In contrast to Nyai Rasimah (60), a resident of Jalan Kejawen, Kemuning Sub-district, Palembang, her eyes cannot function perfectly, only her left eye can be used, and that is not very clear.
In the midst of her limitation of seeing using only one eye, Rasimah remained passionate in his worship, especially in studying Quran. These conditions make him, must learn extra hard to be able to study well.
Rasimah learned to study about two months ago. Currently she has entered the last letter of the letter hijaiyah. Rasimah who sells cakes and nasi uduk lives with her husband who is also not much different age with her.
