Sabariah 001

Dear friends around the world,

I recently came across reports of this wonderful, compassionate and altruistic lady from Malaysia who has been carrying out great deeds for decades. I am always inspired by such exceptional people who live their lives for the benefit of others and so my students have put together a compendium of her work. Do read on.

I am extremely touched and motivated by this lady from Malaysia. Thank you “Makcik” Sabariah for being such a wonderful example to all of us.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

A Malaysian Mother Teresa of Montreal

Sabariah 002

Born in Johor, Sabariah Hussein’s family lived in Singapore for many years after her father secured a job as a teacher there in the 1950s. Growing up as one of six children, she saw charity being practised often by her parents, helping the needy on a regular basis. She is quoted saying,

“It’s in the genes. Cannot be helped. After all, that is what Islam teaches us.”

Sabariah 004

Her family returned to Malaysia after her father retired. After her parents had passed away and following a short stint working in Saudi Arabia, Sabariah got a job working as a special education teacher in Canada in 1985. She subsequently became a permanent resident there after her marriage to Michel Paul Alain who is also known by his Muslim name, Mohamad Ali Abdullah.

Following in her parents’ footsteps, she has been giving back by helping people out. It all began some 18 years ago when she sighted homeless in the town she lived in. She would offer them sandwiches she made at home. Besides the homeless, she would also invite a few Muslim sisters, who were begging for a living, to her house for a meal as she knew very well that staying on the streets could be really terrifying.

Troubled by what she saw and desperate to help the women get off the street, Sabariah eventually opened up her own home to them for a couple of months, to shelter them from the cold. She even thought of getting an apartment for them to live in, if and when she had enough money.

Sabariah 005

This led her to approach the Muslim Students Association of the University of Concordia near her home. It was a success as the students subsequently obtained permission for her to sell food items within the university’s premises to raise money for the apartment.

She started selling chicken biryani and salad, and was allowed to use the university’s kitchen to prepare the meals. With this, she made 200 to 300 dollars a day, and when more people learned about her cause, they gave her additional money for the apartment. She also received tithe funds. That was how her women’s shelter in Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, which is open to all women regardless of spiritual inclination, came about.

She is also very involved in the provision of thousands of meals at mosques spread throughout Montreal and also to anyone in need, regardless of race, religion or gender, working closely with River’s Edge Community Church and Unity Church. The Anglican Church, the Peace Initiative and The Rivers Edge Community Church in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce also supply her with necessities as needed.

Sabariah 003

Sabariah prepares meals for up to 300 people a day from her apartment. From there, a team of volunteers helps her feed the homeless, refugees, or indeed anyone who wants a hot meal. During the month of Ramadhan, she cooks for up to 1,000. She says that the reason for her charity is simple – feeding others brings joy and happiness. She has told CTV News,

“This is the happiness of my life, to see the smiles on people’s faces.”

Earlier this month, Sabariah garnered worldwide attention after a video documenting her contributions to the homeless community was published by Zinc. When the video of her feeding the homeless in Montreal was shared all over social media, people wondered how the cheerful 70-year-old woman who is Malaysia-born ended up in Canada.

She has gained the title “Muslim Mother Teresa” among locals for her hard work for the community, without receiving any aid from the Canadian government.

Sabariah 006

She has had her fair share of hardships throughout the years. In 2004 and 2005, she suffered two mild strokes. The first stroke occurred while she was asleep, right after she was done fundraising for the Indonesian tsunami victims. She ended up sleeping for three days straight, presumably from exhaustion. However, it wasn’t until she suffered her second stroke that doctors discovered her three-day sleep was actually a coma!

Sabariah is currently working with Human Concern International to help fund an orphanage for young Rohingya Muslims who are victims of ethnic cleansing in Myanmar. She has won multiple awards for her contributions, and even had the chance to meet Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. Unfortunately, she could not find the time to meet him because she was so busy helping the needy. She told Zinc,

“I really hope I will meet him one day so I can make him my favourite noodles, Malaysian style!”

She says she hopes the next generation will carry on her legacy.

“You need to help as many people as you can. You have the ability, you go out there and do it. Help to serve the homeless and the defenceless. I have served Muslims in church, and they come because they know I’m serving food there. The more you mix with people, the more you understand and love each other better. Show love, show passion. We are compassionate people.”

    This lady is truly inspiring. She started small in her own kitchen and doing that she can afford to help and then eventually she grew bigger as she has more resources. She did not have any form of assistance from the government and she can do it on her own. Her willpower and compassionate heart are really admirable.

    People like her is just like a bodhisattva selflessly working for the benefits of others.

