She also financed many call to God convoys and she charged with the pilgrimage of many of sultans and leaders of the African tribes. In terms of the educational side, she, God blessed her, donated for building many schools and she sponsored many students until three judges, seventeen teachers and two holders of doctorate graduated from those students and the remaining became callers for God.
