Ithmaar Bank, a Bahrain-based Islamic retail bank, presented a $1 million grand prize to Bahraini mother of two, Fatema Al Alawi.
She won the Thimaar prize draw in December.
The draw was held remotely at the bank’s headquarters in Seef Tower and supervised by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism (MOICT), as well as external auditors BDO Bahrain and the Bank’s internal auditors.
“On behalf of all of us at Ithmaar Bank, we congratulate Fatema and her family,” said Ithmaar Bank Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Abdul Hakeem Al Mutawa.
“We are pleased to be able to bring so much joy to so many families in Bahrain.
The Thimaar scheme is not only designed to encourage responsible financial behaviour by making saving more rewarding, but the prizes also have the potential to change lives.”
“The main reasons why I bank with Ithmaar Bank for the past 15 years is its courteous and friendly customer service.
The branch staff are very kind, helpful, attentive and are always available when I require any assistance,” said Al Alawi.
“When I received the call from the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the bank, I felt so great with his welcoming and passing the wonderful news.
This phone call came as a pleasant surprise to me as I didn’t expect it at all,” said Al Alawi.
“Alhamdulillah, this is one of the many blessings of Allah.
I will invest the prize amount for the future of my daughters, and I thank Ithmaar Bank for giving me this great chance to win this prize of Thimaar.”
Al Mutawa said: “At Ithmaar Bank, we remain committed to improving our services and rewarding our loyal customers.
Ithmaar Bank offers the highest number of prizes of any similar scheme in Bahrain, making the Thimaar account one of the most rewarding saving schemes in the Kingdom.
“This helps provide additional incentives for savers. Additionally, these potentially life-changing prizes can be won with a minimum of BD30 deposit only.”
In 2021, a total of 2,271 prizes were awarded, the most offered by any bank in Bahrain.
Customers were able to win a $1 million grand prize, six quarterly prizes worth $100,000 each, along with many more cash prizes.
