This is my testimonial regarding’ House of Sakina’. In 2013 One day , I was homeless with my 18 month old daughter. My Husband and all In Laws got furious and they decided not to keep me at home any more. So I was kicked out with my little daughter. I was new in Sydney. I did not know much people . My only friends circle was combined of my In Laws. At that very moment, no one was willing to keep me and my little daughter. I was homeless, familyless and job less. And at the same time my daughter was extremely sick. I was feeling extremely devastated . At that moment I was only praying and praying to get some kind of help. As I had no accommodation, no support.
Out of great embarrassment, fear and confusion . I contacted one of friend and told her my story that me and my daughter are on the road . We dont know where to go. At that moment, She gave me ‘House of Sakina ‘ contact number. I called that number. At that moment I talked with Firdausi Aunti. I told her my situation. She assured me of her help. With great difficulty me and my daughter reached ‘ House of Sakina’ as I was totally —~ unaware of Sydney suburbs. But thanks to all team of House of Sakina, especially Firdausi Aunti, they were like angels to me at that extremely difficult situation. I stayed at house of Sakina for few nights. Its like a hope and miracle for homeless, troubled women and children.
I could have never survive here without initial support of ‘House of Sakinah . They gave me shelter plus emotional, moral and financial support. And they have been supporting me in every difficult moment up till now. I really admire the concept of making this kind of place for women and children in crisis, especially those who are new to this country and not familiar with Australian system. After going through this extremely critical situation and deeply inspired by noble, dedicated team of House of Sakinah, I have made this my mission in life to support women and children in trouble and crisis and to serve community in the near future by becoming team of ‘House of Sakina’ . So we can spread more Khair for people ir1 need. May Allah accept ‘ all their endeavours and put barkat in their noble cause.
And because of Allah’s Almighty help who makes Waseela for every human being I am about to fi11ish my studies and Msc from University and in the process of starting my job lnshaAllah . So this is my journey from being homeless and on the road to standing on my own feet. Alhamduliah.