  2. Wai Meng Wan on Dec 16, 2017 at 7:41 pm

    Colder countries, people need to have a lot of more clothing and more expenditure for their livelihood. So being in temperate countries is quite challenging and more expensive.

    Still it is a blessing to hear of this Malaysian lady who out of her deep compassion, helps the less fortunate in Montreal.

  3. JP on Dec 14, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    “She says that the reason for her charity is simple – feeding others brings joy and happiness.” Sabariah Hussein’s philosophy in life is simple yet profound. She is driven by the simple fact that people need help. She opens her own home to provide temporary shelter who those in need.

    What’s amazing is that she carried on after going through 2 strokes and a coma. Her selflessness to serving the needy regardless of race, religion and gender also opened doors for her to work together with Christian charities. Interfaith harmony is something to celebrate because it is the kindness and compassion that bring humanity together.

  4. Datuk May on Dec 8, 2017 at 5:51 pm

    Machik Sabariah left her home country of Malaysia for Canada. Yet she adapted to the new country and did what she had always been exposed to by her own family style of feeding people and taking care of others. Interesting that she humbly called this generosity of hers as being genetic.

    It is awesome to read about this former Malaysian lady with a big heart and took actions to feed many regardless of race, religion or gender.

    It is due to her kindness that when she was struck by stroke and slept for 3 days but yet not damaged at all, even when doctors confirmed that the 3 day sleep was that MaChik was in a coma. Kindness begat kindness from the divine.

  5. Stella Cheang on Dec 3, 2017 at 9:35 pm

    It is a heartwarming story of a simple lady with a one track mind of help others. We don’t see this type of devotion much anymore, as people are trying very hard to get ahead nowadays, devotion towards a cause without caring about recognition, without wanting what the next person has / enjoys and without wanting limelight is very rare. Happy to read the story of Muslim Mother Theresa, she is a shining example to all of us. Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing.

  6. Mingwen on Nov 30, 2017 at 7:33 am

    Another great individual, Makcik Sabariah, showing us that
    we should not give/help another who is in need ONLY when we are available / having extra. We should give as much as possible at all time as there are many who really need helps and what we give might save lives.

  7. Pastor Chia on Nov 30, 2017 at 6:23 am

    Inspiring of Makcik Sabriah story with her background single handed helping homeless people Canada. Is nice to see Malaysian have warmth heart helping others. This is what i like about being Malaysia explose with different religion yet there live harmony in society. I believe as human, we did not wish to see others are suffering, we will help others when they needed.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen inpiring by H.E.Tsem Rinpoche with his devotee student and volunteer started giving food to homeless people in Malaysia. Currently KSK even expend their service to food bank, give free treatment for sick people and helping homeless find job. I hope more and more people able to get help among our sociaty just like Makcik Sabriah selflessly helping homeless people at foreign county.

  8. nicholas on Nov 30, 2017 at 12:45 am

    What an inspiration lady that selflessly helping the homeless and poverty. Being selfless and go all the way to give, is the best way to live our life. What make her happy from her noble work is just a smile from the people that she helped. Her big heart doesn’t stop her believe in what she can do to help the people even in a foreign country. She manage everything by herself with passion and pure motivation and with that so many people benefited.

    This is really similar to what H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has been doing and teaches us to be compassion and focus out for others. Due to Rinpoche’s experience and compassion as Rinpoche knows how being a homeless look like, it’s inspired Rinpoche to set up Kechara Soup Kitchen that helped many people in Malaysia.

    We can see here people with great compassion create legacy and inspired people to live their life meaningfully.

  9. Andrea Lai on Nov 30, 2017 at 12:44 am

    It is very thoughtful of Rinpoche sharing this article. Makcik Sabariah resembles much on Rinpoche’s attitude on being generous and show kindness and love to people regardless of their backgrounds especially the homeless.

    I like to read when she mentioned how she started giving food to the homeless and even inviting them to her home for meal which show Makcik Sabariah is a very warmth and friendly lady. In my opinion, I think with her kind, friendly, loving nature earn her many respect and admiration of her success even including the Prime Minister too. Very impressive! 👍

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article. 🙏

  10. Pastor Henry Ooi on Nov 30, 2017 at 12:34 am

    It is selfless people like Sabariah Hussein, Mother Teresa, Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche that give real meaning to the word Compassion. Just like Sabariah Hussein, Rinpoche has always helped the less fortunate wherever he goes and Rinpoche founded Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) which was officially registered in 2008 in Malaysia. Today, KSK not only distribute food to the homeless but also give surplus food collected from supermarkets and wholesalers to the urban poor; provide free medical services and other community services to the needy in Malaysia. KSK wish to expand the free medical services by having a
    mobile clinic to tend to outpatient sickness and illness for the needy. Also, KSK wish to start a nurture centre to give free skill training to the homeless so they can find employment and leave the streets. The nurture centre would also be open to the poor who could not afford to pay the fee at regular skill learning places. KSK committee hope that the mobile clinic and nurture centre would materialise soon with the generosity of kind Malaysians.

