M’sian Siblings Build New House For Mother To Thank Her For Raising Them

What an awesome way of saying thank you!
Children express love and appreciation for their parents in different ways, such as buying them gifts or treating them to a sumptuous meal.

A group of siblings in Sarawak raised the bar to a whole new level by building an entirely new house for their single mother to live in as a way to thank her for raising them.

Speaking to NST, Fikri said he and his brother saved up and managed to secure a bank loan that would aid them in fulfilling their dream of making a new home for their 63-year-old mother, Dayang Sarimah Awang Ibrahim.

My father passed away when my mother was eight months pregnant with me, and since then, she has raised us single-handedly, initially as a restaurant assistant, before taking a job as a student management assistant.

“With her income, she always tried to provide the best for the four of us, focusing on our needs rather than on house repairs,” he said.

Fikri added that while he and his siblings were emotional to see their mother express happiness over the new house, he said it was nevertheless “satisfying” to be able to do something for her while she was still around.

Was initially reluctant to let old house go

Fikri told the English daily that his mother was rather reluctant at the beginning to see the old house go as she still had fond memories of it and wanted to spare her children the trouble of constructing a new one.

“But eventually, she grave in. The construction began in July last year and was completed just a day before Hari Raya Aidilfitri,” he said, adding that the new house was built on the same piece of land that the old house formerly occupied.

Fikri also said that the house had four rooms and hotel-like bathrooms, which were specially requested by his mother.

Meanwhile, Dayang said renovating the house was never on her mind as her primary focus was ensuring that her children received an education and meeting their needs.

“Losing my husband when the children were still young was very challenging, and at that time I had no steady income. My children are a responsibility and a trust from Allah for me to care for and educate them properly.”
