Feeling that life is difficult, Suparmin finally changed professions to become a motorcycle taxi driver. His income slowly started to improve. In addition to being sufficient to meet their living needs, this couple can also pay for the school fees of their three children.

"Saving for the Hajj Registration"

"Although he has to work hard as a motorcycle taxi driver day and night to meet his family's needs, Suparmin is confident that he can fulfill his dream of going to the Holy Land. Little by little, he sets aside his income and saves it to register for the Hajj. 'I allocate a portion of my income to register for the Hajj with my wife,' said Suparmin."

               

"Selling Cattle"

The result of working diligently as a motorcycle taxi driver, Suparmin finally bought a cow for breeding. As time went by, the number of cows being raised increased to 3. By selling the 3 cows, Suparmin and his wife immediately registered for Hajj in 2012.

               

"During that time, I was very happy, finally I could fulfill my desire to register for the Hajj with my wife," he said.

He claimed that there was a blessing when registering for the pilgrimage, with the opening of Suparmin's fortune. After registering for the pilgrimage, slowly he could buy a stall in the market. He and his wife sell at the stall and earn a decent income. Until 2023, despite being in old age, 75-year-old Suparmin, who has 11 grandchildren, has fortune and feels compelled to go on a pilgrimage with his wife.