    This article make me remind of Rinpoche previous article ( https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/personal-attendant/high-low.html ).
    What “Makcik” Sabariah did really touched my heart deeply.

    Highly commanded another article to read for : https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/louis-tse-does-something-incredible.html

  12. pammie yap on Nov 29, 2017 at 11:27 pm

    For a 70 year old, she is simply amazing! How inspirational to read about her efforts, kindness and love for people regardless their race just like Kechara Soup Kitchen (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-soup-kitchen-ksk/why-i-conceived-of-kechara-soup-kitchen-or-ksk.html) started by Rinpoche. The difference is, Rinpoche Himself, experienced homelessness and know how hard it is to be one, hence KSK is setup to help the less fortunate.

    Makcik Sabariah is a great motivation for many as she shows that kindness does not discriminate. Her parents raised her well!

    Without hesitation, she invite people home so that they can have a safe haven. How thoughtful. Even at her age, she does so much for others. Thinking of others more than herself. Truly selfless. And, imagine yourself being too busy to meet your president?

  13. Pastor Albert on Nov 29, 2017 at 5:56 pm

    At the age of 70 years old, have 2 times stroke, been coma for 3 days, She has more excuses than anyone for not doing all these, but yet, all these never stop her for serving others and helping others, she still go all out to help and help and help and help others.

    As what Rinpoche always said, looking at the children’s behavior and action, we will know what type of parents they have, Sabariah really represented her parents well, she has inherited her parent’s qualities and she is extending it to others, with her devotion on her community work, she has attracted many people to come help, this is really great indeed.

    I specially love it when reading the part where she is working with different churches to serve foods, and she is a Muslim, I always believe between religion, there shouldn’t have any conflict because all religion teaches loving kindness.

    Ms Sabariah really deserve the title of Muslim Mother Teresa.

  14. Shelly Tai on Nov 25, 2017 at 11:57 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story . Madam Sabariah has realise that happiness come from helping others this way of attain happiness is not only apply in Buddhism in others religion as well, if more and more people become religious then the world will be very wonderful to live in.

  15. Joey Tan on Nov 23, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    Thank you Tsem rinpoche and blog team for the article. A very touching article. Madam Sabariah so kind of her and understanding by preparing food for the homeless. A good example for everyone not only for the specific religion but to all the religion out there.

  16. Samfoonheei on Nov 23, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    A Malaysian mother Teresa ……Sabariah is such a compassionate lady that was named as Mother Teresa of Montreal. She is one kind soul helping the homeless regardless of race and religion. She understand the pain and sufferings of the people especially students had gone through without food. She was brought up in away she saw how her parents had the unprivileged and she is following their foot steps. She was an education teacher ,saw the foreign students and many of the students struggling in their daily expenses that she decided to provide foods and even shelter for them. Sabariah has indeed inspired many people to volunteer and to help each other . She has spent her life helping and giving where she found happiness doing so. May she live long to inspired more people .

  17. Jason on Nov 23, 2017 at 3:41 am

    First of all, I want salute to Makcik Sabariah for her good and virtuous deeds in helping many people who need shelter and foods. The actions of Sabariah can inspire our society to give more love and care to anyone around us.
    Sabariah devoted his life to bring happiness to those in needs. Just like a mothers give love to their children.

    Puan Sabariah really has a big heart. Puan Sabariah Hussein, who has spent most of her resources, strength, time and energies to help the homeless people and refugees by giving them food and drinks. At the age of 70, still can be so active and serving the needy. Very proud of her achievement. My deepest respect to her. May all of us be inspired by Puan Sabariah and follow her good example in helping the needy spontaneously all the time. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this inspiring story 🙏😍

  19. Irene Lim on Nov 22, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    Mak Cik Sabariah is indeed the Malaysian Mother Teresa of Montreal. At 70 years she is still working tirelessly for the less privileged. My deepest respect to her. Her kindness and compassion to all is irrespective of race, religion and creek.

  20. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 22, 2017 at 7:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring article written about respected Puan Sabariah Hussein, who has spent most of her resources, strength, time and energies to help the homeless people and refugees by giving them food and drinks. There is no qualification required to help the needy but requires our consistent effort, selflessness, compassion and most importantly is willingly to reduce the suffering of others no matter what it takes from us. The real spiritual practice should bring benefits to others either in physical aspect such as food, clothing and shelter to live or mentally aspect in the form of good advice, moral teachings, motivation and even encouragement to help others.

