Dr Amalina Bakri is a modern-day Malaysian icon. She scored the most 17As for SPM 2004, the most As in Malaysian history at that time. She has secured scholarships upon scholarships, and today, she’s a leading UK-based surgeon making waves upon waves.
But apparently, some people thought she was a “disgrace” for taking off her hijab years ago, one netizen tweets.
But now that she has agreed to help treat Ainul, a Malaysian baby with rare cancer, he hopes they realise how wrong they are.
Uncles, aunts and sometimes teachers used to refer to Dr Amalina as a disgrace. They blatantly judge her based on her appearance (hijab, skirts etc). But look who’s making a difference now? It doesn’t take a tudung labuh to give back to society, it just takes a heart of gold https://t.co/schKp1Id9j

On the 22nd of April 2019, Dr Amalina voiced her intention to help via Instagram,

“It was very heartbreaking to hear about baby Ainul’s story. She has to go through such hardship at such a young age. I am currently in touch with Ainul’s mother and have received her medical records. I’ve contacted a few of my colleagues, but because it is a very complex case, we need to do a multidisciplinary meeting (between different specialities) to discuss her case.”
Her insistence of helping Ainul has undoubtedly created a wave of admiration for Dr Amalina and is certainly a slap in the face to those who condemned her for her way of life — and netizens agree!
One netizen quoted a hadith, saying, “Allah does not look at your appearance or your possessions, but he looks at your heart and your deeds”, and added that Amalina has a “heart of gold.”
Another continues to condemn the holier than thou Malaysians who put appearance ahead of a person’s actions, “I wonder how [they’re] going to respond to this?”
And Dr Amalina is an inspiration for Malaysian women who have to deal with the constant bullsh*t because of the way they dress.
We applaud Dr Amalina and her medical team for their efforts to help Ainul, and we hope that her surgery is successful!
