  1. The gift will be sincerely appreciated by many at Boston and all around the world. My mom and a few others I know survived breast cancer–I believe that this money will produce many dividends for Shamim and Ashraf.

  2. It is a great gesture from Shamim and Ashraf, to contribute their valuable wealth for the advancement of knowledge in breast cancer prevention and care of patients suffering from this disease.
    In present world we need philanthropy of this kind to help fight pain and sufferings of humans from diseases.
    Congratulations Shamim and Ashraf.
    Continue to innovate and act freely.

  3. It is wonderful that people like the Dohads are true philanthropists and work towards the progress and betterment of all of mankind. Kudos to them for showing through their actions the true teachings of Islam and the teachings of the spiritual leader of their sect, the Dawoodi Bohras.

  4. Simply amazing, very down to earth guys. Have heard a lot about them and their philanthropic work. Very few guys out there like them. All the best and keep up the good work. May we by the kind blessing of His Holiness Dr. Saydna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) see a cure to this killer disease soon, amen.

  5. Brother Ashraf and Bahen Shamim have done many good things for Bohras and others and some what Dahod wala too, but based on Dahod’s cultural, educational, social and economical condition, Dr. Ashraf and Dr. shamim have to do much more for poor people of Dahod. Dahod is located on the border of Gujarat and Madhya Pardesh. It is basically a backward majority area. More than 50% Dahod walas lives below poverty line and need all kinds of help, medical, educational and social welfare. Hope, Br. Asharaf and Shamim will do some thing on grand scale for poor people of Dahod.

  6. i am so touched to read this..and i am truly proud to be a a follower of AQA MAULA TUS.. i got tears of happiness and am overwhelmed by this enormous task this couple has taken up and am inspired too…
    i can do my small bit…as i stay very close to burhanpur,the next time i visit DARGAH E HAKIMI my first ziarat (after aqa maula)will be for this amazing family..

    jazak allah

  7. This is great and amazing too. الخلق كلهم عيال الله فأحبهم إلى الله أنفعهم لعياله “The creation, all of them, are dependents of Allah, and the most beloved to Allah are those who benefit most His dependents.”

  8. Alhamdolillah, we have people like sister Shamim and bro Ashraf who from their own adversity in early life and God given wealth and good fortune are contributing towards making this world a better place to live in as every Muslim should endeavor.

    They are building hospitals in USA, India, Yemen, Mayanmar as their 2 daughters Tasneem and Nasreen are following their parents footsteps.

    This is a Sadqa-e-Jariyah. It will continue growing for ever in Charity in this world and hereafter.

    My hats are off to both of them.

  9. congrate Dr.shamim and brother ashraf, please do something for dahod’s medical facility, as two of the hospital of dawoodi bohra closed long ago, due to financial problem.

  10. Drs Ashraf & Shamim behen you are blessed truly to be Philantrophist as such.INNALLAHA LA YOZIO AJRAL MOHSENEEN
