Saudi woman builds mosque after saving husbands salary for 30 years


The woman's story touched several hearts on social media.

A Saudi woman is an epitome of love and dedication who saved her late husband's retirement salary for 30 years and built a mosque in his name. 

The woman's story touched several hearts after her son, Mohammad Al Harbi, shared it on Twitter on Monday. Al Haribi tweeted a picture showing his mother standing on the premises of the newly built mosque. He wrote on Twitter: "How great are you, mother... she never enjoyed my late father's modest retirement salary. She spent 30 years saving it up one riyal at a time until she built a mosque in my father's name. May he rest in peace and be granted a place in heaven. We belong to God and to him we return."  

Within hours the tweet went viral and was widely circulated online with people expressing hailing the woman for the tremendous work. 'May God unite them in the afterlife', wrote one Twitter user while another wrote: 'Love in its greatest form', according to a Step Feed report.
