TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Nur Hasanah's daily life is a testament to resilience and determination. With determinationshe managed to go for Makkah and do Hajj 2024.

Assisted by her husband, who can no longer work due to a stroke, she sells krupuk renteng at the market from 3 AM until 9:30 AM every day.

“Alhamdulillah, we were blessed. My husband used to help with farming. But now, he can't work anymore because of his stroke,” Nur Hasanah shared on Saturday, May 24, 2024.

Despite the uncertain income from selling krupuk, Nur Hasanah remains enthusiastic and grateful. Her business has grown to the point where she can now employ others to help with the frying and packaging process.

“Alhamdulillah, I can now employ people to help me fry and pack the krupuk,” she explained.

Nur Hasanah proudly states that the krupuk she sells are made, fried, and packaged by herself, with raw materials sourced from Sidoarjo.

Nur Hasanah faces physical challenges due to a pinched nerve, causing her to walk with a limp. Yet, she remains determined to embark on her pilgrimage to Makkah. Despite her doctor's recommendation for surgery, she has chosen to postpone it to fulfill her dream of going on hajj with her husband.

“The doctor advised me to have surgery, but I refused because I want to go on hajj,” Nur Hasanah stated, as reported by the official website of the East Java Ministry of Religious Affairs.

She reminisces about the beginning of their hajj journey in 2011, when they didn't have enough money to register.

With the help of BMT Syariah, Nur Hasanah secured a hajj funding loan and managed to repay it within a year. While waiting for their departure, she consistently saved money at BMT every day.

“At that time, I had eleven million rupiahs, but I needed fourteen million more. So, I borrowed from BMT and managed to repay the loan within a year,” she explained.

Every day, she saved between five thousand to ten thousand rupiahs, and on holidays, she saved for two days' worth.

Originally planning to go on hajj with her husband and mother, fate had other plans as her mother passed away. Now, as she prepares for the pilgrimage, she vows to pray for her mother’s peace and for the health and recovery of herself and her husband.

Nur Hasanah's story is one of enduring spirit and unwavering faith, embodying the essence of perseverance against all odds especially during this Hajj 2024. (*)