    Puan Sabariah has shown and practiced equanimity to help anyone regardless of race, religion or gender that can bring so much peace, harmony and happiness to the people within the vicinity surrounding her. May all of us be inspired by Puan Sabariah and follow her good example in helping the needy spontaneously all the time.

    Humbly with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  22. Callista on Nov 22, 2017 at 12:34 am

    Madam Sabariah shower the homeless with her love by providing free food and free accommodation regardless of religion and ethnicity
    This remind me of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche teaching Five ways to love more.
    (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/five-ways-to-love-more-by-tsem-rinpoche.html)
    Well done Madam Sabariah and keep up
    Thanks Rinpoche and other for sharing

  23. Yee Mun (KISG) on Nov 22, 2017 at 12:07 am

    Makcik Sabariah, you are amazing. At the age of 70, still can be so active and serving the needy. Very proud of her achievement. May her work inspired more compassionate people to do the same and make the world a better one.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  24. yinping on Nov 20, 2017 at 1:26 am

    A beautiful soul at her 70 named Sabariah Hussein, who a Malaysian citizen born in Johor Bahru still insisted and devoted helping the needy on a regular basis. The reason for her charity is simple: feeding others brings her joy.

    Although she is a Muslim, she works closely with River’s Edge Community Church and Unity Church. She also set up a women’s shelter for those in need regardless of races and religious. This is a true spiritual practitioner who brings love and kindness to others tirelessly and selflessly.

  25. Lin Mun on Nov 19, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Puan Sabariah really has a big heart. She cooks and serves everyone regardless of race as she only wants to bring joy, happiness and warm food to the homeless. It is already not easy to cook for 20 or 30 person but she managed to cook for 300 a day from her apartment and even up to 1,000 during Ramadhan. Her work it a great inspiration to many and great reminder to always love and help people no matter what their background is. And now at 70 years old still continue working to help the refugees. So we also should not give up helping others and don’t use age as an excuse.

  26. Fong on Nov 19, 2017 at 6:29 pm

    Puan Sabariah Hussein is an inspiration to all. She believes in helping everyone regardless of race or creed or religion. She is well supported by the various church groups in her hometown of Montreal which speaks volumes for the work she is doing. A truly compassionate person who shows what being spiritual means and what following the teachings of her religion means i.e. to be kind, compassionate, loving and equitable.

    Thank you for highlighting the good work of people like Puan Sabariah Hussein that she may be an inspiration for the next generation to take over the mantle.

    This is a very interesting article to know that Mongolian astrology is closely related to Buddhism. Some of us might think astrology is a very superstitious practice but it is practised in Buddhism.

    From the scripture, our body body parts are related to different planets. In a way, it means our body and the universe are in fact one. Therefore, we should respect our environment because if our mother nature has lost its balance, our health will be affected as well.

    The most recent celebrity that was reported to have shown some interest in Buddhism is Katy Perry. People often think being a celebrity is wonderful, but behind all the smiles and the beauty, there is much suffering and pain… We have seen it many times, and celebrities who fail to cope with the stress and public pressure often take up dangerous habits or suicidal. I’m not claiming that I know of Katy Perry’s life and difficulties, but as long as we are all in samsara, we are all subjected to suffering.

    The International Mountain Museum (IMM) in Pokhara, Nepal isq all about the 14 highest mountains in the world…all of them are at least 8,000 meters in height! Those interested in mountaineering would come to Pokhara as most of the trekking routes start from there.

    Out of the top 14 mountains, 8 are within Nepal! Since 1920 (when mountaineering was still new to the world) many researchers would come to this beautiful country to do research on things like how the mountains were formed…what the exact height of the mountain is…what minerals can be found there etc.

    Malaysia adopts a constitutional monarchy system that is a mixture of hereditary and elected monarchs. Malaysia consists of several administrative regions across thirteen states and three federal territories. Nine states are ruled by monarchs, four states are supervised by a Yang di-Pertua Negeri or Governor, and the Federal Government controls the remaining three federal territories.

    Meditation puts children in touch with their most natural condition, which is free, expressive, cooperative, loving and peaceful. This is a direct counter for everything else in society that encourages them to think of only “me, me, me” from a young age, and to engage in competition which encourages division. Hence meditation is something our world desperately needs because the competition we teach children will become greed when they are adults competing to win. It’s this greed and need to win that is slowly killing our planet and destroying all of our natural resources. Hence meditation is one of the most valuable habits a child can be encouraged to learn and integrate as part of their daily life.

