I remember meeting Hajja Surraya Salim many years ago in London a very sweet elderly Pakistani lady with a great love for Allah.
Hajja Surraya married at a young age and moved to the U.K. after her retirement she would always say I want to do something to benefit the Muslims what can I do.
She posed this question to the late Mawlana Wazanni r.a who,s reply was who established the Al Karaouine in Fez and the great educational and social institutions of Turkey a great majority of them were founded by women
Women are capable of many things you have a lot of work to do.
That started her mind working and asking herself what can I do alone, after a lot of soul searching and dua she was taken back to the land of her birth, where she purchased some land in the district of Kasoor near Sindhukalan it is a district with small villages where many of the children had no access to a basic education and many of the women had no access to general health care.
She started by building a Quranic madrassa and clinic for women and conviced some doctors to come in a few days a week to treat the local women for free.
Over the years it has developed into becoming a school for more than 200 children which a separate school for boys and is of great service to the local community. ” she quotes and my fear of being alone I am never alone either in the night or day. Allah (s.w.a) in the most generous.
This was achieved by an elderly woman in her 70s in a rural area of Pakistan where is can be very difficult to anything as a woman. She persevered with all the difficulties her intention was pure she is greatly loved by all the villagers.
Allah s.w.a is the One who give success.
