"Her prayer was answered with this gift of sexual healing," he said. A voice from the spirit world told his grandmother, "You can cure anyone who has a small penis or whose penis has died. You can cure them!"
Her early patients were occupying Japanese soldiers during the Second World War and the first clinic opened in 1945. The enterprise grew as dramatically as Mak Erot claimed her patients did. Now there are several clinics around the country including Haji Saifuloh's, which he recently moved to a Jakarta hotel to take advantage of the extra parking.
The Telegraph recently visited the ill-lit room in the hotel where he practises his skills. A collection of wooden phalluses which patients can choose between as a model for their own was on display.
"Doctors are amazed with the results of our herbs," he boasted. "The famous sexologists have given our clinics the thumbs up."
He said that "countless" satisfied customers have paid him £40 each for a 30-minute consultation. "It always works," he claimed.
The claims made for Mak Erot's powers were large and, whatever their truth or otherwise, found a wide audience of believers. Indonesian newspapers carry many advertisements for imitators seeking to associate themselves with her talents.
Mak Erot has become a pop-culture icon, earlier this year her fame reached the silver screen in the teen comedy "Between you, me and Mak Erot". In the film the young protagonist launches himself on a series of sexual adventures but his partners find the encounters unrewarding. His problems worsen when he consults one of Mak Erot's imitators rather than the old lady herself.
"The audience laughed all the way through," said Suyadi, 68, a cinema employee.
Reports of he death prompted a flurry of bemused online comments from Internet users in the world's largest Muslim-majority country.
User "Jengkol" wrote on news website Detikcom: "Oh no, I didn't have the chance to go to Mak Erot and now she's dead. I'll just have to buy a vacuum. Maybe that could be the solution to my problem."
Fortunately, Mak Erot's secret potions and magic concoctions have been passed along to 21 designated heirs who will continue to "heal" Asian penises.
