Mohammed Dewji has surpassed on what is even required of him to give to the poor. Giving up half of your wealth is no small matter, he works hard for his money, he puts in 100 hours of work per week and him giving it up just like that? is commendable. He has a good heart, and what I say to you is focus on putting it to things that will live for decades to come if not forever. You are an inspiration to many and I hope that you inspire other rich men in Tanzania to follow suit.
May Allah bless you and your family with more and may he guide you to where he wants you to put it.
