Recipient of the Jamiyah Exemplary Mother Award in 1999

Mdm Asmah Bee endured endless fortitude and strength in the face of adversity. Her twenty four years of marriage were filled with pain and silent sufferings.
Notwithstanding the physical abuse she suffered for over two decades, she managed to pick up the pieces and raise her family single-handedly. Her children are a measure of her success as a mother and her tenacious faith in life has inspired them to achieve greater heights despite the odds.
Her life experiences combined with her dedication to raising children made her a winner and a clear inspiration to mothers everywhere.
