Story From a Police Officer


Extracted from a lecture by Muhammad AlShareef, obtained from Khutbah.com.


A police officer in a Muslim country wrote the following letter to a Shaykh describing the events that led to his return to Allah. He recalls:


Seeing accidents and crash victims was a normal part of my day, but one incident was different.


My partner and I had parked on the shoulder of the highway and began to chat. In a random second, the scene shattered to the hideous sound of metal bodies becoming one. We threw our heads back to see what had happened: a head-on collision, the result of a vehicle slipping into the lane of the oncoming traffic.


You couldn’t describe the carnage. Two young men sprawled in the first car, both in critical condition. We carried them gently away from the car and rested them on the ground.


Quickly we returned to assist the owner of the second car. He was dead. Back we went to the two young men lying side by side on the pavement.


My partner began dictating the Shahadah to them. “Say: La iIaha illAllah (there is no god but Allah), La iIaha illAllah…â€


... their tongues wouldn’t acknowledge. They started humming the hypnotic lyrics of some song. I was terrified. My partner had experience however and he kept repeating his instruction.


I stood watching, no movement, eyes locked. Never in my life had I seen anything similar to what was going on before me. In fact, I’ve never actually seen someone die, and never in such a satanic way.


My partner continued to instruct them to say the Shahadah but there was no use. The hum of their song came to a slow silence, slowly. The first one stopped and then the other. Not a stir. Dead.


We carried them to our patrol car, my partner made no effort to speak. Not a whisper between us two as we carried the corpses to the nearest hospital.




"Has not the Time arrived for the Believers that their hearts in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of the Truth which has been revealed (to them), and that they should not become like those to whom was given Revelation aforetime, but long ages passed over them and their hearts grew hard? For many among them are rebellious transgressors." Al Quran 57:16

If you don't mind I would like to continue the story.


The Officer then forgot about the incident and a 2nd incident he said completely changed his life. The older officer that was with him ws gone, and he had a new partner, and the incident was weird to him. There was another car crash, and this time a young man was killed. The Officer went the kid to tell him to say the Shahada and to his suprise....The Young man was saying something, he listened closer, and what he was hearing was actually Qur'an! He was reciting in the most beautiful voice he had ever heard.


The Officer asked the brother of the young man about him. He told him, every weekend the young man would go to a very distant village and bring them rice and other food, since they were very poor. Everyone always told him that it was too expensive and it was too far. The young man said that it gave him time to practice his Qur'an. The young man would play Qur'an on his CD and eventually he learned a lot of Qur'an.


The Qur'an he was reciting as he was being put into the ambulance was the Qur'an he learned from the drive to the village. When he was about to die, he was saying the Shahada over and over again. When the young man started to fade, and finally died, he could see the greatest smile on that young man's face.




Salamu Alaikum
