Speaking on winning the Bushra Half yearly draw he said: “This is the first time that I have won a cash amount and for it to be such a significant amount is truly a dream come true. What gives me assurance and comfort is that the money of these prizes are Shari’a compliant and a gift from the shareholders’ funds. I am overjoyed that my Bushra account has brought good tidings.”
