A Jobless Dubai resident’s life has taken a turn amid this pandemic after he was announced the winner of the second prize at the Mahzooz millionaire draw in Dubai – and won Dh 500,000.

The 53-year-old was wondering how he would send any money back home to his family for Eid Al Adha – God gave him, what he calls the ‘best gift of his life’ this Eid in the form of this huge prize money, when he needed it the most.

Nazeer Ali lost his job few months back due to the Coronavirus pandemic and was struggling financially as he is the only bread earner of the family, whom he recently moved back to India as he could not afford to keep them here without having a stable job.


“I have been jobless for a few months. I had to send my family back home to cut down on expenses during this uncertain time. I felt down and lonely, but I never lost hope. I always believed in the power of destiny, and always saw the light at the end of the tunnel. My big win with Mahzooz is proof that optimism and positivity always attracts great things in life”, said Nazeerali.

The Indian expat, who is from the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, jointly won the 34th weekly live Mahzooz draw after both of them matched five out of six numbers and shared the Dh1 million second prize.

The father of two, Nazeerali, said it “took a while for this life-changing win to sink in” when he first saw the email from Mahzooz declaring him the winner for the second prize.

“The first thing I did after seeing the email was to call my family and tell them that all our worries were over,” added the winner.

“I have always dreamt of starting my own cafeteria in Dubai, but I thought that this would be impossible for an ordinary man like me. But now I know for sure that nothing is impossible. Thank you to Mahzooz,” said Nazeerali.

The lucky man also has a great plan for his kids and wife in India. “Once I start my own business, I will bring my family back to UAE. My wife and two children are eagerly waiting for those good days to return. I can’t wait for the four of us to be together again!”


“I have seen hardships and disappointments while looking for a job. I know very well how it feels to be without work. Therefore, I will also support the unemployed members within my extended family so that they do not lose hope and can stay positive and hopeful about life,” he added.

“I advise everyone to keep trying their luck with Mahzooz and one day, they can also fulfill their dreams,” concluded Nazeerali.
