Among the marginalized community in Malaysia, refugees are perhaps the most handicapped in terms of their rights to have basic necessities as a human, just because they possess no passport. Massacred in their homeland, yet not welcomed in the state they take refuge.
In Malaysia, the Rohingya community has always been a black sheep to deny any refugees the right to basic necessities. They are blamed right and left for whatever reason the locals could think of, they simply hated for just existing. Therefore, racial abuse has always been the case for refugees living in Malaysia.
A touch of hope, however, does exist for them in Madrasah Muhajir wal-Ansar, run by Ustaz Alias and Ustaz Ibrahim who take marginalized children to their safe space where they are educated and adopted in the madrasah where otherwise they would not even grasp any chance for education.
While the madrasah only adopts Rohingyan children, in the beginning, Ustaz Alias starts to take more local marginalized children as the Movement Control Order is further extended. They are of Malays and Sabahan whose family is in deep poverty where their parents could not look after their welfare. Some are from homeless families.
Under the welfare of Ustaz Alias, they are building a community with diverse racial backgrounds living under one roof, all educated in Islamic teaching. Ustaz Alias is constantly looking for donors to run the madrasah and would be adopting more children in the future.
