima Abdulahi Mohammed, a widow to Late Mr Hassan A. Mohammed I am 74years old, Presently I am suffering from long time cancer of the breast, […going to die, don’t have any kids… yada, yada, yada…] My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth, […still going to die… yada, yada, yada…]
So now i have decided to divide part of this wealth,to contribute to the propagation of Islam and in assisting the less-privileged Muslim faithful and all humanity in Africa and through out the Muslim world,
Wait.. wait… the best part is coming up…
Because it’s clear from my site that I am a Muslim faithful that does lots of this type of charity work.
Lastly I honestly pray that this money when transferred will be used for the said purpose because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Allah is vanity upon vanity.for this reason I have decided to set-aside 40% of this money for the service of humanity and the work of Allah.
May the Grace of Allah be our guide and be my refuge when i leave this world. Moreso,I decided to offer you 30% While 20% will be transfered to the account of my Lawyer, Barrister Alwal Sadique as compensation after successful conclusion. The remaining 10% is to cover the expenses […]
Yours in Allah,
Mrs Halima Abdulahi Mohamed.
Wait, now I’m confused, I thought *I* was going to be doing the charity work… why is she setting aside the extra 40% for? Frankly, I am a little hurt, she has *clearly* done her due diligence when she chose me… she even prayed on it!
Oh well, the next time I am in Dubai, I will be sure to follow up on this fantastic opportunity to help my Muslim brothers!
