King Fahd's Funeral Moves Priest..

Recommended Posts

Priest embraces Islam after Fahd funeral

By Mariam Al Hakeem, Correspondent

 

Riyadh:

The funeral of King Fahd, conducted in a simple manner, has encouraged a well-known Christian priest in Italy to embrace Islam, a Saudi preacher said.

 

The priest, whose name the source refused to reveal and who witnessed the late king's funeral on television, found that it was as simple as the funeral of an ordinary man.

 

Rome-based Saudi Islamic preacher Abdullah Al Malek told Gulf News that the simple funeral of King Fahd changed the priest's mind. The priest was already conversant with Islamic literature and had listened to several Muslim preachings on tape.

 

"The priest watched the funeral of King Fahd and another person on television and did not find any difference between the two. There was only one funeral prayer for the two and no separate prayer was held for the king. This great example of equality and the late king's simple grave influenced the priest and pro-mpted him to embrace Islam," Malek said.

 

"I was never moved by your Islamic books or cassettes, but the simple royal funeral shook me and changed my mind," Malek quoted the priest as saying.

subhanallah! that's amazing :D the funeral strengthened my faith in Islam too...seeing a multi-billionaire go out so simply, so modestly because he had faith in Islam, inshallah. Contrast that with the fireworks and explosions of HST's cremation-ashes-launching ceremony last night, complete with alcohol and such celebrations of an addict...and you see why Islam is the straight path...

 

:D

Assalaamu'alaykum

 

Masya Allah.. that is great.

 

I remember watching the funeral on tv, and my younger sister (who's about 17) asked me how come a king did not get the "funeral of a king." I simply explained to them that all muslims will be buried in the same way because when we die, what we were in this world does not matter after we die.

My mother was also half-watching the funeral and reading her book on baking, but insya Allah she heard me explain..

 

wassalaamu'alaykum

Wa-'Alaikum-Salaam,

AlhamdulilLah, Allahu Akbar,

Simple small events make people see Islam as the Truth.

Let's ensure that we act in a humble manner, adn modestly, as well as upholding our Islamic principles, and more will turn to Islam, insha'Allah.