    Contrary to popular belief, not all meditation techniques produce similar effects of body and mind. Indeed, a recent study by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has demonstrated for the first time that different types of Buddhist meditation – namely the Vajrayana and Theravada styles of meditation – elicit qualitatively different influences on human physiology and behaviour, producing arousal and relaxation responses respectively.

    In particular, the NUS research team found that Vajrayana meditation, which is associated with Tibetan Buddhism, can lead to enhancements in cognitive performance.

    Prevent Snakes in Your Backyard

    Artemisia Vulgaris (mugwort or common wormwood) is one of several species in the genus Artemisia which have common names that include the word mugwort. This species is also occasionally known as Felon Herb, Chrysanthemum Weed, Wild Wormwood, Old uncle Henry, Sailor’s Tobacco, Naughty Man, Old Man or St. John’s Plant (not St John’s wort).

    In some places, wormwood is considered as an invasive weed. It is a very common plant growing on nitrogenous soils such as waste places and roadsides. It is a tall herbaceous perennial plant with a woody root.

    The downside of this plant is that it is an aggressive and invasive plant that takes over wherever it is planted which leads to another issue of management control.

    Not using some muscles for quite a time it’s known that they will weaken.

    A perfect example is a leg injury like a broken bone (fibula) and you’re supposed to relax and use the wheelchair for some time in order to let the bone heal. In the meantime, your muscles won’t be active and thus become weaker. This is the same with the muscles surrounding your eye lens.

    If it happens that you are wearing glasses as many do and you don’t practice exercises for your eyes, your vision will slowly weaken. Your eye muscles need practice just like every other muscle in your body.

    A US court has upheld a law forcing Phoenix pet stores to only sell rescue animals, giving homeless cats and dogs a better chance at a second life.

    Stores in Phoenix now cannot source animals to sell from commercial breeders.

    The decision, which was passed by Phoenix City Council in December 2013 to tackle the rising amount of homeless animals in the area, has since been upheld in the courts to the delight of animal welfare activists.

    The Humane Society of the United States senior vice president Jonathan Lovvorn has welcomed the decision by Arizona’s largest city and state capital.

    The hardest thing about being Buddhist is we have to do things differently from the norm. Like what this person says in the video, usually when people say or do bad things about us, we will react immediately to prove them right. But as a Buddhist, we should not react to encourage more conflicts. We have to give the victory to others.

    The secular environment we are is not a conducive environment for us to do our spiritual practice. It is very easy for us to slip away from our spiritual practice with all the temptation. We have to have a very strong mind to keep up with our practice.

    Tsem Rinpoche has always been fascinating about Bigfoot, UFO, Loch Ness, Findhorn, Bermuda Triangle and strange phenomena happening around the world. Its wonderful to have Bigfoot figurine as a gift for Rinpoche from Pastor Seng Piow. Wow fantastic been made in Malaysia at KECHARA SARASWATI ARTS DEPT. So Kechara team are doing well ,been talented has come out with this Bigoot figurine. Definitely looks real based on the famous footage by Patterson. Great effort and time must had put to produce it. The real footage where Bigfoot was caught on camera has since proven that Bigfoot do exist after all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Martin for sharing this wonderful post. I would not be who I am today without Rinpoche’s teachings. I thank Rinpoche every day for giving me such a strong spiritual blessing in my life. He was very sympathetic and cordial to even an unknown person. He was truly a living Buddha who has a thousand arms. He has a strict and humor method to teach us and we won’t feel been left out. I do enjoyed his Dharma teachings in You tubes and reading Rinpoche’s blog. Rinpoche is truly a spiritual legacy infused with his divine power and blessings.

    Loyalty is the ability to put others before ourselves and stick with them in good times and bad or difficult times. Show loyalty to friends, family, teachers and significant others by being honest, trustworthy, supportive, and generous. Maintain healthy boundaries with those around us so we can be loyal to them in a productive way. The spiritual life of the teacher has an impact on us as a student. We cannot expect someone who lies to us to be loyal to us. Honesty is what creates loyalty. Loyalty needs to be handled with honesty and if we cannot be honest then we do not deserve loyalty.
    Thank you for this wonderful sharing as a reminder for us all .

    Taking care of hamster needs special attention after all. Thanks Wei Tan for this details caring of hamsters . Good and safe bedding leads to happy and healthy hamsters. Well, there are types of hamster bedding but owners needs to get a good, safe, non-toxic, odour-free and allergy-friendly hamster bedding which is available in the market. It is important to follow the very latest advice if hamster is to remain fit and healthy throughout their life. Interesting read .

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
